DREAMHACK GRAND PRIX RETURNS WITH 6 HCT TOUR STOPS IN 2018!

With the excitement of last year’s DreamHack Hearthstone Grand Prix still fresh in our minds, we are happy to announce that the tournament returns in 2018! Shuffle your decks and flex your fingers—it’s time for some more Hearthstone.

In 2017, over 800 players participated in the DreamHack Hearthstone Grand Prix, and we’re going even bigger this year. With larger brackets and more players, as well as 191 HCT points up for grabs at each Grand Prix Tour Stop, the competition will be more prestigious than ever before.

For 2018, DreamHack is also excited to announce that the Grand Prix will now be more central to the Hearthstone esports ecosystem, with each Tour Stop functioning as an official HCT event.

As always, all the best games will be streamed live online. If you can’t attend in person or compete on-site, be sure to tune in.
