Pro Scene Point Update: December 2018

Pro Scene Point Update: December 2018

The third season of the 2018 Hearthstone Championship Tour (HCT) concluded on Nov. 30, and so it’s time to spotlight our Hearthstone Masters, final Pro Team Standings, and Regional Points Leaders.

Hearthstone Masters

This year, the Hearthstone Masters System was created to recognize top players based on the consistency of their performance. The program counts points earned since 2018 Season 1 through the Dec. 1, 2018–March 31, 2019 transitional season, as announced in Hearthstone Esports’ plans for 2019. Accrual toward Masters status will conclude with the 2018 HCT World Championship in the spring—but the benefits will not! Here’s what everyone who achieves Hearthstone Masters status will receive next year:
