$100,000 in tournament prize pools
During the Alpha launch, tournaments are free-to-enter and and players can earn money by competing in our Battlezone series. Over the course of Alpha, we will be giving out a total of $100,000 in prizes!
For our Battlezone series, players can qualify during the week by playing in tournaments and winning brawls. Qualifying tournaments run from Thursday AM PST to Monday 4PM PST. On Monday evenings (PST), after the last qualifier has finished, qualifying players are able to enter tournaments that have real prize pools on Tuesday and Wednesday.
