Hearthstone Grand Prix Comes to Denver

Hearthstone Grand Prix Comes to Denver

Following up on last year’s success, DreamHack is excited to announce that the DreamHack Hearthstone Grand Prix circuit will continue in 2017, and to kick off our first event in Denver with a bang we are bringing it along!

Hearthstone has gathered over 50 million players since launching in 2014, and DreamHack was among the first major third-party organizers to host live tournaments for the game. 2016 was a big year, with more than 800 players competing in the DreamHack Hearthstone Grand Prix circuit, and over $100,000 USD prize money up for grabs. The circuit garnered over 7 million live views online, and has become one of the most prestigious tournaments for competitive Hearthstone players to win.

In 2017, DreamHack will continue to expand the DreamHack Hearthstone Grand Prix circuit, hosting tournaments at more events than ever. 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.

In total, $185,500 will be awarded to competitive Hearthstone players at DreamHack events throughout the year!
