Lobby Legends Fire Festival details
Once again we gather in Bob’s tavern to see a formidable battle for the $50,000 prize pool. The competitors had to lock a top 16 ladder finish in their region and then, be part of the top 12 players in the 48-person qualifier. The final stand happens this weekend, and this is what you need to know.
4 Chinese representatives will join the 12 mentioned players from the Americas, European and Asia-Pacific regions. The competitive format for Lobby Legends: Fire Festival will be the same as the previous events. Hearthstone Esports divided the 16 players into two lobbies that will take place on Saturday.
They will compete in three games, with only the top 4 of each lobby advancing to the Lobby Legends: Fire Festival finals on Sunday. The format for the finals will have the usual twist, players will still accumulate points, but the champion will be decided under the Check Format.
Finalists will need to accumulate 20 points first to put the lobby in check. After putting the lobby in check, the players that reach that 20 points threshold will need to win a Lobby to claim the Battlegrounds Fire Festival champion title.
Meet the players
We are still waiting for the Chinese Qualys to end. However, we do know the 12 representatives from the Americas, European and Asia-Pacific regions.
