Beyond, ASTRO Gaming, and The Coalition are teaming up to power a brand new online tournament series. Introducing ASTRO Battles – the official competitive 2v2 league for Gears 5! ASTRO Battles will allow Gears duos to compete online, win cash prizes, and improve their seeding with the goal to compete at official Gears Esports Majors.
Alongside the official Pro League, the ASTRO Battles series will offer up-and-coming amateur players a unique chance to break out in the Gears Esports scene. Read below for details on the seasonal structure, event dates, and tournament registration!
SERIES OVERVIEW
Image module
ASTRO Battles is a free-to-enter online series for North American competitors. Tournaments will kick off in January and will be played on the official Gears 5 2v2 mode, releasing soon. The ASTRO Battles online series will feature $20,000+ in prizing, with a minimum of $1,000 for each online qualifier.
Each tournament will also reward seasonal points to players based on their team’s placement in each bracket. These points will not only determine seeding for future qualifiers, but will also contribute to seeding for the official 2v2 open brackets at Gears Esports Majors.
Additionally, the team with the highest point total from each season will receive an ASTRO Care Package and will be flown out to compete in the official 2v2 at the next Gears Esports Major. Beyond will also host an open arcade-style ‘winner stays on’ competition at the ASTRO Gaming booths for Major attendees to compete, win prizes, and earn bonus points for the next online season.
