This Friday, the Pro Tour series sees its first event in Flesh and Blood history, marking a monumental introduction to our highest tier of competitive play. Players from around the world have cashed in ProQuest invites (PQIs), Professional Tournament Invitations (PTIs), and XP-based invites to compete in this landmark event, and fight to become the first-ever Flesh and Blood Pro Tour Champion!
For players who didn't qualify for the main event, the weekend will also feature a Calling and a Battle Hardened; a chance for players to test their skills, and earn PTI's for future invite-only events. Check out the full side event schedule here.
As of the time this article goes live, over 1000 players have already registered for events across the weekend, and the last remaining seats are going quickly! Tickets are currently still available, but a number of spots are being reserved for Pro Tour players who wish to compete in the Calling on Saturday if they don't make the day two cut. On Saturday morning, any leftover tickets will be available as door sales, but these are not guaranteed, so we suggest that if you're planning on coming that you get your ticket package now at https://www.fabevents.gg/pro-tour-1.
The Pro Tour players banquet is on Thursday night, with priority access for Pro Tour competitors until 6pm. After this time, doors will open to all players. However, due to the limited allocated space for this event, the number of people allowed in will be very limited. Once the area for the player's banquet has reached full capacity, the doors will be closed and no additional players will be allowed to enter, so this will be strictly on a first-come, first-serve basis.
