Paladins Oceania Invitational League

After a big open beta release, Hi-Rez Studios is pleased to continue global support for our new team arena shooter Paladins – including launching a debut league in Australia and New Zealand! We’ve completed a round of qualifier tournaments, and now we begin the invitational round robin.

The event began Monday night, October 10, at 7pm, Australian time. The Oceania Invitational League will determine the Oceania team who represents the region, competing in the USD$150,000 Paladins Invitational in January 2017.

Broadcast live on, the five week league will determine Oceania’s Paladins finalists, with the top two teams from the league playing off in a live final at the Hi-Rez Oceania Championship, this November 26 to 27.  

Pathway to the Paladins Invitational at Hi-Rez Expo

The winning team will then be sent to the USA , competing in the US $150,000 Paladins Invitational on the global stage at Hi-Rez Expo.
