Hearthstone was released on March 2014, and has become a mainstream title in the CCG video game genre. Based off of the lore of the MMORPG hit World of Warcraft, Hearthstone has a strong eSports and tournament scene fostered by its company, Blizzard. Blizzard hosts through numerous local LAN events, as well as high-profile cash-prize tournaments.
Each Hearthstone card deck features a class with special abilities and cards available to them. Players can compete their decks in PvP casual or ranked matches, or, play a dungeon run which involves playing against progressively more difficult AI opponents.
We will be hosting another Hearthstone Tournament Series this month! All are welcome! Come for the chance to win an honor star or a third class star of valor, as well as meet all the other Hearthstone players in Damage Incorporated! For information about the tournament rule-set, click here.
