The Hearthstone Championship Tour comes to its grand conclusion this Friday as 8 of the best players from North America battle it out for their share of the massive $100,000 prize pool! The tournament will be broadcast live from Blizzard’s studio in Hollywood, California beginning March 11th, 2016 at 10:00 AM PST. The winner of each of the region’s Winter Championship will automatically punch their ticket to the Blizzcon Global Finals and take home $25,000 while the second place participant will receive $15,000 and 20 Hearthstone World Championship points. The third and fourth place participants will each receive $10,000 and 15 Hearthstone World Championship points. The format will be Conquest with 1 ban.

Good luck to all the players, it’s going to be a great tournament! Make sure to tune in to the official Hearthstone Twitch channel on Friday at 10AM PST to catch all the action as well as a mysterious Hearthstone announcement from Blizzard! We can only hope they’re going to announce the next expansion, or at least the release date of wild/standard format and more deck slots!
