Announcing the Paladins Path to Hi-Rez Expo 2018

Earlier this month, the Paladins Global Series kicked off around the world. Thanks to many of you, the Paladins esports scene is now more vibrant than ever before. We will soon award $35,000 in cash prizes for PGS play, as the top 8 teams in each region face off in the first Phase Finals.

We are pleased to announce that the Paladins Global Series will soon have even higher stakes. The PGS will become a path to the first ever Paladins World Championship at Hi-Rez Expo on January 4-7th, 2018, at the Cobb Energy Performing Arts Centre in Atlanta, Georgia! HRX is Hi-Rez’s biggest annual event featuring the very best teams from around the globe competing against each other for their share of our largest esports prize pools. With much more at stake than prizing heading into Phases 2 and 3 the competition will be closer than ever.
