2017 is now coming to a close and the snowy dust is beginning to settle as esports goes on its brief holiday break.
Since the League of Legends season concluded in China at Worlds and BlizzCon marked the end of the Heroes of the Storm season, our teams continued to march on through November and December. Some reaching new heights, some preparing for a new year by returning to former heights.
One of our newest teams, Fnatic Paladins, attended the PPL Offline Finals in Atlanta, Georgia in the middle of November. Having gone through the EU PPL as by far the best team in Europe, we went to the offline qualifier confident of making it to Hi-Rez Expo.
Despite losing to Na’Vi in the main tournament, a win over Renegades in the Wildcard tournament booked our place to the inaugural Paladins World Championship on 4th January.
