Hearthstone Esports: The Whole New Challenger

Hearthstone Esports

The Hearthstone Esports scene is a little different than other games. The World Championship is the culmination of all of the work throughout the year, and each new expansion means a refreshed meta and the Hearthstone Global Games, while it is only once a year, isn’t that important in the long run. We’ve seen major tournaments like HCT fall to the wayside, but it’s time to shine some light on what could be the next big thing for Hearthstone.

Blizzard recently announced their plans for Hearthstone Esports in 2018. To follow the release of the new Standard year, there will be a shortened cycle for Season 1 of this year, leading to an intense finish at Blizzcon in 2018. The $1 million USD prize pool remains the same as last year across all tournaments, giving players confidence in their abilities more opportunities to secure a high finish at a tournament.

 Blizzard has announced some changes for 2018, which will alter the current Hearthstone Esports landscape. The prize pool remains the same as last year, and there are fewer tournaments on the horizon; however all of these tournaments will lead to an exciting Blizzcon 2018 finish.

Details Regarding Hearthstone Esports:-

Today we’re announcing an exciting new endeavor called “Hearthstone Esports.” The way it’s going to work is that every month, there will be a major tournament for which players can sign up for. These tournaments are split into three divisions: Bronze, Silver, and Gold. The top 32 competitors from each division are invited back the next month, where they play for points rather than money. Players receive 3 points every time they finish in the top 4, 2 points for finishing 5-8 and one points for 9-16. At the end of a season, players are ranked based on how many points they’ve accumulated and given accordingly.

Rewards Given to Them:-

The winner of each month’s tournament receives $500 and is invited back next month to defend their title, while second place gets $100. The winner of each season will play in the Grand Finals at BlizzCon for $100,000.

This format is very similar to professional bowling. The top 16 players with the most points accumulated are invited back at the end of each month to meet with another set of players who got through with the highest points that month. After three months, where everyone has had a chance, we will determine our “Hearthstone Champions” like in any other game.

Before we go into full swing with this, we’d like to see just how successful it would be. If successful, there is a possibility that the second and third seasons will be $1,000 and $2,000 tournaments, respectively, with more entrants and players receiving points towards their season rankings.

New format added to Hearthstone Esports:-

With this new format, we’re going to see a lot of up-and-coming players as well as some old faces. HeroesHearth is going to be leading the way with their recent success in HCT tourneys and seem like a fitting place for any player wanting to look good. We’ve yet to touch on the topic of how exactly you would qualify for this event; whether it’s through a ladder or another tournament system is something we’re still discussing internally. We’ll be releasing the actual structure of the tournaments themselves in a week or so when we finalize all the details.

If you’ve ever wanted to compete on a big stage, now’s your chance. If you want to make your mark in Hearthstone history, now’s your chance. Whether you’re a fan of watching card games or playing yourself, “Hearthstone Esports” is the place to be every month.

The first tournament is next month, so there isn’t too much time to prepare. It’s open to anyone who wants to participate, though, so be sure to report it if you see one popping up near you. This is uncharted territory for Hearthstone, so let’s see if it gets traction!
