Some of the world’s best esports players of The Elder Scrolls: Legends and Quake Champions came together at QuakeCon 2018 in Dallas for the first-ever The Elder Scrolls: Legends Masters Series Finals and Quake Champions QuakeCon Open. In the QuakeCon Open the 2v2 teams competed for a $175,000 prize pool, plus the top eight 2v2 teams moved on to compete solo in Duels matchups for the chance at the winner-take-all $25,000 pot.
Elder Scrolls Masters Series
To kick off the weekend, The Elder Scrolls: Legends Masters Series pitted the top Legends players from across the globe against one another in the hopes of taking the lionshare of the $50,000 prize pool. In the grand finals, Plzdonhakme took an early 2-0 lead against Karakondzhul. Karakondzhul however had a few tricks up his sleeve, taking the next two games to bring the grand finals to an exciting game 5. In the end, Plzdonhakme was able to best Karakondzhul and take home the crown in the first-ever The Elder Scrolls: Legends Masters Series Championship.
