$40,000 up for grabs in Hearthstone at DreamHack Winter!

DreamHack is excited to announce that Hearthstone will be returning to Jönköping, Sweden for DreamHack Winter 2015 and the second instalment of the Hearthstone Grand Prix series!
This year’s tournament will once again feature an open, non-elimination Swiss format system followed by an elimination stage. Every player out there will have a chance to compete against the most famous Hearthstone streamers and accomplished pro players on an even playing field— with $40,000 USD in prize money up for grabs!
The tournament will take place live at DreamHack Winter 2015 from November 26-28, with two days of Swiss play on the 26th and 27th and the single elimination playoffs on the 28th.
Following TiddlerCelestial’s huge victory at DreamHack Summer, this DreamHack Hearthstone Grand Prix Series will be bigger and better than ever, with an expanded format and room for even more players. We’ll be allowing additional signups past the previous 128-player cap, and we’ll be using a top 16 cut to provide players with a better chance to make it through the cutthroat Swiss stage!
