Blizzard has announced the Hearthstone Crossroads Inn-vitational, where 20 creators of the Hearthstone community will be duking it out against each other. A prize pool of $100,000 will be on the line.

The Hearthstone Crossroads Inn-vitational event will consist of two teams. Team Northwatch Hold will include players like Octavian “Kripparrian” Morosan, Chen “tom60229” Wei Lin and Thijs “Thijs” Molendijk. Recently, Thijs became the Week 1 champion for Hearthstone Grandmasters America.

Going up against Northwatch Hold will be Camp Taurajo. This team consists of players such as James “Firebat” Kostesich, Jeffrey “Trump” Shih and Dima “Rdu” Radu. Like Thijs, Rdu also fought in the Week 1 Hearthstone Grandmasters tournament. Rdu represented the Europe region.

Hearthstone Crossroads Inn-vitational format

In terms of how the upcoming event will work, each Hearthstone player will create a Standard deck that consists of at least 10 cards from the newest expansion. Each competitor will duel in two best-of-three rounds against players from the opposing team.

Within each round, players will receive one point for each individual game victory. Players who achieve a score of 2-0 will receive three team points.

After this, there will be a third round that will involve Nozdormu the Eternal. At the start of a game, this particular Hearthstone card will make turns last for only 15 seconds if it’s in both players’ decks.

A team point is given out to individual game victories within the round. Five points will go to players who manage a 3-0 clean sweep.

Additionally, when a competitor loses a round for the first time, they will be given the “Frenzied” status. This means they will be able to earn double the team points.

The Hearthstone Crossroads Inn-vitational begins April 21 at 10 a.m. PDT. Fans can watch the action over on Twitch and YouTube.
