Hearthstone is Blizzards online card game based on Warcraft lore. The game is currently in Open Beta, so for those that want to give it a try, start downloading here. Friendly warning though, if you enjoy trading card games like Magic: The Gathering, I assure you. You will get hooked.
The format and rules are similar to the tournament formats in other countries. Hearthstone is getting a lot of attention with offline and online tournaments taking place in other parts of the globe. Pretty impressive since this game is still in development. It's great to see Imperium taking the initiative by giving Hearthstone players over here the chance to compete in a competitive level and hopefully build a community here.
We'll update this page if there are changes in the tournament format. If you have any questions regarding the tournament, you can reach Imperium at their Facebook page. The crew will be attending(And hopefully competing) this event so hope to see you all there on February 8!
