How to Sign Up for the Paladins Global Series 

When you’re ready to sign up and compete in your respective region, only the team captain of your 5-man Siege group needs to join our official Paladins Global Series Discord channel: https://discord.gg/3p28ttW

One hour before your region’s scheduled play time, a check-in form will then be posted to the Discord channel for your team captain to fill out. Please make sure that all information is entered correctly, and that the form is submitting before proceeded to the next step of the process.

After your captain has submitted the form, they will be granted a role in Discord which will allow them to communicate with our tournament administrators for their respective region.

When check-ins have closed, a bracket will be made showcasing every match to be played. After a tournament administrator initiates the first round shortly after the scheduled play time, they will begin working through bracket matches until a winner is crowned victorious. Please note that all matches will be played at the scheduled times in this post, and every member of your team must stick around for the entirely of the tournament or you will forfeit.
