    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!

    I’m excited for this. I signed up when I first saw the post to check out the game. Very addicting, but a very strategic game. Many ways to earn packs without buying, but if going to pay, Cruz is right that arena is best bet for money. Feel free to add me and we can get a practice game in or two if both online. Ben919 #1127

    Also, made it to level 19 just once and can’t break the 20 mark. Very frustrating lol

    what the #### are all these ####### CARDS?????!!!

    the matchmaking in this game works about as well as dfs — feel like I’m in a h2h w/brit + chalk’s blowin’ up

    ps

    this is absolutely ####### ridiculous
    if I EVER manage to win a game with this ####### warlock I’m never playing him again

  • stephenly

    I see check-in starts at 1. Do we have to be checked in by 2? Will be driving home sometime Sunday afternoon. May be cutting it close if there is a hard cutoff.

    Bummer I was going to register and then I realized that the whole tourney isn’t Sunday and I’m leaving for a golf trip on Tuesday. I’ll have to catch the next one!

    Check in is between 1 and 2, yeah. That’s just how the software works. All you have to do though is go to the site and click Check In, and then you have 48 hours to play your match. If you think you might not be able to do that, shoot me a PM and we’ll figure something out.

    haha yeah there are some crazy ones out there, since the Basic ones are meant to just introduce you to the game. If you’re buying packs I would recommend Classic packs over anything. They’ll always be around, and there are some really powerful cards.

  • eom

    thx – I got 2 classics + 2 grand tournaments

    I gave goblins + w/e a fade cuz I think they said we can’t use those

    are we supposed to be combining all these cards into a deck manually, or something, or just let them sort themselves out?

    edit: this game is ridiculous
    they go through this whole matchmaking thing to find an equivalent opponent + the guy has an entire deck of these death rattle cards that give me absolutely 0% chance

    I just spent 500 of my HARD EARNED gold on GvG packs. I knew ignoring the fine print would one day cost me. :(

    This should be a lot of fun. Looking forward to getting stomped.

    The person I’m matched with isn’t showing as checked in. What do I do?

    It turns out that the check in wasn’t needed. I originally wasn’t sure if you had to check in to be seeded, but it let me do it. So add your opponent on BattleNet and if you don’t hear from him by the time the round is over, you get the automatic win

  • tmspriggs

    Stupid question: How do you add someone on battlenet? I sent a message in the match chat, I started a chat session with him with the top right chat icon and sent a friend request in Hearthstone, but can’t find a place to add him in battlenet.

    A friend request in Hearthsone is the same as adding on Battlenet :)

    Whoever Minty#1573 is, I’ve sent you a friend request and several messages on battle.net. Just shoot me a pm here and let me know what time is best for you to play. I have to do RG work today but should be available anytime after rosters lock or anytime tomorrow before the deadline.

    P.S. Cruzin, this is me proving I did all I could to schedule match. :)

    I’ve had a few people reach out to tell me that they haven’t been able to reach their opponent. If you don’t hear from them by 7pm EST tonight, send me a PM on the Discord channel. I’ll reach out to them myself, and if they don’t respond I’ll be booting them :)

    Also, cool little feature I just discovered. You can follow along with the results round by round by going to this live scoreboard. You can even post emotes and things to comment on it. Kinda fun.

    So with decklists locked are we not supposed to know our opponents decklists or is it locked because you don’t want it to be edited? Don’t care either way Just looking for some clarification one way or the other.

    Thanks.

    Sorry I missed this question! It’s a little of both. Don’t really want people viewing each other’s decklists, and certainly not eding their decks after the tournament starts.

    Everyone seems to be enjoying it, so another one is certainly a possibility!
