Recap: Battle Hardened Tokyo, Toulouse, and Milwaukee

13th Oct 2023 Kasharn Rao

It's been an incredible week for Flesh and Blood organised play, with Japan hosting its first ever Battle Hardened in Tokyo! It only took an hour for tickets to sell out, a testament to how quickly the game has picked up. France hosted an awesome event, with players rocking up to Toulouse for a little tir à l'arc! And another slam dunk from MinMaxGames in Milwaukee! Let's check out the winners from last weekend's triple threat...

Battle Hardened: Tokyo

Excitement for Japan's first ever Battle Hardened was overwhelming, with more than 120 players blitzing each other to pieces! Chane has truly surpassed his limits, cementing his place as the boogeyman of Blitz! Taking down Dorinthea in the finals is no easy task, but the hordes of the Demonastery have grown so powerful that Solana's days seem numbered...

Congratulations to Hiroshi Kanaya, and to the rest of our Top 8 competitors!
