To celebrate the launch of Duels, Hearthstone’s newest game mode, Blizzard Entertainment is hosting the Darkmoon Duel-Fest on Tuesday, Nov. 24.
The tournament, which will take place online, will feature 24 of the game’s most-loved creators and pro players, with big names like Kripp, Thijs, and Dog going head-to-head. In total, $200,000 will be on the line.
Darkmoon Duel-Fest will use a new format Blizzard is calling “Last Duelist Standing.” In the event, competitors will play through three closed-circuit Duels runs until one player remains or one or more players reach 12 wins.
Players will be awarded 10 points for a game win, but once a player loses three times, they’re out. After the three full runs are completed, the individual scores from each run will be combined to form a player’s final score. These scores will then decided the end results and prize pool.
Here’s everything you need to know about this tournament.
