2017 Summoners War World Arena Championship registration now open for Europe finals to be held on October 7, 2017 in Paris
The European finals for the 2017 Summoners War World Arena Championship will be held on October 7, 2017 in Paris. Players can now go to www.summonerswar.com and sign up for the event. Sign-ups close September 14 and participants will then be selected based on their ranking in Summoners War’s in-game World Arena.
A total of 16 players will be invited to play at Le Comedia, a theatre and cinema in central Paris, to play live in front of an audience. Games will also be streamed in different European languages, and players will compete for a total prize pool of $5.000 USD, limited edition figurines and two tickets to the grand final in the United States in November.
The Paris tournament is one of nine regional preliminaries to prepare for the U. S. grand final in November. Other tournaments will take place in Seoul, Hongkong, Bangkok, Tokyo and Los Angeles. Players from the Middle East, Latin America and Australia can qualify through an online-tournament. The total prize pool for this tournament series will be USD $100,000, with $50,000 of that prize amount to be won at the World Finals in the United States in November 2017.
Com2uS will fly in the participants to each regional final, and cover all travel expenses.
The venue for the European tournament will be Le Comedia, a theatre and cinema in the heart of Paris. Fans can attend the event for free, but registration is required as seats are limited. Details for schedule and registration will be announced together with the names of the 16 tournament participants. For those unable to attend the event in Paris, there will be live-streams in English, German, French, Russian and Italian.
Participants as well as users who signed up for the tournament will be given a small gift as a show of gratitude, while regional champions will win prize money, a rare figurine and a trip to the world finals in the United States.
