The Crossroads Inn-vitational has begun! 20 of Hearthstone's awesome creators are battling it out on two teams to win their share of a $100,000 prize pool. You can watch or learn more about the event down below.
Competitors will assemble a 30-card Standard deck list using at least 10 cards from Forged in the Barrens, before playing through two best-of-three rounds against different opponents on the opposing team. One team point will be awarded for each individual game victory within a round, regardless of who wins. Three team points will be awarded for a clean 2-0 sweep.
Then, each team will play a 3rd round, the BARRENS BLITZ round, which is a best-of-five where all players are required to have Nozdormu the Eternal in their decks. One team point will be awarded for each individual game victory within the BARRENS BLITZ round, and five team points will be awarded for a 3-0 sweep!
Finally, when a player loses a round for the first time in the event they’ll become “Frenzied” for the next round, meaning any team points earned by that player are doubled!
