CEO 2022: Schedule, brackets, prize pool, games & where to watch

Some big fights are about to go down as CEO 2022 kicks off this weekend. Check out all of the details including where to catch the action here.

The time has come once more for one of Alex Jebailey and CEO Gaming’s biggest events of the whole year. CEO 2022 is set to take place and with it comes a massive array of fighting game tournaments. You’re not going to want to miss any of the action, but if you don’t know where to look for it, we’ve got you covered. All of the details, including prize breakdown, brackets, the included games and where to watch the competition can be found here.

CEO 2022 Prize Pools

Tournaments have once again come through in a big way at CEO 2022. The prize pools for most events were categorized by entrants with tournaments under 64 competitors paying out to the top 3 while any game with over 64 competitors pay out to the Top 8. This doesn’t include pot bonuses or further prizing if the tournament goes over 256 entrants (which many did). Here’s the breakdown of less-than-64 player tournaments:

  • 1st Place – 60%
  • 2nd Place – 25%
  • 3rd Place – 15%

And for 64+ player tournaments:

  • 1st Place – 50%
  • 2nd Place – 20%
  • 3rd Place – 13%
  • 4th Place – 7%
  • 5th Place (tie) – 3%
  • 7th Place (tie) – 2%
