Update: Day 2 of the event is now live!
Blizzard has announced more details about the upcoming Masters Tour: Summer Championship event. It’s the second of only three Masters Tour events this year, culminating in a World Championship by the end of the year. You can read more details about this year’s (rather sad) Hearthstone esports program here and here. 16 players from three major regions will compete for their share of the $50k prize pool, as well as a chance to qualify for the 2023 Hearthstone World Championship.
The event is happening a couple of weeks into the TITANS expansion. We did have a small balance update, but the meta has already adjusted to it. The next balance update is bigger, but it will drop after the event. So it’s going to be interesting to see what decks players bring and which of the meta choices perform best in a tournament format with bans.
Twitch drops will also be active. Watch the tournament on the official Twitch channel to earn up to two TITANS card packs. You get 1 pack per 2 hours of watch time, so you need to watch the stream (or just put it in the background) for 4 hours in total. Just be sure to connect your Twitch and Battle.net accounts if you haven’t done it already.
