Europe’s best card-slingers will be putting their decks to the test at one of the year’s biggest Blizzard eSports events this fall. The 2015 European Road to BlizzCon will be making its final stop at the 02 Arena in Prague, Czech Republic, where the Hearthstone European Championship will take place on October 3 and 4.
There will be plenty to play for, as participants battle it out for a share of $25,000 USD in prize money. And that’s not all; the top four players at the Hearthstone European Championship will also earn the chance to compete against the best gamers from the rest of the globe in the World Championship at BlizzCon in November.
In addition to the epic Hearthstone eSports action, the event will feature the European Championships for Heroes of the Storm and World of Warcraft. It’s sure to be an awesome weekend, and there will be lots of entertainment in store for those who attend in person. Visitors will be able to go hands-on with Blizzard’s upcoming team-based shooter, Overwatch, participate in cosplay activities and quizzes, and more. StarCraft II fans at the event are also in for a treat, as some of Europe’s top players throw down in Legacy of the Void show matches.
More information about tickets to the event will be announced soon. If you can’t make it to Prague, you’ll still be able to follow the action via online streams—we’ll have details on how and where you can watch in the coming weeks.
