The overall turnout for the Hearthstone tournament was pretty good, totaling at 11 participants total. Since this was the first Hearthstone tournament that we ran our goal was more or less to establish a good idea of what the community looked like number-wise and whether or not future events were viable.
We were pleasantly surprised by the turnout and got the necessary feedback we needed to run future tournaments. As always our goal with tournaments are to create a healthy competitive environment with a strong emphasis on everyone having fun. Part of the way we think we can achieve that with this tournament is guaranteeing everyone a certain number of games, regardless of performance. To ensure this we are switching the format from double elimination to a swiss style so everyone gets more total games in. We are also going to change the rules to conquest format, which is the current tournament standard, instead of last deck standing.
We're improving our website to have better tournament registration support, our main goal being that your registration can be edited and updated after your submit it. If you plan on participating in future tournaments we suggest your register an account now.
Future tournament events are still on the drawing table but we're looking at an early January tournament for both Hearthstone and League of Legends. We're also exploring the possibility to put on a Smash Brothers Melee and Wii U dual tournament in mid December.
