ANNOUNCING: The $100,000 Paladins Founder's Tournament
With the next Paladins patch, we are releasing an early version of Constructed Mode for Paladins. While we know there will be many adjustments made to this mode throughout the beta, this begins our iterative process of forming the “Competitive Framework” for the game.
At Hi-Rez, we are very serious about esports, and we feel Paladins has strong potential to become a great competitive game. Doing so, however, will require “early adopters” to come into the scene to help us shape and grow the competitive gameplay. (NOTE: If you haven’t read our Beta Expectations Thread -- it will help you understand our iterative way of developing games quickly with community feedback!).
In order to encourage and reward the players and teams that come on board to Paladins early, we are announcing today the Paladins $100,000 Founder’s Tournament.
We will share more details about this tournament in early January. But, for now, here are the key things you need to know:
- The Founder’s Tournament will be held in the early Spring on LAN at the Hi-Rez eSports Arena in Atlanta.
- We will select 4 teams to attend the tournament based on a series of online qualification events. Two teams from North America and two teams from Europe will qualify for LAN.
- Room and board in Atlanta will be paid by Hi-Rez for the qualifying teams.
In addition, in January, we will start holding regular online tournaments with small cash prizes (similar to how we started the Smite competitive scene back in 2012/2013).
For us, this tournament is a starting point, not an ending point.
The game still has a ways to grow and improve through the beta process. This is our signal to competitive gamers, "‘We need your help to grow Paladins as an esport!’. Come join us in the Realm!”
