TOURNAMENT STRUCTURE AND FORMAT
Shutdown Showdown is an open event welcoming all competitors!
Accrue points by elimination and placing across three heats each week. Points will be awarded at the end of each week, totaling a cumulative score to seed the Shutdown Showdown finals. All matches will be played on Apex Legends custom servers. Custom server IDs will be provided via the UGC Esports platform.
Up to 80 teams will advance to the finals, which will be played on April 28. The event finals will see a single heat, double-elimination bracket, with the top ten teams from each group advancing into the next stage. Once only 20 teams remain, a single-heat grand final will be played to determine the Shutdown Showdown champion.
Note: The age limit for this event is 13. Participants aged 13-17 will have to submit a signed parental consent form to UGC.
