LOS ANGELES–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Intense side-scrolling action MOBA Hyper

participate in the Preseason, and a player’s record will not count until
Season 1 begins.

Joining the roster during the Ranked Mode Preseason is all-new Hyper,

    ladder, featuring Rookie, Bronze, Silver, Gold, Platinum, Diamond,
    Master and Grandmaster ranks. At the end of each season the rankings
