Paladins is a team-based game, with teams of two going head-to-head in mortal combat. It is a highly competitive game and since its initiation into esports, Paladins esports has held several tournaments as a means for players to compete professionally. The different tournaments take place all year round and there are no set competitive seasons in which they occur.
Paladins esports generally takes place using Xbox and PlayStation as those are the two most popular devices for playing the game. The game is also available on Nintendo Switch and Microsoft Windows, but both are not used to play Paladins esports.
Some of the most popular competitive tournaments include Paladins Console Wars (which have taken place in the past and still do), the Paladins World Championship (particularly the one that took place in 2018) and Paladins Masters 2018.
