Red Bull has announced a tournament to take place on February 6th between four of the top teams in Hearthstone. It will be a team format using limited packs and limited deck building time. Players will all be wearing microphones, which will allow them to discuss plays with their teammates, or even play mind games with their opponents, which seems to be encouraged.


Every team will consist of three players. They will each be assigned 240 cards generated with a Sealed Deck Generator available on Tempo Storm's website. They will have 30 minutes to build three decks form their card pool, and each card can only be used once. At the end of that time, they will assign one deck to each player. Each team will play each other team, and within that match, each member will play each other member in a best of one. Players will all be wearing microphones, which will allow them to discuss plays with their teammates, or even play mind games with their opponents, which seems to be encouraged.

After all of the teams have played each other once, the two teams with the most individual points will advance to a best of nine final; again with each player playing each player from the opposing team once each. The winning team will get $3,000 and DX Racer Chairs.

The four teams involved are:

Archon: Zalae, Firebat, Amaz
Liquid: Savjz, Dog, Trump
Tempo Storm: Eloise, Reynad, Ratsmah
Cloud 9: StrifeCro, Hafu, TidesofTime

These lineups should lead to a fascinating tournament. Cloud 9 will likely be the favourites. Hafu is regarded by her peers as probably the best Arena player in the world. Tides, while known for his constructed play, is also a powerful Arena player. StrifeCro will bring a lot to the group as well, being not only a great player, but also one who likes to experiment with decks.

Archon could be the surprise package. Zalae will be very used to this kind of format from his Magic: The Gathering days, and also conducts a regular "Deck Doctor" slot on his stream, where he takes viewer decks and makes small changes. Amaz also plays a lot of Arena, and Firebat's playing and analysis skills are well known to be in contention for being the best in the world.

In the other teams, which are loaded with powerful constructed Hearthstone players, Ratsmah and Trump are both strong at Arena play, and clearly the event can be won by any of the four teams.
