The PvP Championship represents our most ambitious foray into competitive combat so far.
Join us as we seek to establish just who is at the pinnacle of player-versus-player combat.
The weekend of 12th/13th August will play host to three bracketed tournaments: 1v1, 5v5, 20v20.
The PvP Championship will see the best pkers in the game go head to head over the course of the entire weekend in pursuit of a total prize of $30,000 shared across three competitions. The PvP Championship is an invitational tournament in which 32 individual players will compete for the 1v1 title, sixteen teams will battle it out to be named champions of the 5v5 arena, and eight teams will clash to be crowned winners of the 20v20 bracket.
Join the fray on twitch.tv/runescape from 4pm UTC / 12pm EST on both Saturday 12th and Sunday 13th August.
