Hearthstone IeSF Qualifier

Assembly Organizing holds the Finnish Hearthstone IeSF Qualifier tournament with 16 players and a 1,000€ prize pool taking place at ASSEMBLY Summer 2014 in Helsinki on July 31st.

Assembly and SEUL are proud to present the Assembly Summer Hearthstone: Heroes of Warcraft IeSF Qualifier at this year’s ASSEMBLY. The newest upcomer in the competitive eSports scene, Hearthstone, will attract 16 players from Finland to compete for the 1,000 € prize pool. The tournament will begin on the 31st of July 2014.

The tournament will consist of 16 players gathered through direct invites and online qualifiers which will be announced later. Seeing as how Hearthstone has been making waves in the eSports community, we expect several top tier players to be vying for a spot at the tournament.  Since the IeSF World Championship Hearthstone tournament in Baku is male only, the Finnish qualifier will only be open to male players. The IeSF has re-evaluated their rules and thus the national qualifier tournament is open to all Finnish players.

The tournament’s winner will also earn the right to represent Finland in the upcoming IeSF world championships at Baku! So the stakes are high.
