Multiplay to host $30,000 Hearthstone tournament at Insomnia56

Multiplay have today announced that Hearthstone will be headlining their Insomnia56 event in December this year with their largest ever prize pool of $30,000 on the line. It will be a sixteen person tournament ran on the weekend of the 12th-13th of December. Participation will be split between eight invites from around the world, six from a LAN qualifier the night before and two from an online qualifier taking place at the end of this month.

Planning on attending? Get the best Hearthstone legendaries in stock before you do.

The announcement was made today through the Multiplay blog. The official title is the Truesilver Championship, and it will be partnered with a £2,000 regular Hearthstone cup for anyone that doesn't manage to qualify. Naturally it'll be livestreamed on the Multiplay twitch channel from the LAN's home in the Birmingham NEC. There's no word on who's being invited so far, or who will be casting, but with a reasonable prize pool it's unlikely to be turned down by major players.

Of course, if you're attending you could take the prize yourself. All BYOC (bring your own computer) attendees of the I56 LAN will be able to enter the Friday tournament, from which six players will enter the main bracket. That's if they're not successful in the online portion, of course.

Multiplay say more details will be forthcoming in the next few weeks, so keep an eye on their site or Twitter for more info.

I just can't stand watching Hearthstone... I enjoy playing it, but watching it is so boring.

The biggest reason for this, is because all the players there use the same 3 decks over and over again.

The championship thing that happened a few weeks ago, in the final it was patron vs patron... I mean, where's the diversity? All it comes down to at that point is luck of the draw. There's no real strategy there.

It's a shame really, as it could be fun to watch, but due to Blizzard's balancing act, all you will see is the same 3 top tier decks, with no difference between them.
