Hearthstone UK Invitational
This week we have the first ever Heartstone UK invitational taking place. With the online tournament benig sponsored by Team Pro2Type for £50, we saw 4 invited players and 4 qualified players. The 4 invited players were as followed:
Joining the 4 invited players, Pro2Type opened up a EU qualifier where the Top 4 would join the 4 invited players. The format of the qualifier was:
- Single Elimination
- Best of 5
- Class elimination. Once you have lost a game with that class you can’t play another deck of that class during the set.
- Loser must change class. Winner must keep the deck they won with.
- Before you start your games you ban one of their classes then they ban one of your classes. Use www.classban.com with your opponent.
You can see the bracket below where these 4 players fought it out hard to qualify:
