Hearthstone Tournament to Feature Team Format

Some familiar orgs in the eSports scene are set to face off in the Deck Gauntlet 3, a five day Hearthstone tournament.  Players from Na’Vi, compLexity, SK Gaming, Team Virtus.pro, and ANOX will all compete for a share of the $5,000 USD prize pool.

The format for the tournament puts a twist on the traditional individual play in Hearthstone.  The players are representing one of the five organizations, and the players will be working together to make sure their team takes home the title and the grand prize of $2000.

“With Hearthstone usually 1 vs. 1, you don’t get the chance to see who is essentially the best team in the world,” said SK Powder.

“This time around, there is no shortage of amazing teams and players from around the world and we cannot wait to see how this event is going to be with the new and exciting format.”

Dates: September 5th-9th, 2016
