EGE 2016 | Hearthstone Tournament Details

Hearthstone fans, your time has come at EGE 2016, and with it comes a R10,000 cash prize pool.

This event at EGE will be brought to you in conjunction with one of the local champions of Hearthstone in Weekly Level Up and will be played on both Saturday and Sunday of the expo. On the Friday, there will the school’s tournament, while a number of adhoc events will be hosted too.

The Saturday portion of the tournament will see 64 players participate in a best of three Swiss rounds component with the top eight players returning Sunday to battle in the best of five playoffs.

The entry requirement for players is that they are in possession of at least a weekend pass (R200 via Computicket) to compete in one title. Should you wish to compete in any additional main tournament (such as a fighting or the FIFA 16 tournament), you will be required to pay an additional R100.

Participants must register here now, and while walk-ins will be allowed on the Saturday (subject to meeting the entry fee requirements), it is recommended you secure your spot via registration and purchase your weekend pass.
