The first major Insomnia Hearthstone tournament has been announced, taking place from the 11th – 13th of December 2015.
Eight professional Hearthstone players from around the world will be invited to compete at the NEC in Birmingham for a share of $30,000, the biggest ever Insomnia prize fund.
Six players will also have the opportunity to compete through a live LAN qualifier taking place at Insomnia on Friday the 11th of December. The qualifier will be open to all Insomnia56 BYOC attendees and the winners will face off against some of the biggest names in Hearthstone.
An additional two spots for the main event are available through an online qualifier taking place at the end of this month.
If you are a mere mortal, don’t fret. All unqualified players can still enter the regular £2,000 Insomnia Hearthstone Cup.
