Blade & Soul fans attending PAX West this weekend have another reason to be excited for the convention. During the con, NCSoft will be holding North American Regional Championships in the PAX Arena. Matches will be running all day on September 3, with the finals kicking off around 6:30 p.m. Pacific.
Those who take the winner and runners up spots will be guaranteed slots in the Blade & Soul World Championships, where they will compete against 16 other teams from around the world. They will also earn a portion of a $340,000+ prize pool. The number may increase before the event as the funds are coming from fans who purchase a special in-game item.
Those unable to attend PAX will still be able to watch the event on the Blade & Soul Twitch channel as it is streamed live. (Like we would expect anything else.) For an official schedule and other information on the World Championships in Seoul, check out the official tournament page.
