It seems like just last month that Paladins hit 4 million players. Wait, it was. Hi-Rez used the opportunity to lavish a YouTube video on us and trumpet their first big tournament next month:


Next on the horizon is the culmination of the Paladins competitive scene where 8 teams from around the world will meet in Atlanta Georgia to participate in the Paladins Invitational Tournament at Hi-Rez Expo. These teams will be competing for the right to call themselves the best Paladins players in the world and to take home the winning share of $150,000.

Things kick off Thursday, Jan. 5, at 12:00 noon EST when 8 teams from around the world will be placed into 2 groups for group play. A second day of group play will follow at 12 noon EST on Friday, Jan. 6.  The top 2 teams from each group will advance to the Semi-Finals on Saturday, Jan. 7, with the Grand Finals starting at 10 a.m. EST on Sunday, Jan. 8.
