Recap: Battle Hardened Vancouver

10th Nov 2023 Kasharn Rao

More than 70 players rocked up to Vancouver in Canada last weekend to try their hand at becoming a Battle Hardened Champion, with a PTI, Gold Foil, exclusive playmats, and $2,000 USD Travel Reimbursement up for grabs!

One of Lexi's last rides, players loaded Voltaire with arrows as they set their eyes of the prize, while old school heroes from Welcome to Rathe waited in the wings for an opportunity to steal the limelight.

Players took to the bustling streets of Metrix on Sunday in the PTI Event, drafting the latest set Bright Lights to their Teklo Foundry Heart's desire!


Battle Hardened

Lexi was determined to make one last ice-tipped mark on the metagame before her departure, taking out a solid three spots in the top cut. Three out of four classic heroes also managed to sneak over the line (poor Rhinar - always the black sheep of the Welcome to Rathe family). The Lord of Wind took a stab at taking first place from the Elemental Ranger but was pinned down by an onslaught of arrows.

Congratulations to Julian Felix Flury, and to the rest of our Top 8 competitors!
