DreamHack Hearthstone Grand Prix
The DreamHack Grand Prix circuit was launched in 2015, starting with the two centrepieces of the DreamHack events, Summer and Winter. In 2016 Grand Prix expanded, adding Austin and Valencia to the list of stops for the tournament. It has expanded into what is now recognised as the largest third party tournament in the Hearthstone scene, spanning across two continents with thousands of participants and over $100,000 in prizes. It is widely considered among players as one of the most prestigious tournaments in competitive Hearthstone to win.
In 2017, DreamHack will continue to expand the DreamHack Hearthstone Grand Prix Circuit, hosting tournaments at more DreamHack events than ever. The DreamHack Hearthstone Grand Prix will be featured at seven DreamHack events. Each stop will host a major open swiss tournament for everyone willing to compete, and the 16 top players moving on to single elimination. There will be a minimum of 200 competitor slots per tournament with a total prize pool of $25,000. As if that wasn’t enough, each stop will also feature side events with side prizes and $1,500 for players who don’t make it through the gruelling swiss stages of the main tournament. In total $185,500 will be awarded to competitive Hearthstone players throughout the year at DreamHack events!
