hearthstone 2015 Hearthstone World Championship

Blizzard has formally announced that there will be a 2015 Hearthstone World Championship. This is unsurprising, given the heavy emphasis that the company has continued to place on eSports across their titles. Details on this year's qualifying process are still sparse.

 

Lacking some of the structure and formality of Blizzard's WCS system for Starcraft, the Hearthstone World Championship (HSWC?) process could absolutely use further clarity. In addition, the open question lingers as to whether or not Blizzard will update or improve their tournament format.

 

With the surge of interest in Hearthstone across online tournaments, as a streaming title, and drawing attention from other TCG/CCG spaces, this year's tournament scene is set to be even more competitive than previous years. It's also very possible that another content update could arrive in the spring/summer, adding further complexity to the game leading up to the year-end world championship (likely at BlizzCon).

 

There are a number of wish list items left unaddressed in terms of the competitive scene for Hearthstone; the new Spectator mode is nice, if somewhat insufficient, but hopefully with the time they have Blizzard will iterate on the in-client spectating functionality and/or how they serve up streams of the major regional and championship tournaments.

 

Will you be following the competitive Hearthstone scene in 2015?

 

The first bits of information regarding Blizzard's global championship tournament series for Hearthstone have started to emerge.
