|San Francisco, USA — March 25th, 2021 — Independent developer Rhino Games last weekend held the first tournament of the year for their free-to-play competitive collectible card game Mythgard. As the first of six live-streamed Open Qualifiers for the 2021 Mythgard Competitive Season, competitors brawled in a Swiss tournament, with the top 8 battling it out live on Twitch this Saturday, in an attempt to win the $1,000 prize pool, alongside in-game coins and mythril.
The 2021 Mythgard Competitive Season comprises six ranked ladder seasons and six qualification tournaments, which run on a bi-monthly basis. To compete, competitors must progress to Silver rank or above on the in game ladder. When the competitive season finishes in December 2021, the top 16 players will compete for $20,000 in a prestigious tournament, fighting for the grand title of Mythgard World Champion.
“We are so excited to kick off our 2021 Mythgard Competitive Season with this first tournament!” said Peter Hu, Co-founder of Rhino Games. “We created Mythgard with the competitive scene in mind, and are blown away by the positive response to this weekend’s tournament. Jump on the ladder and join us for our next Open Qualifier in May!”
