Hello!

Funcom and Stunlock Studios will host a Bloodline Champions Tournament at the Carolina Games Summit this year. Bloodline Champions is a new and exciting free-to-play arena PvP game. Its introduction in this years’ Carolina Games Summit is one of the few debuts on North American soil and encourages all upcoming competitive PvP’ers to show off their skills!

As the game has just released only a couple weeks ago, majority, if not all players in the tournament, will be new to the game. We encourage any and all competitive PvP players to join up and let us know what you think about the game on top of winning great prizes.

We will be conducting a team 3v3 double-elimination tournament that will be scheduled at 3pm on Saturday. If you are interested in joining but would like to try the game first, then please visit http://www.bloodlinechampions.com/ to play for free. In addition, we will have a open room from 11am until the tournament kicks off for free gameplay and team practice for anyone and everyone!

If you do not have a team, but are willing to form a team with others just like you, then please notify us one (1) hour before tournament play begins. We will also help randomize players together in order to join the tournament and compete for the big prizes.

    Will there be restrictions on what bloodlines are allowed or are we using our own personal accounts with unlocked characters?

    Not at all. We will have accounts for everyone else that will contain the same unlocks. The only difference is that you may have a different skin or weapon than those accounts. Which, as you know does not factor into any additional gain outside of just looking cooler.

    However, we may just lock you to our own accounts for the event unless it's an issue.

    The only reason I say this is because the game has only been out for a few weeks and my team mates and I have little experience with all the bloodlines. If you had someone come in that happened to have purchased the titan pack and has potentially better bloodlines then it might be unfair for those that don't have access to that content.

    I would have to check into it, but I don't suspect so. That way everyone is well, balanced on the same hardware. But, bring it anyways and we will see.
