Hearthstone is one of Blizzard's most critically adored titles ever released from the acclaimed developer. With such a massive fan base surrounding it, the Hearthstone society is already heading out to the mainstream world once more in perhaps their biggest tournament of the year, in the form of the Hearthstone World Championship.

It was reported by Digital Trends that the recently held rounds to the road of the American Hearthstone World Championships last October 10 and 11 have gone through the most intense and jaw-dropping experiences imaginable. Now, in a few hours' time, the last stop to becoming the victor is upon the fans as the Hearthstone World Championship will become part of BlizzCon's Opening Week events.

As delivered by Lazy Gamer, many players from various parts of the world will take a chance in getting the job done-some from the Americas, Europe, China and even from the Asia-Pacific regions are ready to give the best possible games to this worldwide event. To make things a lot more interesting, the prize pool for the Hearthstone World Championship amounts to an astonishing $250,000.

In definition, 16 players will be segregated in four different groups, wherein two groups will advance from each group to come up with a final 8 line up, moving forward to the single elimination bracket. This will take place on October 28th to the 31st, starting at 9:00AM PDT, 12:00PM EST or 5:00PM CET. From there, the Single elimination round will take place, all battling for the title of Hearthstone World Champion.

In other news, according to Venture Beat, recent updates on the game's system and characters have gone significantly drastic as per Blizzard. A few weeks back, it became a resonating trend online that the undoubtedly powerful Warsong Commander was declared to have been nerfed which is also a fan feedback-based update, according to Blizzard. This itself, was a notable change that had fans wildly speaking about because of having nerfed the character more than expected.

The Hearthstone World Championship is to take place on November 6 at 11:45 AM PST and November 7 at 10:30 AM PST. Will the competitive gamers of the title make luck and skill coincide with each other in the upcoming Hearthstone World Championship?
