HEX: Shards of Fate is set to take its free to play MMO/TCG to the esports scene as Gameforge and HEX Entertainment announced that they will be holding their first worldwide, official tournament sometime later this year. While no exact date has been announced yet, the teams did break down the basic outline for the tournament’s structure, the prizes available, and how you can qualify to take part.
The winners of the tournament will take home their share of a $100,000 prize should they prove that they have what it takes to knock out the competition. If you think you have the right stuff, all you need to do to qualify is register to play on the game’s site and earn 10 qualifying points by playing ranked duels. From there, 12 online qualifier tournaments will be held (free if you qualified) and finalists will battle it out for the cash prizes in Irvine, CA where HEX Entertainment is based. Time zones shouldn’t be an issue for these qualifiers as HEX Entertainment is spacing the matches out over a few weeks to accommodate all participants.
“HEX combines the classic realm of trading card games with the possibilities of the digital world like no other game,” said Carsten van Husen, Gameforge’s CEO. “The game promises challenging and exciting PvP duels with the regular release of card packs, and with this newly announced competition, we’re increasing the focus on competitive gaming, as well as reaching out our thanks to the community. HEX has arrived and it’s here to stay!”
Time to practice and see if I have a shot at the big bucks!
