The Paladins Gauntlet is nearly upon us, as teams in Europe and North America prepare to go head to head against their rivals to secure the final two seeds at the Paladins $150,000 Invitational at Hi-Rez Expo. Up until now, The Gauntlet would have marked the end of competitive Paladins until the Invitational at Hi-Rez Expo. But we felt that was just too long to wait, and we are thrilled to announce the Evie’s Winter Classic!
PaladinsWorld does not host the Evie’s Winter Classic. This post was originally posted on esports.paladins.com. Please check out that website or this post for more information.
This tournament will have no implications on the teams heading to HRX. Evie’s Winter Classic will serve to keep the competition sharp, and give the challenger scene teams a shot at some of the top dogs in the space between The Gauntlet and The Invitational at HRX.
