Welcome to ESBU gaming! Here at ESBU we strive to provide gamers with fun and relaxed gaming competitions. We have developed a unique Hearthstone tournament format to help fulfill these needs. If you want to participate in a free, open registration tournament you are in the right place!
This tournament we are getting back to our classic ‘Commons Only’ format. Only basic and common cards are allowed in this format. No rare, epic or legendary cards of any set are allowed. Go ahead, get creative! Build a deck and GLHF.
Rules & Format
- Commons Only – Rare (blue gem), Epic (purple gem) and Legendary (yellow gem) cards are banned.
- Use the same deck for the whole tournament. No switching or modify your deck.
- Single game matches. Report the results of your matches directly on the challonge site.
- Double Elimination. After losing a match, you will move to the losers’ bracket. Losing in the losers’ bracket is the end of the tournament for you… this week.
- Start match within 10 mins. If you are not online or responding within 10 minutes of your match becoming available, you will forfeit that match.
If you are found to be in violation of these rules, you will be removed from the tournament.
