Third Time’s the Charm

Amsterdam, The Netherlands — March 7, 2024 | Following a triumphant second season of Eternal Return’s action-packed Challenger Series tournament, Nimble Neuron and Kakao Games are thrilled to share a sneak peek at the upcoming changes players can expect in Season 3 of the riveting esports tournament.

North American players eager to prove themselves as the ultimate survivor will be able to register for the latest Challenger Series tournament from March 20-26, with the circuit bracket due to be announced shortly after registrations close. A total of 16 teams will be battling it out, with the Circuit formed as teams are seeded through a snake draft into 4 blocks, each consisting of 4 teams.

A breakdown of team distribution

Each week, two blocks will merge to form two 8-team squad lobbies that will go head-to-head in 4 games. Team points will be allocated based on how teams place in these battles, so squadmates must rally together and put their best foot forward in order to maximise their chances of bagging big points.

The team that emerges victorious from each block will score a pass to the Grand Finals, while the teams placing second and third will have another opportunity to demonstrate their skills in the Wild Card rounds. The top 4 teams to secure a Wild Card win will then earn a place among the other victors in the gripping Grand Finals. 

The Grand Finals — taking place on April 21 — promises high-octane action Eternal Return fans won’t want to miss, as the best of the best fight it out for a helping of the $1000 prize pool, with heaps of in-game currency also up for grabs. Team’s will have to work hard and dominate their opponents to earn top prizes, with rewards also available to the runners-up, ensuring nobody walks away from Lumia Island empty handed.
