Hearthstone Masters Tour Voyage to the Sunken City will kick off this weekend and feature cards from the latest expansion. A prize pool of $250,000 will be on the line alongside points toward the Masters Summer Championship and an invitation to this summer’s Grandmasters: Last Call tournament.
Blizzard also announced that throughout this weekend’s live broadcast, viewers can earn up to two Voyage to the Sunken City card packs.
How it works and where to watch
From Friday to Sunday, competitors will duke it out against each other by bringing four decks into the fray. They will fight under the best-of-five conquest with a ban format.
The first day of matches will include four rounds of swiss, which will be followed by swiss rounds five to eight on day two. Championship Sunday will then have the top 16 Hearthstone Masters Tour Voyage to the Sunken City players battle for a spot in the top eight playoffs.
The live broadcasts will begin at 2 a.m. ET each day on the game’s official YouTube channel. The games will also be available on the Hearthstone Esports channel with streams in Japanese, Korean, Portuguese and Spanish.
Hearthstone Masters Tour Voyage to the Sunken City card packs
Viewers will have the opportunity to earn a couple of Voyage to the Sunken City card packs during the live broadcasts. Viewers must watch a total of two hours to get the first pack while they can earn another card pack by watching two more hours of content. The time watched will be cumulative throughout the weekend, which means viewers don’t have to watch four hours in one sitting to earn the rewards.
To get started, a viewer must connect their Battle.net and YouTube accounts. This can be done by visiting the “Connected Apps” section on YouTube and pressing the “Connect” button located beside Battle.net.
Future Masters Tour invitations
Hearthstone Masters Tour Voyage to the Sunken City is the third tournament of its kind this year. Players who wish to compete in one of the remaining three Masters Tours of 2022 still have time to qualify via Battlefy.
A player must win a Masters Tours Qualifier event, have a top Qualifier win rate or be in the top “50 on monthly Ladder in each region.” Those who don’t already have an invitation to the next Hearthstone Masters Tour event must earn “a 6-2 or better record in Swiss Rounds,” according to Blizzard. The full set of rules and details are available on the Hearthstone website.
