Hearthstone is Blizzard’s take on the card game genre, and it has been quite a hit ever since it launched in 2014, and it just kept getting bigger and bigger, attracting lots of players in the meantime and become one of the most popular cards games of today. Of course, as all competitive games do, Hearthstone has a pretty solid competitive scene, and today we will be talking about the very first Hearthstone Major in South Korea.
Of course, you don’t have to actually be from South Korea if you want to participate in the Korea Major, as it’s open to all players from all parts of the world. This will be a 512-player tournament, and now that we have the newest expansion out, Knights of the Frozen Throne, we expect to see a lot of cool decks, alongside the all powerful and mighty Jade Druid deck. The tournament is being held in Seoul, and it will start with the Preliminaries in internet cafés on September 29th, then the winners will compete for their chance in the finals in the Inven offline studio (which will be open to spectators) on September 30th, and finally the best of the best will battle it out in the Nexon Arena on October 1st.
The registrations will be open on Sept. 8, 09:00 am (KST), so if you want to register you should prepare yourself, as the registrations close on Sept. 15, 08:59 am (KST). You should also check for a place to stay if you plan on going to South Korea, but Blizzard was nice enough to recommend a nice hotel for you to stay at, and it’s close to the Nexon Arena, which is also a huge plus! Find more details on the hotel and the prizes of the Korea Major on their official post.
