North American PVP Results

This past weekend (August 3-4), we hosted our first Regional Qualifying Tournament in North America, where PvP teams from across the continent competed for a spot in the Invitational Tournament. We’re happy to announce that Lack of a Scrim Feature [SYNC] has secured their place in our first ever Guild Wars 2 Invitational Tournament which takes place during PAX Prime weekend (August 31) in Seattle, WA. We’d like to thank all teams for their participation in the tournament.

Congratulations, team Lack of a Scrim Feature [SYNC]—we’ll see you in Seattle!

European PVP Results

On July 27 and 28, we watched our European community compete in the first Regional Qualifying Tournament. Through a lot of teamwork and discipline, Team Paradigm  faced off against Car Crash in a fight to secure their place in our first-ever Guild Wars 2 Invitational Tournament during PAX Prime weekend (August 31) in Seattle, WA.

While Team Paradigm won the day, a member of the team was unable to provide proof of residency in an eligible country. This means that Team Paradigm was not fielding a legal team of five players when qualifying. As a result, the second-place team, Car Crash, will be coming to theGuild Wars 2 Invitational Tournament as the representative from the European Qualifying Tournament. We’d like to thank all the teams that participated.

Congratulations, Car Crash – we’ll see you in Seattle!
