Power Rangers: Battle for the Grid Launches Nationwide Esports League
Some exciting news from the world of fighting games, specifically for nWay’s Power Rangers: Battle for the Grid. A game that, while it had an extremely rough start, has grown and evolved into one of the best and most fun fighting games on the market available today.
As part of this immense growth in quality and popularity, nWay has partnered with Lionsgate and Hasbro to form the Power Rangers: Battle for the Grid League. Players will be able to participate in offline and online tournaments acquiring “Grid Points” in sanctioned, community-organized events in multiple states with additional prizes to be awarded to the winners as well. Another part of the League will be “Episodes”, which are in-game challenges where players can compete in matches and earn medals to climb the leaderboard ranks.
The seven players at the end of the season with the highest amount of Grid Points, in addition to the winner of a Last Chance Qualifier tournament, will be invited to battle it out for the title of League Champion at the series finale at Evolution 2020 in Las Vegas in August. The following fighting game majors will all be stops for the League:
Frosty Faustings on January 17th-18th in Chicago, Illinois
Final Round on March 20th-22nd in Atlanta, Georgia
NorCal Regionals on April 10th-12th in San Jose, California

ComboBreaker on May 23rd-25th in Chicago, Illinois
CEO Gaming on June 26th-28th in Orlando, Florida
and lastly at Evolution 2020 on July 31st – August 1st in Las Vegas, Nevada
Players can now register for the first event at Frosty Faustings this weekend here. Players can also check out the Battle for the Grid League website here which will be updated with more information as it becomes available including details, dates, and locations for the online tournaments and local events.
It is an exciting time to be a Power Ranger and fighting game fan as the Battle for the Grid League is the perfect cherry on top of this once struggling game’s rise to prominence.
