The ESL UK & Ireland Hearthstone Premiership is returning over the coming weeks, with Swiss-style qualifiers getting underway on September 18th and 25th.
The top eight from each of the first qualifier days will be invited back on September 19th or 26th to compete in the elimination bracket.
This will determine the four qualifiers from each cup who will join the Premiership for the full upcoming autumn season, as outlined in this post by ESL UK.
The top eight players from last season will also be invited back to take part: Mysterious, Duncan, BigBen, TingTing52, Danswf, HelloLeeroy, Ness and last season’s winner, GreenSheep.
The autumn season will get underway on October 4th of October and run to the end of November. It’s not yet revealed where the final will take place, but ESL say it will be its first ever eight-player final.
It hasn’t been confirmed whether Hearthstone players will be rapping this Premiership season or not…
