Tournament Details:

We will be running two different brackets, you can choose to enter either or both:

Open Bracket – A double elimination, best of three, bracket where any deck is allowed and both players can change decks between games.  Break out your best golden legendary cards or play a special constructed combo!

Basic Bracket – New to the game and look for a level playing field? This bracket will be a double elimination, best of three, bracket where players much choose a deck from the “Basic Decks” in Hearthstone.  Players can change decks between games, but all games must be played from the Basic Deck list.

Other Information:

This is the first event of this kind hosted by us, so things will be kept loose and simple.

We will have water available and may have other beverages and snacks, but no guarantees.

There may be an attempt to record and stream some of the games (in particular the finals) and by attending you agree you are okay with being filmed and/or photographed and that these videos and images may be used by the event royalty free.
