Format & Qualifier Information[edit]

  • Hearthstone World Championships at BlizzCon Tournament Format
    • The World Championships will be played in a best-of-five “Last Hero Standing” format, with 3 classes per player each match. In a “Last Hero Standing” format, when you lose a game, you must change the deck you are currently playing.

    • Participants must have their own card collections.
    • Sixteen total players will participate in the World Championships: 4 representatives from Americas, 4 from Europe, 4 from China, 2 from Korea, and 2 from Taiwan.
