Next Stop on the Hearthstone Masters Tour: Seoul, South Korea!
April 28 is the final qualifier for Masters Tour Las Vegas! That means we’re onto the next Masters Tour location. From May 7-June 30, Masters Qualifiers will open up for our next stop; Seoul, South Korea! Widely considered the epicenter of esports, there is no better place to throw a massive Hearthstone tournament. With $250,000 on the line, plus additional prizing from the soon-to-be-announced Esports Bundle, the competition is guaranteed to be heated!
Given South Korea’s vibrant history of competitive gaming, we thought it best to take the Masters Tour straight to its heart—a giant LAN Cafe! In case you don’t know what a LAN Cafe is, it’s simply a place that provides computers with internet access to the public that are commonly used for gaming. VRIZ PC Cafe will host Day 1 and Day 2 of the Swiss bracket on August 16 and 17, while the Finals will be played live at the famous OGN Studios on August 18!
