The first EMEA Hearthstone Battlegrounds tournament is taking place this weekend! A prize pool of $10,000 USD is up for grabs with 16 total participants from the top of the European Battlegrounds ladder and invited slots. More details onward!
The event will be streamed live on the usual YouTube but also on Twitch since this isn't a part of the main esports series of events. It should be interesting to see what kind of viewership we'll see on the main Twitch channel. Individual streamers participating are also going to be streaming their point of view, so watch your favourite if they're live.
