Tournament Structure

The Hearthstone Championship will consist of 4 stages Autumn, Winter and Spring tournaments followed by an end of year final. Each monthly tournament will consist of 4 weekly tournaments and end of month invitational.

Weekly Tournaments

Each week players will be asked to choose 3 classes at check in. All players who check in will be randomly seeded then play 4 Bo3 rounds of Conquest. We shall be using the Swiss tournament system to determine pairing so you will normally play against someone of approximately the same win record.

Monthly Invitational

This year for qualification monthly invitational will be based only on total match wins in the highest 3 finishes in weekly tournaments that month. This means players should be able to miss a week without being too disadvantaged.

The Invitational shall be using Bo5 conquest with registered decklists. The exact details of the Invitational will be based on attendance and will be announced after week 1. All players who qualify for the invitational will be awarded championship points used to qualify for end of year finals.

End-of-year Finals

The winners of each invitational as well as the top 13 players on championship points will be invited to the end of year finals. The end of year finals will ran in the same way as Blizzcon, four double-elimination groups followed by quarters, semis and the Grand Final.
