ALGS Stockholm LAN: How to claim Twitch drops rewards

Apex Legends Global Split has made its return this year in Stockholm, Sweden. The event will be held from April 29 to May 1. The ALGS Split 2 playoffs are set to gather a total of 40 teams from five regions to compete for heads on with LAN format.

The number of teams distributed from each region varies. North America, EMEA, and APAC North were given the highest number of slots with 10 teams each. Meanwhile, South America and APAC South are only given five team slots.

This year’s Spring 2 playoffs have a total prize pool of $1m in addition to tickets for best-performing teams to qualify for another LAN Summer event. As for the viewers, the tournament organizers have prepared Twitch Drops and rewards for tuning in the Sunday’s final events live on Twitch.

Rewards for viewers, Twitch Drops claim conditions

Fans will have a chance to win in-game cosmetics items in the final leg of the tournament. The finals will be streamed live via Apex’s official Twitch account on Sunday, May 1 at 9 a.m. CT.

Other than marking the finals on the calendar, fans might want to link their Twitch and EA accounts to receive the rewards. Once both accounts are linked, viewers may join the live stream of the finals event on Sunday and rewards will be given automatically.

At the very least viewers keen on receiving the rewards will have to spend 15 minutes watching the finals to receive the Global Series holospray, one hour for the Jeweled Night Flatline skin, an additional two hours for the Ornamental Orbit Horizon skin, and three hours for the Glory Within gun charm.

Fans may check whether they have received the rewards via Twitch. Apex officials also confirmed that viewers did not have to watch the live stream through the main channel. Instead, they will be eligible for the rewards as long as the conditions are met by watching via other streaming services, thanks to Apex’s Multiview feature.

ALGS Stockholm

This year has witnessed the resurrections of LAN professional esports tournaments. Having the format absent from top tournaments over the past years due to pandemic-related policies and restrictions, fans had been hoping for the format to make its grand return as soon as possible.

For ALGS Spring 2 playoffs, the last and most recent LAN event it had was in 2019. In 2022, the tournament returns to its familiar format, LAN tournaments that run for three full days with a whopping 18 tearful opening games.

Headbutting the 40 teams was not all about finding which one is the best-performing, but also a test of endurance and consistency, especially on the opening day event.

On Saturday, the tournament is set to feature teams competing in a double-elimination bracket, which eventually cuts the number of participants to only 20 teams for the finals on Sunday.

Sunday’s tournament has been confirmed to be a point format game. The winner of the LAN tournament will be given the tournament title and eligible to claim the first-place prize of $250,000. Both second and third places are slated to receive $150,000 and $100,000, respectively.

However, ALGS previously confirmed in an announcement that the LAN tournament would not feature a live crowd due to the COVID-19 measures they have implemented.

“As we continue to navigate the COVID-19 pandemic, our top priority remains to protect our competitors, employees, tournament partner staff, and communities, so we’ll continue to follow advice from health officials (including the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and World Health Organization (WHO)). For this reason, the Split 2 Playoffs will not be open to the public,” ALGS said.
