Class Selection
All players will end up with 2 classes they can play.
They will need to spend hours 0-12 with one class and 13-24 with the other class

Drafting/Class Selection Process
First ban/pick phase:
All players will be ordered randomly (1, 2, 3, 4)
All players will ban a class in order 1-4. This class is unavailable for every player in the first 12 hours.
All players will pick a class from the 5 available classes in order 1-4.

Second ban/pick phase:
At the halfway mark the order will be reversed, and all players will ban a class in order 4-1. These classes are unavailable for every player in the last 12 hours.
All players will pick a class from the 5 available classes in order 4-1.

Each player will have an account with all basic cards unlocked for every class.
Each player will be awarded 10 packs as a starting bonus.
Each account will have access to Naxxramas and Black rock mountain. No bonus other than the cards unlocked will be given to the players for completing a solo adventure.

Contest Rules
Each player will begin at the same time, at 18:00 CEST
The competition will continue on for 24 hours.
There will be a mandatory 1 hour break at hour 14-15.
At the end of the contest whoever is highest on the ladder wins the $5,000 prize and is crowned champion. (stars count, legendary rank counts)
Every segment (contest end, every pause for a duel, etc) will start when every player finishes their current game. So if a player finds a match with 1 minute left in the contest, they will complete that game and it will count.
If two players have the same rank and stars, they will play in a BO3 showdown.

Random Ladder Meetings
If two marathons meet randomly on the ladder, the winner of the match can choose a card of his opponents that they need to disenchant.

How to Earn Decks
Every player gets 3 pack per hour. The player can choose to get normal, GvG or TGT card packs.
Every 6 hours, the players will be randomly paired into two matches and play in a mini 1v1 BO1 single elimination tournament. The winner will be awarded with 5 extra packs.
Social Media
Every third hour stream viewers can tweet in with #ASUS_Rog and #PlayItCool and #PacksforPlayer to give packs to their favourite. All three hashtags must be in the tweet to make the vote count. The player with most mentions will get bonus packs as follows:
1st = 5
2nd = 3
3rd = 2
4th = 1
The player can choose to get normal, GvG or TGT card packs.
