Battlegrounds Brawl is now live! You can watch it on the official PlayHearthstone Twitch channel (or on participants Twitch channels if you want to see the event from their perspective – find the list below).
16 players are split into four different teams and two lobbies will happen at the same time. Teams will get scored based on their players individual performance – 5 points for 1st place, 4 points for 2nd, 2 points for 3rd and 1 point for 4th. There’s a total of $200,000 prize pool, with up to $20k per team member to grab for the winners.
On top of that, Twitch Drops are now active. Watch 2 hours of ANY Hearthstone Twitch stream to get an Ashes of Outland card pack. Watch 2 more (so 4 in total) for a second pack. The drops last until 7:30 PM PT (4:30 AM CET), so you have some time to get the packs.

For the climactic conclusion of the FELFIRE FESTIVAL OF MUSIC AND VENGEANCE, we’re excited to announce the return of the Battlegrounds Brawl! On June 23, from 9:00 a.m. – 2:00 p.m. PT, 16 Hearthstone creators will be split into 4 teams—the Southsea Swashbucklers, Bloodsail Buccaneers, Fogsail Freebooters, and Northsea Navigators—each competing for their share of a $200,000 prize pool across 7 rounds of heated Battlegrounds action!
How it Works
Scoring: Two games will be played simultaneously in each round. Points will be awarded at the end of each round to individual competitors based on their placement and added to their team’s total point score.
- 1st place finish = 5 points awarded
- 2nd place finish = 4 points awarded
- 3rd place finish = 2 points awarded
- 4th place finish = 1 point awarded
Prizing: $200,000 in total is up for grabs! Final placement and respective prizing will be determined by each team’s total point score after 7 rounds. Each team’s total number of 1st place finishes will be the primary tiebreaker.
- 1st place team = $20,000 per member
- 2nd place team = $12,500 per member
- 3rd place team = $10,000 per member
- 4th place team = $7,500 per member
Where to Watch
Battlegrounds Brawl: Pirates & Mayhem will be broadcast live on the official Hearthstone Twitch and YouTube channels, with participants streaming their own perspective to their respective channels as well.
