The Hearthstone Championship Tour is headed to Toronto
HCT Toronto is a Grand Prix-style Tour Stop taking place March 9 through 11, with 191 Hearthstone Competitive Points and $15,000 USD on the line! It’s also the final Tour Stop for Season 1, so make sure to sign up.
HCT Toronto will feature a 256-player Swiss bracket that will narrow down to a single elimination playoff. All matches are best-of-five, played in Conquest format with one ban. Deck lists will be open, and it is a bring-your-own-device tournament.
The event will take place at the EGLX gaming convention—the same location as the first Canadian HCT Major in 2016! Registration requires the purchase of an EGLX Hearthstone competitor pass by 2:00 p.m. EST on March 3.
Registration for the tournament requires pre-purchase of an EGLX Hearthstone competitor pass. Pass sales will cease on March 3, 2:00 p.m. EST.
If you have any questions about the tournament or its registration, reach out to the tournament organizer via email. As with other Grand Prix Tour Stops, travel to the tournament must be self-funded. EGLX has a partner hotel—learn more here!
