We’re still not quite sure when Crowfall will be making its official launch, but the fact that the game feels fit enough to showcase itself in a PvP tournament seems to suggest that it’s probably close. That’s right, ArtCraft’s throne war MMO will be hosting the 2021 Eternal Champions Series, a 10 event-long PvP tournament that will see 12 teams of 5 compete in the Hunger Dome game mode for a bevy of impressive prizes including $25K and gear from Alienware and Razer.
The tournament was first announced during a Razer Store Live broadcast by creative director J. Todd Coleman, who talked up the event and the game. The broadcast also announced a closed beta key giveaway for the game, granting players access to the game until May 9th as well as a Razer-branded Sigil that provides a bonus stat.
As for the Eternal Champions series, the tournament already has its schedule loaded, with six qualifying rounds, three wild card rounds, and one grand final all running through the month of May. Each event will be broadcast live on Twitch at 3:00 p.m. EDT. Furthermore, the event is an open invitation contest, with team sign-ups set to begin starting on April 13th.
Of course, if you’re not really interested in all this esports stuff, the April ACE Q&A broadcast also recently premiered, which talked up the tournament as well as the game’s recent publish, which re-introduces factories that lets players create copies of a template item (with some caveats like the template item taking a durability hit with each copy), and some import/export changes such as the addition of an equippables only rule and making export tokens a limited number guild reward.
