Cardslingers get ready, Hearthstone is back!

Following up on last year’s success, we are excited to announce that the DreamHack Hearthstone Grand Prix circuit will continue in 2017!

The DreamHack Hearthstone Grand Prix will be featured at seven DreamHack events—each stop hosting a major open Swiss tournament for everyone willing to compete, before the 16 top players move onto a single-elimination stage. There will be a minimum of 200 competitor slots per tournament, each with a total prize pool of $25,000. As if that wasn’t enough, each stop will also feature side events with special prizes and a $1,500 prize pool at stake for players who don’t make it through the grueling Swiss stages of the main tournament.
