    Hello and welcome to the Going Ham Gaming Hearthstone Tournament!

    If you would like to participate, please reply in this thread and PM me your Battle.net ID.

    This tournament will be using the Last Hero Standing tournament format in which players must select 3 decks of differing classes to play in a best of 5 with the winners deck staying on and the loser choosing another of their two remaining decks. Once a deck has lost, it cannot be replayed for the remainder of the match. The first participant to win 3 games wins the match.

    All decks must be submitted prior to the event starting. Decks can be submitted via PM to myself using the Hearthpwn Deck Builder. These decks cannot be changed and must be played throughout the entirety of the competition.

    This will be a randomly seeded single elimination bracket tournament.

    We’ll begin the tournament on July 10th. Players will have 3 days each round to complete their match.

    Bracket: http://challonge.com/1vrig3vp

    Do you have to own a minimum number of [tier X] cards or can scrubs like me who haven't played in ages show up for fun and whatnots?

    I am willing to get curb stomped into oblivion and reclaim my title of Ragetastic for the new forum.

    Anyone can join. I wouldn't want to exclude anyone for that reason.

    Bring it on. Assuming I can overcome my love of gimmick decks you're all screwed.

    On a side note, if you are looking for ways to make it friendly for the non-tryhards you could consider card restrictions like commons and rares only, or x number of epics or legendaries. Of course there are very competitive decks that are pretty cheap already (zoolock and face hunter as examples).

    As a tryhard, I prefer to use my decks in their fullest :P

    EDIT: And of course I'd be very interested. Though you may want to do the older style of last hero standing rather than the current conquest. This would be an effective way to mitigate the "not enough cards" problem without actually limiting on deckbuilding.

    Last Hero standing means you can get away with only 1 kick ass deck, while conquest requires you to have 3 that can win.

    Is there a deadline to submit our decks? Or just before the 10th?

    As a reminder to newer players who don't have as many cards, there are plenty of strong, effective decks out there that don't cost a lot. Some include Warlock Zoo, Patron Warrior, and Face Hunter, looking up any of those on deckbuilding sites like Hearthpwn will give you a general list/baseline to copy/follow.

    I personally prefer making my own decks, and if you use these suggested lists you'll be a little weaker due to the general knowledge about what you run. But if you just need a 3rd class or want something strong to help you out. Check them out.

    Can you confirm which players have sent decks in? (Not that I'm nervously panicking or anything...)

    walterwalterwalter def. Rituro 3-0 in what can charitably be called an atrocious roflstomping.
