Hearthstone is back for 2017 and with 16 players in our group stages we’re looking at the biggest season we’ve ever seen in the Premiership, culminating in our live finals at MCM Comic Con in May.
We’ll be kicking off our open qualifiers on the 28th of February, which will run on Tuesday and Wednesday for three weeks. The top 4 from each of those cups will join our reigning champion Jambre, as well as last season’s finalists Mysterious, HelloLeeroy and BoarControl for the group stage, starting on the 27th of March.
Our group stage will run over 7 weeks but we won’t be using our regular round robin format. We’ll dive into a 5 round limited-Swiss Bracket from the 27th of March for the first five weeks before we take the top 8 players into an elimination bracket to find the best 4 players in the UK and Ireland to join us at Comic Con London.
