We are excited to inform you that the 2021 For Honor Dominion Series, our official competitive program where players compete in the 4v4 game-mode Dominion, begins on May 1st, with a total prize pool of $65,000!
The format for 2021 will be different from the previous year. All information such as how to sign up, official rules, prize breakdowns, and more will be on the battlefy website, which will be up and ready for you starting April 16th.
The Dominion Series 2021 will feature a circuit that will run throughout the entire year, starting from Year 5 Season 1 to Year 5 Season 4. Each season will be considered a “Stage”, with a total of 4 stages in the program.
The Dominion Series is currently online-only and region-locked, for NA and EU players who are at least 18 years of age. Registration will open on April 16th.
The first 3 Stages are made up of 4 Qualifiers tournaments and 1 Major tournament each. For every event, players can win points by placing high enough. At the end of this year, top teams in each region will be invited to the Finals in Stage 4, or Y5S4.
These are online tournaments that are open to everyone (unlimited teams). Each season in Year 5 will have 4 qualifiers, excluding Y5S4. The format will be double elimination brackets, with each match a Best-of-3. In each Qualifier, the top 4 teams will receive points based on placement, and in addition, the first-place team will be invited to the closed Major.
If you win a Qualifier tournament, you will not be able to participate in the remaining Qualifier tournaments within that season.
