Masters Tour: Vashj’ir

The first Hearthstone Esports season for 2022 is over, and Master Tour Vashj’ir will inaugurate the second part. The $250,000 event will give out points to qualify for the Fall Seasonal Championship. On top of that, players making 6-2 or better will also earn an invite for Masters Tour Five. 

As always, Hearthstone will reward viewers with drops during the YouTube broadcast equivalent to two Voyage to the Sunken City free packs. 

Despite we are still waiting on the Murder at Castle Nathria expansion to arrive on August 2nd, this Masters tour will see a new card featured. Hearthstone Esports confirmed that Prince Renathal is eligible for the event. While some pro-players disliked this, it will spice up the established metagame.

Masters Tour Vashj’ir will consist of two stages of competition divided into three days. The first stage starting on Thursday (due to time zones), will be an 8-Rounds Swiss bracket, in which players will give their best to get the top 16 spots that advance to the final day of competition.
