With the Summer Championships wrapping up this weekend and BlizzCon just around the corner, the final competitors for the Hearthstone World Championship will be determined by the Last Call Invitationals, featuring the players who have earned the most HCT points across all three Hearthstone Championship Tour seasons. Next weekend will feature the Europe and Asia-Pacific Last Calls beginning October 8 and 9, respectively. The Americas Last Call will happen the weekend after, on October 15, and will complete the roster of players competing in the World Championship at BlizzCon—for a share of the $1 million USD prize pool!
If you’re in the Southern California or Toronto areas, why not stop by to meet and chat with the competitors and your fellow players while watching all the action live? The Americas Last Call will take place in Santa Ana, California, and Toronto, Canada. Both venues are open to the public, so swing by to watch the story unfold in-person, duel with other players, and enjoy some of the side events lined up for attendees. You’ll also be able to pick up that Power Core card back* that’s been eluding your collection!
