The wait is finally over – the next World Championship in Hearthstone has a date and a hosting city.
The news came during this year’s 2018 Hearthstone All-Star Invitational. The next big clash of Hearthstone’s best, and the culmination of the hard work, long qualification process and countless HCT victories of the card game elite, has an official date – April 25-28, 2019. The games will be played in Taipei – fitting, given the fact that the reigning champion, Wei Lin “tom60229” Chen, and the recent All-Star winner, Wu “BloodTrail” Zong-Chan, are both Taiwanese.
The Asian city will gather the top 16 players of the virtual card game for the ultimate test of their wit and resolve. We are about to witness the best decks and strategies being piloted by the most skilled masters, all in one epic fight for a purse of $1,000,000.
The final lineup will be announced later this year, but we can expect to see veterans such as the two aforementioned locals, as well as Fr0zen, JustSaiyan, and HunterRace, among others.
The event will be broadcast live on Hearthstone’s official streaming platforms. In the meantime, we will make sure you’re well informed on everything competitive Hearthstone.
