We have been approved for a Summer Tavern Hero Qualifier bracket!

** Note: You MUST be physically present at the event to participate. **

Cash donation (suggest $5-$7) is the entry fee. All players in the Tavern Hero Qualifier must register their full account name and list of three heroes on our Challonge bracket. Conquest format is required, where you use a Standard deck from 3 different Heroes, and you must use these same 3 decks throughout the entire competition. Please arrive with ample time so that all players can indicate on Challonge they are ready (Check-In), we can then do the bracket seeding (randomization), and start the competition on time at 6:30pm. Keep in mind that if you are late it is not possible to join once the bracket has commenced. After each match, the results are updated on the Challonge bracket.

The winner will be able to represent our local group at the upcoming Summer Tavern Hero tournament (in various cities, likely one will be in Toronto) which will take place the day before the Summer Preliminary begins, and the top 32 players will be crowned Tavern Heroes. These players will then join the top 128 competitors from the point standings to do battle in the Americas Summer Preliminary for one of eight spots in the Americas Summer Championship. 

Everyone is invited to participate. We must have a minimum of 16 players in the bracket for our winner to be officially recognized, so please feel free to participate even if you don't think you have a good chance of winning. It is a fun process regardless of where you place! Blizzard may have player age restrictions, which we are in the process of verifying (eg. must be 18 years or older). 

Tavern Hero Qualifier - Bracket Registration

We are using this free online service,, to track our Tavern Hero Qualifier bracket so that Blizzard can easily view the information. To secure a spot in the bracket you must login to and Check-In during the 2 hours right before the event starts at 6:30pm. You may adjust your team name up until you Check-In.

Important! Your team name must be your full account name followed by the three hero types you will be using for the entire bracket. Your full account name is shown in Hearthstone when you click the Social button in the lower left corner. It is a name followed by a hash then several numbers such as: KWfireside#1709

Tavern Hero Qualifier competition requirements:
* Must take place from June 4 to July 24
* Must be open to the public, and held in a public venue
* Must have a minimum of 16 players
* Must be played using Standard decks in the Conquest format
* Must provide a completed event report and tournament bracket within 1 week of the end of the qualifier
* Organizers are not eligible to participate in their own Tavern Hero Qualifier

My understanding of the Conquest Format is:
* All players use their 3 pre-chosen decks, which must be from 3 different heroes, for the duration of the entire bracket
* Decks cannot be modified in any manner for the duration of the entire bracket
* Within a match, after each game won the winning player must switch to a different pre-chosen hero deck they have not yet won with
* The match win occurs after one player has won 3 games i.e. one game won with each of their three pre-chosen hero decks (this may require playing 3, 4, or 5 games to achieve match win)

I wish you luck and much fun with your Tavern Hero Qualifier battles!
