Finally A Big Tournament: Legends Masters Series at QuakeCon 2018

TES Legends is trying to make it’s way to ESport, and new effort is quite big. Qualifiers for the first Masters Series – featuring both offline and online events — will begin at the end of this month (June 30th) and culminate in Dallas, TX at QuakeCon 2018! Sixteen of the best Legends players in the world will convene at the Gaylord Texan Resort and Convention Center on August 9-10 to battle for their share of a whopping $50,000 prize pool.

Winning your seat at the first Masters event will be a straightforward process done through four qualifying tournaments. These two-day events will be held online over the next few weeks, open to all players, and will each award $1000 in cash to the top eight. An invite to the QuakeCon Legends tournament, complete with travel and accommodations, will be awarded to the top three finishers. Masters Points will also be up for grabs in these qualifiers. With twelve invites going to the top three in each of these qualifiers, the final spots at QuakeCon will be given to the four players who accumulate the most Masters Points throughout the season of qualifiers. The breakdown of prizes is as follows:
