It’s been awhile since we’ve watched some competitive HearthStone action at DreamHack, lucky for us, the game will be making it’s return to DreamHack, starting this Summer in Jonkoping, Sweden, as apart of DreamHack Summer 2015.
Along with it’s return to the DreamHack circuit, comes a brand new format. The HearthStone tournament will feature an open, non-elimination swiss system format, which will be followed by an elimination stage. $40k will be up for grabs in prize money, so you all had better be practicing those skills, and praying to the RNG Gods! This new, non-invitational format, will enable an open opportunity for newcomers to come out and compete and have their shot at rising to the top!
The tournament will be taking place from June 13-15th, with the first two days being Swiss play. You can check out the further format details for the tournament down below, and even more information by visiting the official announcement.
