To arms, friends! The second phase of the Americas Qualifier Tournament begins this weekend, bringing 16 of the most skilled card-slingers in the region together for a high stakes duel. To the victors go the spoils—in this case, four spots at BlizzCon 2014, where they’ll compete against 12 other players for a share of the $250,000 prize pool.
The action kicks off on October 5 from the majestic Hammerstein Ballroom, where community fixtures Dan “Frodan” Chou, Ryan “Realz” Masterson and Erik "DoA" Lonnquist will be shoutcasting all of the Hearthstone excitement with Rachel "Seltzer" Quirico there to guide you through the action. If you can’t make it to New York City, don’t fret! All of the fun will be available for your viewing pleasure live on the official PlayHearthstone Twitch channel.
Take the time to read up on some of the top players in the Americas region before the brawl begins. You can also plot out the duels to come with the Roadmap to BlizzCon. The Road to BlizzCon is drawing ever closer to a final, epic showdown, so don’t be caught unprepared!
