    With our recent introduction of the eSports Daily Research Console, we’ve discovered that there are actually quite a few eSports fans amoung the Grinders community. Although AlphaDraft only offers League of Legends and Counter-Strike: Global Offensive DFS contests, Hearthstone is another extremely popular eSport that has a lot of similarities with daily fantasy.

    With that in mind, we thought it would be fun to put together a freeroll Hearthstone tournament for our members to participate in. It’s a great chance to meet and play Hearthstone with other DFS players, and hey, it’s free!

    REMINDER: This starts this weekend! Sign up now to reserve your spot.

    For those of you who aren’t familiar with Hearthstone, it’s a digital collectible card game that can be played on any computer/smartphone/tablet. Think Magic: The Gathering or other similar games. You can download it for free here .

    The Quick Breakdown

    The tournament will be held on Sunday, March 13th at 2pm EST. Check in begins an hour before the tournament starts (more details on this on the sign up page).

    This tournament is completely free to particpate in, and will feature a $100 $200 1 prize pool, along with some RG swag.

    1 UPDATE: The folks over at Alpha Draft have decided to sponsor this event, so in addition to the original prizes, Alpha Draft will be throwing in another $100 to be added to the winner(s) AD accounts!

    The first few rounds will be a swiss format. We will then make a top cut (total cut depends on the number of players), and play single elimination from there.

    In anticipation of the upcoming Standard format, this tournament will not allow the Naxx or GvG set (Promo/Reward cards are also not allowed).

    Swiss rounds will be 48 hours each, and finals will be streamed live, all at once.

    That’s the quick run down, but you can find more details on the actual sign up page below:

    Also, while this tournament will be hosted online, we’re considering throwing an in-office get together at the RG office here in Nashville for any local players that would like to attend. If you’re interested in coming to the office for an RG meet and greet, reply here or send me an email at brian@rotogrinders.com so we can get an accurate headcount.

    I look forward to seeing you all in game!

    This looks really interesting. I have never played a HS tourney before, just piddled around casually, so I would probably get trounced.

    I’m right there with you haha. I just started playing around Christmas, and haven’t played any tournaments yet. I’ll probably get rocked, but it’s bound to be fun at least! (And it’s Free)

    I used to think I was good, until my 10 year old daughter completely destroyed me.

    Cool idea though..I’ll give it a shot.

    Now if you hold a Donkey Kong tourney…..

  • Drew52786

    Sounds fun! Thanks for ogranizing

  • BobGrinder

    Should probably repin this.

  • stephenly

    Fun idea. I’ll probably end up playing, although I’m terrible at HS and don’t have a ton of cards.

    Let me know if there is a league of legends tournament :)

    I’m in! Thanks for organizing Brian. — Not sure about this new format yet, but will be great practice, and a fresh experience.

    Yeah, the format won’t be relevant to when the new set is released, but it should at least shake things up a bit.

    I also just realized that 3/5 doesn’t work, so I’m going to push the date back a week to 3/12. Sorry about that!

    I am in, however this is the last Saturday before selection Sunday so I might end up roping out on you guys. Apologies in advance

  • ms5keroid

    Oh, this is pretty cool, I’m interested!

    Hmm, seeing how you’re showing some interest in Hearthstone now, after League of Legends, does this mean we can expect some activity in regard to Counter Strike: Global Offensive? I know DK doesn’t have it either (yet?), but there are a couple sites right now who have fantasy running for it!

    despite being a massive fish, I’ve spent too much $$$ on these cards to not put them to use.

    in!

  • BomberFD

    Would love to join but I’ll be on shift at the firehouse. My cards will just continue to waste away as I just get the monthly new deck skin.

    I’m tempted to enter this just to show off my murloc harassment deck. It’s very annoying to play against lol.

  • Sacoftrees916
