Hearthstone Battlegrounds Lobby Legends: Noblegarden will kick off this weekend, featuring a new hero, minions and the Spellcraft keyword. This also means Lobby Legends: Noblegarden will be the first event of its kind to showcase the inaugural Rise of the Naga Hearthstone Battlegrounds season. A prize pool of $50,000 will be at stake as the top 16 Hearthstone Battlegrounds players duke it out for the most points and victory.
How Lobby Legends: Noblegarden works
The Lobby Legends: Noblegarden action will commence on Saturday at 2 a.m. ET, with 16 players being split into two lobbies. Below are the players and their respective lobbies:
- Lobby A: SaoKing, yjSJMR, Kid, Roger, Xixo, Alucard, yanase, Bofur.
- Lobby B: Jag-eunsae, Dapeedou, Maks7k, Oroff, Awedragon, Sisyphus, Koyomi, Babofat.
Each lobby will complete three matches, and, after each match, competitors will receive points based on their game placement. Once all the matches end, only the top four players from each lobby will head to the next stage.
“Following each match, players will be awarded points based on finish, with 7 points going to 1st place, 6 for 2nd, decreasing to 0 for 8th place,” Blizzard explained in an announcement.
On day two of the tournament, the top eight players will duel under the check format until a winner is determined. The points system will be the same as the first day, but a player must earn a minimum of 20 points and then get first place in a match. These two conditions must be met before the competitor can receive the bulk of the $50,000 prize pool.
