Blizzard and TeSPA are teaming up to offer a $100,000 prize pool of scholarship money for a new three-player team league, where teams will work together to play a lone deck simultaneously. Further details are supposed to be forthcoming, presumably prior to the September 25 registration deadline.

 

Here is the initial announcement:

 

Blizzard Icon The TeSPA Collegiate Hearthstone Championship is Coming!

 

Coming this fall to schools across North America, the TeSPA Collegiate Hearthstone Championship promises fiercely  fun Hearthstone competition. The battle to the top will be formidable, but the rewards are truly legendary, with over $100,000 in scholarship money up for grabs!

 

 

You won’t face these trials alone. The TeSPA Collegiate Hearthstone Championship is a team event where three-player teams from across the United States and Canada will form to hone their skills, handcraft top-tier decks, and work together to achieve victory. Just ask Gahz’rilla: three heads are better than one, and each team can combine the might of three minds to pilot each of their decks to victory. The top team from each of four regions will move on to compete for ultimate victory at a live finals event later this year.

 

Are you ready to battle for fame, glory, and a whole lotta scholarship money? Just find two trusty Hearthstone teammates on your campus and sign up today atcompete.tespa.org.

 

There are a few more things to keep in mind:

  • Teams must consist of three players currently enrolled in the same college
  • Each team member must be a part-time or full-time student of a four-year college
  • This is a new competitive format in which teams of three work together to play a single deck
  • Teams play one deck at a time, but accounts can be switched between games
  • League play consists of one best-of-five match a week for 7 weeks, followed by the playoffs

Got it? Great! It’s time to gather your team and sign up. Act fast, because registration ends September 25!

 

We’ll have more TeSPA Collegiate Hearthstone Championship news for you as the competition heats up, so stay tuned for information about weekly live broadcasts on Twitch, as well as details regarding the live finals event.

 

Thinking of registering a team for this league? Let us know! We'd love to talk to potential competitors.

      This is the second time this Brawl appears.
      The trend of Tavern Brawls themed after Death Knight Hero Powers continue: last week we had Rise of the Zombeasts, now we have Shadow Reflection.
      In this constructed Brawl, you can craft a deck of any size with cards from your collection. The rest of the deck will consist of Shadow Reflections. Decks consisted of 30 cards (and thus with no Shadow Reflections) can still work, given that Odd Paladin has reportedly been successful (and a total fun breaker).
      Judging from the previous time this Brawl was around, Aggro and OTK decks seems to be more favoured. Some decks that had success were Aggro Mage or Ice Lance Mage, Combo Priest with Radiant Elemental, Hunter with Mechwarper and Metaltooth Leaper and Quest Rogue. This time around a new Warrior deck, which mostly relies on Bring It On!, has surfaced to counter all the Priest Mind Blast madness.
      Good luck and have fun!

      Starting first is often seen as better than going second, in spite of the extra card and The Coin that you receive at the start of the game. This is due to the loss of tempo from the missing mana. Although the difference in win rates is quite small, it still can be felt, especially in Aggro vs Aggro matchups, where going first results in a significant advantage.
      Who goes first is decided by quite literally a coin flip—it is decided randomly, visualised by a coin toss. There is no way to affect whether you go first or second. However, you can mitigate the effects of the coin toss by playing a deck that is not affected as much by going first or second.

      Both players get to play as Deathstalker Rexxar, the Hunter Death Knight!
      It's time to experience how powerful Deathstalker Rexxar is; the hero card is, after all, included in some of the best decks of the current meta like Spell and Recruit Hunter.
      The Hero Power is free in this Tavern Brawl, so you can use it all you want. It's better to use it first on your turn and it really tests your skill as you need to craft the proper Zombeast for the situation you are in. Your deck will also be filled with various random Zombeasts, as well as Hunter cards. Lastly, you will start at 3 mana.
      Games can last long and your hand will be quite full most of the time, so be careful not to overdraw.
      This Tavern Brawl is part of the Taverns of Time event. Good luck!
