CONSOLE WARS: STDX ENTERS PALADINS
Last fall in September Hi-Rez Studios released their multiplayer shooter, Paladins: Champions of the Realm, as an open beta. You’re able to play as various characters in a variety of roles. Siege, Payload, Co-Op and Survival make up the game modes within the game. Competitive game mode is unlocked when a player has twelves champions over Mastery level four. Though competitive only consists of Siege mode, a best of five format, players choose their champions at the start and alternative between players on each team to choose. Paladins has attracted the attention of over 800,000 downloads on Steam and has been ranked in the top ten most popular games via Steam users.
Jumping into eSports, Paladins has already gained a huge competitive base. The game spans across PC, Playstation 4 and Xbox. However, the competition is split into two different categories. Dreamhack PC is an ongoing summer event where teams of five will pit it out against one another for a share of a money based prize. Playstation and Xbox competition is known as Console Wars. Qualifiers consist of teams of five competing once a week, for six weeks, for a money prize. Both competitions allow teams to gain points based on their placing. Competitors on all platforms are fighting to keep the highest ranking so they can have a spot at Dreamhack: Valencia.
