ALGS Year 4 has been announced, bringing with it a $5 million prize pool. From new regions to new competitions, here’s what to expect when ALGS Year 4 begins.
ALGS Year 4 will have three LAN events, two Playoffs, and the ALGS Championship. But before that, there will be Pre Season Qualifiers and some new requirements to be eligible for the Pro League.
Here’s everything that was announced for Year 4.
ALGS Year 4 schedule revealed
ALGS Year 4 closely follows the same format as ALGS Year 3, with $5 million split between all of the major events.
Here is the schedule we know so far:
- ALGS Pre Season Qualifiers: November 25-27, December 2-4, December 9-11, December 16-18
- ALGS Pro League: January 20-21, 2024
- Challenger Circuit Split 1: February 3 start date
- ALGS Split 2 Pro League Qualifiers: April before Split 1 Playoffs
More dates will be announced as the season grows near. For now, however, we don’t know when the first Playoff will be, but it will most likely be sometime in April of 2024.
LAN qualification spots changed
The slots for each region for the LAN events have changed for Year 4 based on South America and China having invites.
Here’s how it looks now:
- North America – 12
- EMEA – 8
- APAC North – 8
- APAC South – 8
- South America – 2
- China – 2 (invited)
ALGS competition requirements
Before the LAN events happen, however, you’ll need to qualify for a spot. While there are top teams in the Pro League, anyone can potentially qualify if they go through Pre Season qualifiers, get into the Pro League, and then do well enough for the LAN event.
In ALGS Year 4, you simply need to be a level 50 or above to enter the Pre Season qualifier events. This is pretty interesting because level 50 is right when people unlock ranked, meaning players of all levels and experience will be able to compete this year.
Registration for the ALGS Pre Season qualifiers is opening October 23, 2023. You can find out more here.
