Official blogpost (Chinese) –

Edit: To be clear, this is an official companion add-on by Hearthstone China (developed by NetEase) – it isn't third party.

I’m a little pressed for time right now, so will write in bullet points but I’ll add details tonight (if needed). Feel free to ask questions, I'll answer them later if I can.

  • Online tournament this weekend (16-18 August 2019, 1700 to 2200 CST daily)

  • Tournament will be held entirely and handled within the new online tournament feature (beta) in the companion add-on client.

  • Windows-only at the moment.

  • Last Hero Standing BO3 (two classes), each player plays 15 rounds.

  • No registration required, just log into Hearthstone and enter the official companion add-on at the time of the tournament.

  • 5,000 player limit, first come first served.

  • Prizes:

  • 1st to 10th – 388 Battlenet points

  • 11th to 500th – 60 Battlenet points

Some additional points and reporting from Chinese sites 营地 YingDi and NGA:

  • Some of the editors have played in it for months, testing has been on-going for a while now.

  • Hearthstone China held a small public stress test for the feature a few weeks ago.

  • According to YingDi's article, there are plans to support more formats (including Wild), expand the scope to greater than 5,000 players, as well as improve matchmaking.

  • YingDi quoted China Senior Esports Manager Sophie Guo that this online tournament feature will be a highlight of the Gold Series tournaments in the second half of the year.

Additional points of note about the tournament format this weekend:

  • Matchmaking is automatic and handled within the client. You will be matched with a player at similar wins.

  • You can choose to play your 15 rounds at any time within the stipulated 15 hours (across 3 days), as long as you finish them before the tournament ends.

  • You can change decks between rounds, but not within a round.

  • Whizbang and Zayle, Shadow Cloak are banned.
