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.

      It's all about repeat Tavern Brawls and Unstable Portals, as last week we had the Too Many Portals! brawl and this week we have another brawl utilising the same Mage spell.
      This is the second time we see this Tavern Brawl, as it was originally released two years ago. You pick your class and choose seven cards for your deck. The rest of the deck will be filled with Unstable Portals. The pool of your mulligan will consist of the seven cards that you have picked.
      Traditional Mage cards like Mana Wyrm and Flamewaker can be helpful in this Brawl. Rogue also has the tools to cheat out free spells with Counterfeit Coin and Preparation. Lastly, decks with the Barnes and Y'Shaarj, Rage Unbound combo seem popular this time.
      Next week we will have a new Tavern Brawl, as part of the Days of the Frozen Throne event!

      Blizzard and Twitch will collaborate yet again with the Cheering program being available for the finals of the Hearthstone Global Games.
      This is a way to actually support the final 16 HGG teams that will battle it out at BlizzCon 2018. From September 17 through November 14, link your Battle.net account to Twitch and Cheer for your favourite team(s) with Bits. The more your Cheer, the more rewards you will unlock: Twitch emotes, card packs, a special card back and even global rewards.
      You can read more about it below:
      Blizzard Entertainment
      With the top 16 countries and regions in the world identified, it’s time to see which teams will advance to the Hearthstone Global Games (HGG) playoffs at BlizzCon®. Celebrate the journey with HGG Cheer—a new program that allows you to support your favorite teams and unlock rewards in-game and on Twitch along the way!
      From Sept. 17 through Nov. 4, you can support participating HGG teams by Cheering with Bits on Twitch. As you Cheer for a team using their dedicated, custom Cheermote, a portion of the revenue will go back to the players on that team.
      When you Cheer for a team, you’ll also be able to unlock special Twitch emotes and in-game rewards for Hearthstone based on how much you Cheer. In addition to personal rewards, community support can unlock global rewards for everyone who has Cheered as overall milestones are reached.

      You’ll be able to see your personal and global progress on the official Hearthstone Twitch channel. HGG supporters can see:
      Your Progress: As you Cheer (for any team), you’ll make progress towards unlocking Twitch emotes and in-game rewards—including card packs and a card back—based on the level of Cheering you’ve done as an individual. Global Progress: Monitor the overall support for HGG and keep track as overall levels of Cheering unlock global rewards for supporters over a minimum level of personal Cheering.
      Here’s how to participate in HGG Cheer and unlock rewards:
      Link your Blizzard account to your Twitch account. Visit the official Hearthstone Twitch channel any time from Sept. 17 through Nov. 4. Select the Cheermote of the team you wish to support, then add the number of Bits you wish to Cheer (plus an optional custom message). Check back in the Tavern once goals are reached to automatically receive your rewards! (The card back will be added in a future Hearthstone update.)   Frequently Asked Questions How much revenue does a team receive when I Cheer for them?
      For each Bit Cheered for an HGG team, that team and Blizzard (as the tournament organizer) receive an equal amount of revenue. The HGG team’s portion is divided evenly among the four team members.
      Which teams are included in HGG Cheer?
      Brazil, Singapore, Ukraine, United Kingdom, Bulgaria, China, Chile, Chinese Taipei, Spain, Switzerland, New Zealand, Netherlands, Norway, Hong Kong, Portugal, and the United States are included.
      How do I Cheer for a team?
      To Cheer for your team of choice, click on the Bits icon in the corner of the chat window, select that team’s Cheermote, add the number of Bits you want to use, and optionally add a custom message to cheer them on.
      Can I use the regular Cheer command for HGG Cheer?
      No, regular Cheers won’t work for HGG Cheer. You can Cheer for any of the 16 remaining HGG teams using their team-themed Cheermotes.
      I forgot to link my Blizzard Battle.net account before Cheering! Can I still get the items?
      Yes! First, link your Blizzard account to your Twitch account. When you return to the Hearthstone Twitch channel, you’ll see that a “Redeem All” button has appeared. Hit that button to claim your items!
      Where can I watch HGG in my native language?
      You can view HGG in English, Russian, French, Korean, Japanese, Mandarin, and Thai.

        Everyone, get in here! Support your team in the Hearthstone Global Games and follow them as they chase the trophy at BlizzCon. The program goes live on Sept. 17, so link your accounts, get your Bits, and be ready to start Cheering for HGG!

      The Lich King is back with his various shenanigans and will be hosting next week's Tavern Brawl and more! Featuring the Death Knight heroes and KotFC cards, you'll also be getting a free golden card if you log in from September 19th to the 23rd! There's also 600 gold to be won in 2 special quests and a new bundle with 30 KotFC packs!
      September 19 - 23 (source)
      I, the Lich King will soon return to your pathetic world, mortal whelps!
      I left some belongings at Blizzard Headquarters during my last visit. While I’m in town to pick them up--from September 19 through September 23--you are invited to resurrect the glory of the Knights of the Frozen Throne. . . But better!
      If Knights of the Frozen Throne boggled your mortal minds, brace yourself for: DAYS of the Frozen Throne.
      Next week, I will once again raise Hearthstone’s champions as Death Knights in a brutal new Tavern Brawl! I will also dispose of some gold I don’t want to carry back to Northrend. And if you’re looking for more undead muscle, you can recruit more of my minions to do your bidding for a cool price.
      Behold!

      Death Knight Duels
      Prove which of my Death Knights reigns supreme in this chilling Tavern Brawl! You and your opponent will both skip tedious mortality and begin the match as a Death Knight! Each deck also comes appropriately armed with Knights of the Frozen Throne cards.
      Ghouls Play Free
      Log in to Hearthstone during the Days of the Frozen Throne to receive a free golden Happy Ghoul card. Unleash its cuteness on your future opponents. Or disenchant it, like an ungrateful savage.

      My Pocket Change
      Complete sequential special quests in order that reward 300 gold each, for a total of 600 gold. My total lack of interest in financial planning is your windfall!
      Warm Your Frozen Heart with More Packs
      Is your frail living body prone to cold? Want more cards from the Hearthstone expansion featuring the most powerful being to have ever un-lived? Do you crave the ferocious might of more Death Knights for your collection? Then acquire the Bundle Up Bundle – 30 Knights of the Frozen Throne card packs for a special price!
      I tire of this prattle. Attend and be rewarded, mortals!

      The card back for September 2018 is called Dr. Boom's Puzzle Lab.
      The Boomsday Project is in full swing and what better way to celebrate it than with an accompanying card back. You can earn the Dr. Boom's Lab card back by winning 5 Ranked games within September.

      It doesn't compare to the August card back, which was great, but it's a good one nonetheless. Good luck everyone!
