Paladins World Championship & Console Wars Format

Paladins World Championship & Console Wars Format

We’re coming up fast on the pinnacle event of the PPL and Console Wars circuit — the World Championship event at Hi-Rez Expo this January. In just over a month, the top teams will gather in Atlanta, GA to battle it out for that coveted championship trophy.


What’s in store for your favorite teams? You’ll have to tune in to find out! But for now, here are the brackets and tournament format for PPL and the Paladins Console Wars at HRX 2018.


Console Wars Format

  • Single Elimination Bracket
  • Four Teams
    • NA Xbox: Erased
    • NA PS4: Blight
    • EU Xbox: GankStars
    • EU PS4: Ghost 5



This tournament will follow a similar format to what you saw at Dreamhack Valencia. For those of you who weren’t there to witness the action, here’s how it works. On one side of the bracket, we’ll see the North American and EU PS4 teams square off — and on the other, we’ll see each region’s Xbox teams duke it out to determine our finalists. Then the Finals match will determine not only the superior region, but the superior console as well!
