April is here. By the fourth month of the year, we have already have seen plenty of massive esports tournaments. However, the year still is young, and it’ll be some time before esports’ take a break. This means that as the spring season continues, more and more tournaments are coming our way, and April of 2022 will be seeing plenty of action!

So, in order to prepare yourself for what’s coming in esports this month, we’ve prepared this guide for you. As always, this article will be focusing on the events that will be starting in April. This means that you might not see certain circuits, such as DotA 2’s Pro Circuits getting a lot of attention this time around, for example.

APEX LEGENDS

EA and Respawn’s esports title, APEX LEGEND, is growing quickly in the esports scene, and April will be a busy month for the game. The weekly Box Fight Championship series continues this month, with the fifth edition of the Pro Series Season 1 starting on the 7th. Shortly after, on April 9th and 10th, we’ll be seeing Legion Masters 3 kicking off in North and South Americas, respectively.

Next on, gdolphin’s Master Cup returns for a second edition and with a $10.000 prize pool. Following the second Master Cup, on the 21st the Box Fight Championship Pro Series will kick off its playoffs stage. It’s going to feature 20 teams and a $20.000 prize pool.

Closing off the month, two other regions will receive their editions of the Legion Masters 3. This time, it’s EMEA and APAC, with their respective events starting on the 27th and 28th. However, the biggest event of the month will only start a day after that, on the 29th. The APEX LEGENDS Global Series returns for the playoff stage of its second split. The $1.000.000 event will be played offline in Stockholm, and it’ll feature the 40 best APEX LEGENDS teams in the world.

COUNTER-STRIKE

By early April, Counter-Strike fans are still following ESL Pro League Season XV, which just entered in its playoffs stage. However, in the coming weeks, the final qualification stage for the upcoming PGL Antwerp Major will be kicking off: the RMR events.

The first RMR tournament to start will the one for teams from North and South America. It’ll will kick off on the 11th, and six spots at the Major will be up for grabs there. Next, it’s going to be the Asia-Pacific RMR on the 15th, followed by two events for the European region, which will take place on the 17th and 21st.

Besides the qualifiers for the upcoming Major, there’s plenty to follow still. For example, BLAST will be hosting its BLAST Premier Spring Showdown events for both Americas and Europe on the 27th. ESEA will host various Cash Cups across the month, and ESL will return for its 41st season in Asia-Pacific, Europe and North America on April 26th.

HALO

Halo has already seen some action this month with the Open Championship regionals. Next in the schedule is the UGC Collegiate Spring League, which while smaller, still is an interesting circuit to keep an eye on if you’re a fan of Halo’s esports scene.

If you’re looking for the premier level of competition, it’ll take a while. The next major tournament in Halo’s schedule is the HCS 2022: Kansas City Major which will start on the 29th, and will run until May 1st. The team list is already filled, and the likes of Cloud9, OpTic, Acend and Natus Vincere will all be heading to the LAN event. $250.000 will be on the line.

LEAGUE OF LEGENDS

League of Legends just saw the end of an incredibly exciting Spring split, and the game will have a quieter month in April. This doesn’t mean that there won’t be any action happening. In fact, some of it has already started.

This week we saw the start of the Spring 2022 edition of the European Masters league. 28 teams from the region will be competing during the entire month until early May for €150,000. Beyond that, the Vietnam Championship Series will host its playoffs stage on the 16th, and the LCK Academy Series on the 23rd. Finally, for fans of the collegiate circuit in North America, the CLOL will be starting on the 23rd, too.

PUBG

PUBG esports scene continues in April

April will be a busy month for PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds. We’ve already seen the fifth season of the G-Loot, which ended with Northern Lights as the winners. As for what’s next on the schedule, on April 15th the sixth season of the PUBG Continental Series tournaments for the Americas and Asia-Pacific will be starting. Both events feature 16 teams and $250.000 in prize pool each. After that, it’ll be time for the South Korean AfreecaTV PUBG League 2022 Season 1, where 24 teams will be competing for ₩30,000,000.

Then, at the end of the month, the two next regions of the Continental Series will be kicking off. Asia and Europe will see their own PUBG CS editions starting on April 29th. Just like the previous two editions, each tournament will see 16 teams competing for a quarter of a million.

On the mobile side of PUBG’s esports scene, April has already seen the NEW STATE Mobile Mashup, an online event for North American teams. It featured 16 teams, and ended on March 3rd. Not many high tier events will be kicking in April, though, since the various regional leagues of the Mobile Pro League circuit are still going on.

RAINBOW SIX SIEGE

Rainbow Six esports continues in April

Rainbow Six Siege will have a quieter month, too. The game will see mostly regional leagues taking place in April as the May Major is on the horizon. Still, some of these leagues are actually very competitive, and certainly give fans plenty of content to follow until the highest level of competition returns to the stage.

For example, the Southeast Asian focused Operation League for Indonesia, Myanmar, Philippines and Singapore will be starting on the 16th with $15.000 up for grabs. Brazil’s Copa do Brasil 2022: Stage I will also be kicking off this month, on the 19th. Sixteen teams from the country will be competing for R$100.000, and some of the best Rainbow Six teams in the world will be playing then.

The next stage of Brazil’s home circuit will take place on the 23rd. Then, the Copa Brasil Six is set to start with eight teams. Four coming from the ongoing Brasileirão Stage 1, two from the Campeonato Mexicano Stage 1 and the final two from the Campeonato Sudamericano Stage 1. Finally, the Asia-Pacific League will kick off its playoff on the 20th.

April will see a break in the top tier level of competition in Rocket League. Yet, the action returns before the month ends with four Regional Events kicking off in the 29th. These being the APAC South, MENA, North America and Oceania regionals.

VALORANT

This month will be a major month for VALORANT. In the past few weeks, we saw the conclusion of VALORANT Champions Tour Challengers Stage.
