2013 Innkeeper's Invitational
The Innkeeper's Invitational is a professional Hearthstone tournament hosted by Blizzard as part of Blizzcon.
The Invitational features some of Hearthstone's most dedicated, passionate and well-known players, selected by Blizzard. These players duel each other in a best-of-five arrangement, until one player is left victorious. The winner is crowned "Grandmaster of the Hearth" and receives "a fitting trophy".
The first official Hearthstone tournament, the 2013 Invitational was notable for taking place before Hearthstone's release, in fact during the game's closed beta phase. The following year the Hearthstone World Championship was announced, succeeding the Innkeeper's Invitational as the official tournament.
