Hand of the Gods Open Bracket Begins Tomorrow

January 3, 2018

Hi-Rez Expo 2018 has begun, and event attendees will be able to register and compete for $50,000 in Hand of the Gods starting tomorrow!

The 64-Man Open Bracket will take place across two days – Thursday, January 4th and Friday, January 5th. 32 players will compete each day in five rounds of Swiss tournament play, with the top 4 qualifying for the $50,000 Founder’s Tournament.

Tournament registration is open to all event attendees, and can be found outside the Hi-Rez Expo Stage.  Players who pre-registered earlier this month are guaranteed a spot in the tournament, and only need to select the day they wish to compete at the registration desk.
