How It Works
Hearthstone Grandmasters will feature three regions—Americas, Europe and Asia-Pacific—with 16 players per region making a grand total of 48 players. Each region will be randomly separated into two divisions of eight players each. Players in each division will play a double round robin using the best-of-three Specialist format. After all matches are finished, players will be ranked within their own division according to the number of wins they accumulate. We will unveil the divisions at the HCT 2019 World Championship in Taipei on April 28 before the Grand Finals.
Players will be invited to join Hearthstone Grandmasters in its inaugural year by Blizzard Entertainment based on criteria including lifetime earnings, points earned during HCT 2018, seasonal points leaders, contributions to the Hearthstone community, and more. Hearthstone Grandmasters will earn performance-based prize money during the season and are automatically qualified to compete at all Hearthstone Masters Tour events. We will be revealing the inaugural Grandmasters rosters by region in the coming weeks.
The top three players in each division at the end of each season will play in a six-player Grandmasters Seasonal Playoff. The finalist from each region for both 2019 seasons, plus two players from the China Gold Series—a total of eight players—will compete in the Hearthstone Global Finals at the end of the year for a $500,000 prize pool.
Following the conclusion of Season 2 of Hearthstone Grandmasters, each player who finished last in their respective division will be at risk of relegation. The top cash prize-earners from the Masters Tour program in each region will become eligible to receive an invitation to replace the bottom finishing Grandmasters in the 2020 seasons.
