Best of 3 Swiss Conquest format followed by Top 8 playoffs. Open deck lists.
Each player brings 3 decks (unique classes), with 1 deck being banned by their opponent.
Conquest format; Once you win with a deck you cannot queue that deck again, first player to win with all of their decks wins. The losing player may queue with the same deck or another deck, if one is available.
Once you have finished your match, you will be paired up with an opponent with a similar game score. Do not leave if you lose Round 1! Unless you don't want to keep playing of course.
If you would like to drop out of the tournament, please contact an admin before you go. The best way is to post a message on the GGtoor Discord asking to be dropped (in the #HS-drop-from-event channel.)
After the Swiss portion, the 8 top performing players will play in a Single Elimination playoff bracket.
Format - Swiss
In Swiss format, you play a number of rounds determined by the number of players (64 players, 6 rounds, 128 players, 7 rounds). You can play in all of these rounds, you are not out of the tournament after a loss.
Each round, you will be matched up against someone with the same score as you, unless there is no one available, then the most appropriate opponent will be found.
Tie breakers are determined by the HCT Tiebreaker System, which is explained here. Battlefy works out tiebreakers automatically.
In a tournament with a Single Elimination Play-off, the top 8 players after the Swiss portion are seeded in a single elimination bracket. The exact score required to reach Top 8 is reliant on the number of players in the tournament, and how many players drop out and at which point they drop out, so an exact calculation is impossible to reach. Just do your best and have fun!
Format - Single Elimination Play-offs
After the Swiss portion, the Top 8 players will be seeded into a Single Elimination bracket. The losing player of each match will be eliminated, with the last player remaining getting 1st place and the losing player of the last match getting 2nd.
The 2 losing players of the quarter-finals (Top 4) will compete in another match, with the winner getting 3rd.
The Top 8 portion of this event will be streamed on our Twitch Channel, be sure to tune in and cheer for your favourite!

We have no problems with you streaming the Tournament, we actively encourage this! We do recommend the use of a 5-10 min delay to eliminate the (small) chance of stream sniping, but this is not a requirement.

If you are more than 15 minutes late you will be issued a match loss and will be dropped from the event.
DISCONNECTS There are no restarts for Disconnects in game. The disconnected player should attempt to rejoin the game as soon as possible. If the player loses while disconnected, the game result stands.

Players between the ages of 13 and 17 (or such other age, if greater, as may be required in such player’s country of residence) must have written permission from a parent or legal guardian (a form will be provided which must be returned in order to complete processing your registration).

CHEATING: Cheating of any kind will result in disqualification without prizes from the event, and being banned from all future events. If you are in a match where you believe your opponent cheated, please send any evidence you may have to the tournament staff. In addition to Hacking, "CHEATING" ALSO INCLUDES USING ANY BUG OR UNINTENDED EXPLOIT THAT EXISTS IN THE GAME, intentionally or unintentionally - UNLESS Staff has made an announcement to everyone about an exception to this rule. If this somehow happens to you unintentionally, you should immediately alert your opponent and tournament staff - if you don't, you will be deemed to have been Cheating, and you will be disqualified without prizing and banned from all future events
CONDUCT: Sportsmanlike conduct is expected. You are NOT allowed to be disruptive or grief your opponent in Real Life, such as in any Discord or Twitch chat (or any other actions that could be considered unsportsmanlike conduct except for actions intended to be allowed within the game itself as part of normal game-play.) If you do, your actions may result in a game loss, match loss, or disqualification from the event without prizes, solely at the discretion of the Tournament Staff.
RECORDING OPTIONAL: We realize not every player can do this, so this is not mandatory: If you have the capability, live streaming and/or recording video of all of your matches is a good idea, to help eliminate any possibility of any dispute arising as to performance in a given match.
