    Battle Hardened - Saturday October 7th

     

    The path to the biggest stage in Flesh and Blood TCG Organized Play begins with a Professional Tournament Invitation (PTI), and one of the best places to secure these prized assets is Battle Hardened.

    Players will have the opportunity to battle it out for their share of USD2,000 in cash prizes, exclusive Battle Hardened series playmats to the Top 8, a Gold Foil to the Champion, and coveted Professional Tournament Invites (PTIs) to both the winner and runner-up.

    PTIs can be used to enter any Professional level tournament (including Pro Tours and the World Championship) and do not expire, whereas invitations from the in-store ProQuest series are only valid for their associated Pro Tour event.

    After the last round of Swiss in Battle Hardened the day ends with a Super Armory. Normally, an Armory Kit is provided to stores to support a full month of in-store events, but at a Super Armory, the full contents of a kit are used for one single event, meaning that multiple players get prizes, instead of just the winner! The prizes for this event include Cold Foil Promos and official Flesh and Blood playmats.
