The Elder Scrolls: Legends Masters Series is Back!

The Masters Series is the highest level of competition in The Elder Scrolls: Legends and we’re incredibly excited to bring it back to QuakeCon 2019! Eight of the best Legends players in the world will convene July 26, 2019 to battle for their share of a $50,000 prize pool broken down as follows:

  • 1st Place: $20,000
  • 2nd Place: $10,000
  • 3rd-4th Place: $6,000
  • 5th-8th Place: $2,000

The best part? All of our qualifiers are free to enter and open to everyone so if you play your cards right, we could see you on the big stage!

Journey to the Masters

As with last year, we’ll have four single-elimination qualifiers which will take place on the following dates:

  • May 11 - 12
  • May 18 -19
  • May 25 - 26
  • June 1 - 2

Play will commence at 12pm EDT on Saturday and end right before the round-of-eight. The final eight players will return at 12pm EDT on Sunday to play out their matches in a live broadcast on twitch.tv/TESLegends. These events will each have a $1,000 prize pool split among the top eight and the first-place finisher will receive a direct invite, flight and accommodations for our Masters Series finals at QuakeCon 2019! However, as last year’s competitors are sure to remember, that’s not all that’s up for grabs…

Masters Points will also be awarded to the top 32 finishers based on their placements! After the four open qualifiers, the top two players with the highest Masters Points totals who haven’t already qualified will also receive direct invites to the Masters Series finals!

Qualifier Prize Pool Breakdown:

  • 1st Place: $400, Invite + Travel to the Masters Series at QuakeCon
  • 2nd Place: $200, 10 Masters Points
  • 3rd-4th Place: $100, 7 Masters Points
  • 5th-8th Place: $50, 5 Masters Points
  • 9th-16th Place: 2 Masters Points
  • 17th-32nd Place: 1 Masters Point

That brings us up to six qualified players. Who will the last two be? That will be determined by our new Last Chance Qualifier, a single-elimination event held on June 23 that will feature the 3rd-10th highest Masters Points earners! The top two players from the LCQ will also be punching their tickets to QuakeCon, so performing well over the course of the season is very important.

All qualifiers, the LCQ and the finals itself will be played using a best-of-five Last Class Standing format. Details on how this format works, as well as the full rulesheet and sign-ups for the qualifiers, can all be found on the Battlefy tournament page. Sign-ups are now open and will remain open until the tournament check-in time, which is an hour before each qualifier starts. Dust off your best decks, start preparing and we might see you this Summer at QuakeCon!

Additionally, we’re partnering with Team Rankstar for the qualifiers! They’ll be running the live-streamed broadcast on Twitch for the four open qualifiers as well as the Last Chance Qualifier, and we’re thrilled to work with their talented team to bring you all the action live.
