2018 was a great year for Hearthstone esports, and along the way we’ve gathered feedback from players and viewers. Now, we’re excited to share a preview of our plan for continuing to make Hearthstone esports the best it can be for fans and competitors alike.
The Hearthstone Championship Tour (HCT) as we know it will go out with a bang this coming spring with the HCT World Championship, where the best Hearthstone players in the world will duke it out for $1,000,000 USD in prizes.
After the World Championship, a new three-tiered competitive system will begin in earnest—consisting of qualifiers, live global tournaments, and an exclusive top tier—with loads more prize money up for grabs. For an in-depth rundown of all the changes, check out our Hearthstone Esports’ Next Big Turn blog post.
