ATLANTA, Ga., November 7 - The Brawlhalla World Championship and Expo kicks off Nov. 11, where the best Brawlhalla players across the globe will meet in Atlanta to fight for their share of $50,000.

 

The Brawlhalla World Championship is the culmination of 21 weeks of online tournaments known as the Brawlhalla Championship Series. The BCS was a multi-format, multi-region series of tournaments that distinguished top competitors and fan favorites within Brawlhalla’s ongoing online tournament scene. Over $30,000 in prize money has been awarded to Brawlhalla players since organized competition for the game began.

 

The Brawlhalla World Championship is a three day event with open-entry 1v1 and 2v2 World Championship Tournaments and a combined prize pool of over $50,000. In addition the event will also feature talks, mini-tournaments, prizes, swag, hang-outs, devs, cosplay, cupcakes, top players, streamers, and more.

 

Starting earlier this year, several eSports organizations have sponsored top Brawlhalla players around the world. Professional Brawlhalla players include:

 

  • Twlight of 3sUP Enterprises
  • Arkosh, and Jellyfish of Absolute
  • Diakou of Eanix
  • noeL, BloodDiamond, and LegitPunisher of Kingdom eSports
  • Ephi, Lanz, and Addymestic of Reason Gaming
  • KylarAlice of Trident eSports
  • Crockie of VexX Gaming
 

“We designed Brawlhalla to support competitive play,” said Matt Woomer, creative director at Blue Mammoth. “But one day you look up and there are tournaments streaming every weekend, videos coming out of high level play, LAN tournaments, FGC tournaments, prize money, clans, and even sponsors. So we asked ourselves and the community, ‘What can we do to support and encourage all that effort?’ The Brawlhalla Championship Series and the Brawlhalla World Championship is a big part of the answer.”

 

The Brawlhalla World Championship will be streamed live, Nov. 12-13, on the official Brawlhalla Twitch channel. A full schedule of the event can be found at bcx.brawlhalla.com.
