Tavern Hero Qualifier Hearthstone Fireside Gathering & Tournament
April’s Tournament will be a Tavern Hero Qualifier! What does this mean? If you win our tourney, you’ll be entered into the Tavern Hero Tournament.
Fireside Gatherings near you will now be eligible to host Tavern Hero Qualifiers, where you can battle it out against your fellow patrons to determine who will represent your local inn at one of the select Tavern Hero tournament locations across the Americas*. The Tavern Hero tournament for the Spring Season will take place the day before the Spring Playoffs begin, and the top 8 players will be crowned Tavern Heroes. These players will then join the top 64 competitors from the point standings to do battle in the Americas Spring Playoffs for one of four spots in the Spring Championship. More details will be revealed later.
This tournament will be held very similarly to our previous ones. Information that you need to know:
Have your decks screencapped and ready to send to us. Blizzard may want copies of them. Make sure your email on your battlenet account is one you check, as that is how they will be contacting you if you win. Make sure your battletag is correct when signing up, as that is how they will find your email to contact you. Make sure you know your password to your account. While we submit white list requests, on occasion they don’t go through. All it takes is one person not knowing their password to lock the whole bar out.
This is likely to be a very popular event, and we will likely hit our 32 person cap. Please arrive early if you would like to participate. We are sorry, but we cannot make the tourney accommodate more people or we will not finish before we close.
