Viewers can earn up to eight Murder at Castle Nathria card packs throughout the event.
Hearthstone Grandmasters: Last Call will kick off this weekend and feature a prize pool of $150,000 and a World Championship invite for the seasonal winner!
How It Works and Where to Watch
The Hearthstone Grandmasters: Last Call tournament will showcase the talents of 16 players. These competitors consist of the top four of each Season 1 region plus the top four players from the first three Hearthstone Masters Tours of 2022.
Here is the list of Hearthstone players and how they earned a spot in the upcoming tournament:
|Advanced From Americas||Advanced From Asia-Pacific||Advanced From Europe||Advanced From Masters Tour|
For a total of four weeks, these players will duke it out against each other on live broadcast. The first three weeks will have competitors put into four groups for some dual-tournament action. The two winners of each group will advance to the Sunday matches. Points will be earned based on the total number of weekly wins, and these points will determine who will head to the playoffs.
Hearthstone Grandmasters: Last Call Format
The format for Hearthstone Grandmasters: Last Call will also change on a weekly basis:
- Week 1: Best of 5 Conquest (July 22 – 24)
- Week 2: Trio (July 29 – 31)
- Week 3: Last Hero Standing (August 19 – 21)
- Week 4 Playoffs: Best of 7 Conquest (August 26 – 31)
Trio format returns to Hearthstone this week in Grandmasters Last Call. How does the format work, and what are its “buckets”?
Trio, the format introduced in 2022 to Hearthstone, brings new strategies and expects to spice things up before the Grandmasters program retires.
According to the announcement, Groups A and C will duel first on the first couple of days and showcase the Asia-Pacific region. Next, Groups B and D will play last on those days and feature players from the Americas. The two winners of each group will make up a top eight for single-elimination matches before the weekly winner gets crowned.
Hearthstone Esports also continues to invite talent to the main broadcasts list, which is a trend that began with Hearthstone Grandmasters 2022 Season 1 and was followed by Lobby Legends. So far, the casters for Week 1 have been revealed as Raven, Sottle, Amy Chen, Jia, Edelweiss and TJ.
