We’ve heard your call, aspiring champions—and now there are more ways to get involved with the Tavern Heroes program than ever before! Starting Saturday, June 4, approved Fireside Gatherings will be able to host Tavern Hero Qualifiers. Winners of these competitions will be eligible to participate in the Tavern Hero tournament for a chance to earn a spot at the 2016 Hearthstone Americas Summer Preliminary. Find out more below!
Fireside Gatherings near you will now be eligible to host Tavern Hero Qualifiers, where you can battle it out against your fellow patrons to determine who will represent your local inn at one of the select Tavern Hero tournament locations across the Americas. The Tavern Hero tournament for the Summer Season will take place the day before the Summer Preliminary begins, and the top 32 players will be crowned Tavern Heroes. These players will then join the top 128 competitors from the point standings to do battle in the Americas Summer Preliminary for one of eight spots in the Americas Summer Championship. See our 2016 Hearthstone Championship Tour blog for details on this year’s point structure and match formats.
