Path of Exile Royale Showdown: How to watch, schedule, prizes, format and more

Path of Exile may not strike you as the most suitable game for the Twitch Rivals treatment but if we have learned anything in the last twelve months is that you people can enjoy anything when it involves throwing their favourite content creators against each other and with a tasty prize pool on offer.

The event will see 100 players battle it in what is reffered to as the "match point" format. Essentially after the first six games, the 1st placed team's points total will be used as the "match point". Any team that comes 1st in a subsequent game and has a higher total points total than the match point will win. This can continue for three more games, if no winner is decided the total points total across all ten games will be used.

The one-day event will have a $30,000 prize pool, with the winner taking home $4,000. There are also a number of cosmetics that players can win with the 1st place team winning six outfits.
