Hi-Rez Expo $50,000 Founder's Tournament

August 3, 2017

Hi-Rez Studios is proud to announce the Hand of the Gods $50,000 Founder’s Tournament to be held at Hi-Rez Expo 2018!

While Hand of the Gods has only just entered Open Beta, we at Hi-Rez Studios are very serious about esports. The future is bright for Hand of the Gods as an esport, just like SMITE and Paladins.

This Founder’s Tournament is the perfect way to reward our early adopters for helping us to shape Hand of the Gods, and to grow our competitive scene.

How to Qualify

Eight players will qualify for the Hand of the Gods Founder’s Tournament, via eight qualifying events to be held this fall. The qualifying events will be a mix of Open Bracket LANs held at various gaming conventions and online qualifiers open to the entire world. Further details on the 8 qualifying events will be released soon.

Eight more players will qualify for the Hand of the Gods Founder’s Tournament through the Hi-Rez Expo Open tournament, open to all Hi-Rez Expo 2018 attendees. That’s right: You could play in the Founder’s Tournament, just by purchasing a ticket to HRX!

Hi-Rez Expo Open

The Open Bracket Tournament at DreamHack Valencia was a huge success, and we want to bring that same success right to all of our fans at Hi-Rez Expo 2018. All event attendees can register and play in the HRX Open Bracket. From there, the top 8 from the HRX Open will face off against the 8 pre-qualified players to determine our Founder’s Tournament Champion. Pre-registration for the Open Bracket will be available at a later date closer to the event.

TLDR: All you need is a Hi-Rez Expo ticket for your shot at the $50,000 Prize Pool!
