It’s not just money and pride. The top 32 players from the Americas, Europe, and Asia-Pacific that haven’t received invites get one for Masters Tour 3.

While waiting for the Masters Tour to start, keep a close watch on an announcement dropping tomorrow. The development team is going to offer details of the game’s first expansion. There are three expansions planned to be released this year. The team is also giving everyone a peek at what’s being planned for the game this year.

By the way, once the tournament ends, there’s more to look forward to like Lobby Legends: Raid Leaders. This is the first Battlegrounds event to be held this year. It’s going to be from April 2 to April 3.
