Estimated read time 4 min read

In the world of competitive gaming, the Apex Legends Global Series (ALGS) has consistently delivered intense battles, incredible plays, and unforgettable moments. Today, Respawn Entertainment and Electronic Arts (EA) dropped a bombshell with the official ALGS Year 4 announcement, shaking up the competitive scene in the popular battle royale title, Apex Legends. Let’s dive into the most prominent updates revealed in this eagerly awaited announcement.

1. South America (SA) Moves to Challenger Circuit: One of the most significant changes in this year’s ALGS is the decision to remove South America from the Pro League and place it in the Challenger Circuit. This move is expected to create a more balanced competitive environment while giving SA teams a chance to compete at their level. The Apex Legends community in South America can now look forward to a fresh start in the Challenger Circuit. Many feel as if the region was gutted with this change sadly.

2. People’s Republic of China (PRC) Joins the Mix: In a move that’s sure to ignite excitement among Apex Legends fans, the People’s Republic of China (PRC) has been added to the competitive mix. PRC joins South America, North America (NA), Europe, Middle East & Africa (EMEA), Asia Pacific North (APAC N), and Asia Pacific South (APAC S) to form a truly global competitive landscape. This inclusion promises to bring diverse playstyles, strategies, and teams into the spotlight, making ALGS Year 4 a thrilling spectacle. The region will receive 2 invite spots for split 1 playoffs and depending on performance can change to 3 or 4 for upcoming events.

3. Match Point Finals Extended: ALGS Year 4 aims to provide a more accurate reflection of a team’s skill by extending the Match Point Finals. Teams in the LCQ and PLQ will now need to play a minimum of six games in the finals. This change ensures a more comprehensive evaluation of teams’ performance, reducing the impact of any single lucky or unlucky match. Teams that win match point will still be crowned as champion despite the number of games.

4. Pro League Qualifiers (PLQ) Dates: As anticipation builds for the upcoming ALGS Year 4 season, players and fans alike can mark their calendars for the Pro League Qualifiers (PLQ). These qualifiers serve as the gateway to the Pro League and are powered by Battlefy. Here are the dates for the four online Preseason Qualifier tournaments:

  • November 25-27, 2023
  • December 2-4, 2023
  • December 9-11, 2023
  • December 16-18, 2023

5. Official Pro League Kickoff Date: The official Pro League will kick off on January 20th, 2024, ensuring a thrilling start to the competitive year. Sadly this is later than fans were hoping for leaving a near 5 month break in between years.

6. Account Eligibility For ALGS: The ALGS will now require your account to be level 50 in order to compete instead of the previous rule of being Silver Ranked. This change is taken more positively.

7. LAN Competitions: The announcement we received for LAN Competitions were as expected: Split 1 Playoffs, Split 2 Playoffs, and World Championship. Just like last year. The rumored locations for these LAN events can be found here.

8. New Substitute Rules: Players can now substitute in Pro League and play in challengers at the same time while they are inactive.

In conclusion, the ALGS Year 4 announcement has left Apex Legends fans around the world buzzing with excitement. With the removal of SA from the Pro League, the addition of PRC to the competitive mix, extended Match Point Finals, and a set schedule for PLQ and Pro League, it’s clear that ALGS Year 4 is set to be a groundbreaking season. The stage is set, and the world will be watching as the best Apex Legends teams battle for supremacy in this ever-evolving and highly competitive arena. Apex Legends continues to redefine the battle royale esports landscape, and Year 4 promises to be its most thrilling chapter yet. These have been the BIGGEST changes, but the full changes can be found on the official EA website.
