Just a few weeks ago, we wrapped up the first season of the Paladins Premier League with an action-packed weekend of matches in the Paladins World Championship. Natus Vincere took the championship title, and set the standard for winning teams moving forward into the 2018 season.
Prospective teams for Season 2 are changing up their rosters and preparing for the return of the Paladins Premier League this Spring. Today, we’re excited to announce all the details you need to know about the upcoming Spring Split for the PPL.
Currently we’re in the off-season for the PPL, where free agent pro players can put together teams and begin negotiating contracts with the organizations they want to represent. This free agency period will end on March 5, 2018.
