Pro Tour Lille

Legend Story Studios is delighted to announce the details of Pro Tour Lille!

To the Flesh and Blood community across Europe, the UK, and the rest of the world, we extend a warm welcome to join us in the northern French city of Lille, August 26-28 for a Pro Tour weekend that includes events and experiences for everyone!

Pro Tour Lille weekend will feature the prestigious Pro Tour, as well as open entry Calling and Battle Hardened events, a substantial public event schedule, and the opportunity to meet iconic artists and special guests... and of course Pro Tour commemorative items available to everyone who makes it to Lille!

For the first time, the Pro Tour main event will feature a hybrid format of Classic Constructed and Uprising Draft - challenging competitors to show their mastery of Flesh and Blood across multiple dimensions of the game.

Fans not competing in the Pro Tour main event will also have the chance to test themselves in these formats, with the Calling Lille featuring Classic Constructed, and Battle Hardened Lille featuring Uprising Draft (swiss rounds and top 8).

The Pro Tour main event features a $100,000 USD prize pool, with Top 32 players receiving Professional Tournament Invitations (PTI). In combination with the Calling and Battle Hardened events, this means a total of $122,000 in prizes, and 42 PTI's. This isn't an event you want to miss.
