Hearthstone returns this year with $50,000 in Scholarship Prizing, legendary gear, and opportunities to organize your own Fireside Gathering. Your school can field as many teams of 3 as want to participate, but we challenge you to unite your Hearthstone community on campus by designating a coordinator. The top four teams will advance to the live finals in January! Registration is open now, so gather your friends, pull up a chair, and prepare your best decks!


Registration will end on September 30th, 2016 at which point all teams marked as ‘Eligible’ on their ‘My Team’ page will be added to the brackets. Teams of 3 will be split up into four regions and play through five weeks of Group Stages where they will be assigned 1-2 ‘Best of 5’ Conquest matches each week. All teams who finish Group Stages with a record of W/L record of 4-2 or higher (4-2, 5-1, 6-0) will advance to the single elimination Regional Playoffs seeded by performance from the group stages.
