Paladins Global Series: The Complete Guide

Greetings Champions of the Realm! The time has come to answer our call to arms once again and compete in Season 2 of the Paladins Global Series beginning on February 3.

If this is the first time you’re hearing of the Paladins Global Series, you’ve been missing out on the biggest open-entry tournament series in history. This $350,000 tournament is open to all Paladins PC players from Southeast Asia, Russia, North America, Brazil, Latin America, Europe and Oceania.

Every week, you’ll get to play against some of the best teams in the world. If you’re good enough you could earn a free trip to compete for prize pools at live events. And even if you lose, you’ll take home some Crystals (and some great memories).

Please note this guide has been updated as of January 25, 2018 to reflect the changes coming with Season 2 of the Paladins Global Series.


How to Sign Up for the Paladins Global Series

Step 1: Find Your Team

Visit the Paladins Global Series Facebook Group if you need help finding a team!

Step 2: Register for Your Region’s Weekly Tournament

Team captains must check in to our official Paladins Global Series Discord channel one hour before their region’s scheduled start time (listed below). There, a check-in form will be posted for your team captain to fill out. Please make sure all information is entered correctly, and that the form is submitted completely.

After check-ins have closed, your team captain will be granted a role in Discord which will allow them to communicate with our tournament administrators for their respective region. Then, a bracket will be made showcasing every match to be played in that day’s tournament. (Please note all matches will be played at the scheduled times below, and every member of your team must stick around for the entire tournament or you will forfeit).

Step 3: Play & Win

Work your way through the bracket and prove you’re the best. The top 32 teams take home cash or Crystal prizing every week (detailed below)!
