over 3 years ago

We are super excited to share with you the next step in building our tournament ecosystem. The KARDS Open!

For this first iteration we have partnered up 983 Media off the back of their successful Operation KARDS tournament to bring you the first ever cash prize open tournament for KARDS.

This is a part of our ongoing effort to make sure that there are meaningful outlets of competitions available to our players where they can test their mettle and reap the rewards of all those hours of theorycrafting and practicing.

Without further ado here are the details for the upcoming KARDS Open #1:

The KARDS Open #1 will be played over on Battlefy and you can find the registration page and all further information here:

The tournament will be played over 2 weekends. The first weekend being the 25th and 26th of July and consisting of a Swiss Round and the finals weekend being the 1st and 2nd of August where players can stake their claim to the $1000 prize pool!

All action from the top 8 will be broadcast live on the KARDS Twitch channel on August 2nd at 14:45 UTC. So make sure to tune in and see all the action from the first ever KARDS open.
