The Hearthstone® Collegiate National Championship—part of the Tespa Competitive Series—will get underway early in 2017 with over $160,000 in scholarship prizing, legendary gear, and opportunities to organize your own Fireside Gatherings! Your school can field as many teams of 3 as want to participate and compete in one match each week during the regular season, and we encourage you to unite your Hearthstone community on campus by designating a coordinator.
Proceedings are scheduled to get underway on Monday, January 30, with select matches livestreamed at twitch.tv/playhearthstone. When the top 64 teams advance to the championship bracket in early April, all of the 190-plus eligible players still competing will qualify for scholarship prizing.
Once you've registered an account on Compete and verified your Student Status you can either create a new team, or join an open team from your school. The Signup page will display all other open teams from your school. If your school email was recently added to our system it may take up to 24 hours for an admin to verify it before you are able to register.
Registration is open now and closes at 10 p.m. PST on Tuesday, January 24, so gather your friends, form your team, and prepare your best decks!
If you'd like to watch the tournament unfold, we will be broadcasting twice a week from the PlayHearthstone Twitch Channel! Broadcast will be 5pm PDT to 9pm PDT every Monday and Tuesday.
