    Its over! Congrats to Rodpad for winning the inaugural EG Summer Hearthstone Tournament!

    Thanks for taking part guys!






    Okay guys, I have RNGed everyone into pairs (see below), and made a few alterations to the initially proposed rules to make things a little more fun. Make contact with your partner and arrange a game whenever convenient for both of you (but try and do it within a week or so!). A full list of participating players can be found below, complete with forum alias and battletag. Please read the rules carefully :)

    Rules
    - best out of 5 games
    - use any deck you like (no Naxxramas cards) for the first game
    - for subsequent games, the winner of the previous game must keep the deck they won with
    - again, if you win a game, you must use your previous deck in the next game. If you lost the previous game, use any deck you like
    - sort out disconnects between yourselves (i.e. do you need to replay the game, or was it already over?)
    - the winner of each matchup needs to tell me the final score over EG PM, or the thread


    Stakes are high!

    I'm in, THFourteen#2171

    I'll also donate £10 to the prize, maybe we could split it 25%/75% for 2nd place / 1st place in that case?

    I'm in, battletag BeheretiK#2404. Also happy to donate £10 so maybe get a 3rd place in there as well. Seems better and can be split £15/£10/£5 then. Unless someone else donates as well in which case I will just leave it to Benno to decide!

    Works for me, the lower the prize comes the more chance I have of getting one... How about a wooden spoon hehe

    lets call it 15%/25%/60% as it would be nice to have quite a top heavy winners bonus! 3rd place will be able to get a pint out of it, I'm sure :)

    £60 prize fund, stakes are getting pretty high

    might need to do some serious deck building theorycraft!

    I wonder what the intra-tournament meta game will be like - hope its not a murloc fest

    We can put a more well trusted forumite like Fruit_Salad to act as escrow perhaps?

    If we don't have a number of players equal to a power of 2 we'll probably have to do group stages, anyway, or some double elimination style thingy-me-do.

    Yes will have to keep an eye on that. We have 12 people so far, if we can try and get 32 players, that would be wonderful.
