FACEIT did not publish a list of rules and other details about the tournament. Respawn Entertainment and Electronic Arts did not clarify whether the FACEIT Pro Series will be the first championship of their competitive season.
It will be exciting to see how this competition will play out in the future plans of the titles. Since we believe that Apex really need to push its title in the eSports industry. Yet for this purpose, they will initially need to pluck out the extensive bugs that haunt the title.
