A single-elimination bracket, with round structure as follows:
- 256-32 players: BO3
- 16 players and up: BO5
The tournament uses the new Blizzard-created format called Conquest. You will use 3 different decks from 3 different classes (3 decks altogether, no zoo lock and handlock at the same time etc.). The first player to win 2 or 3 games within the match (depending on the format) is considered the winner of the match and advances. A player must win the games with unique decks to win the match. This means that when a player wins a game, the deck used by the winning player cannot be used for the remainder of the match. The losing player can keep the same deck used or switch to a different one of their choice.
You are not allowed to leave the challenge screen during a match.
You are only allowed to play the chosen 3 decks for the duration of the whole tournament.
A disconnect is considered a loss.
The winning player is required to take a screenshot of the winning screen and upload it when reporting results.
If a player has not shown up within 10 minutes of game starting time, they will automatically forfeit their game.
In case of a draw, both players win and have to pick new decks to play with. If the game was the deciding one for the match, the game will be replayed using the same heroes.
You are required to submit your hero picks in advance to your opponent before matches. You can do this via battle.net messaging. For more instructions related to picking heroes, please read the full tournament rules.
All matches are allowed to be played immediately once they become available, unless a result is contested. Play all matches immediately when available.
