Open your packs early and revel in some Fireside fun prior to The Boomsday Project’s official launch—only at the Pre-Release event in the Esports Game Arena powered by TOPdesk Nederland. We also have a free to play Hearthstone tournament with a prize pool of 500 euro! Double elimination, best of 3 with 1 ban, standard, and conquest. Upcoming expansion cards are not allowed for this tournament.
Pre-Release events are special Fireside Gatherings where you can open any packs you have from the upcoming Hearthstone expansion early—and play with them in unique Fireside Brawls! That means you’ll be able to open the packs you pre-purchased, as well as any others you may have earned via Tavern Brawls or other events.
Opening new packs is always exciting, but Pre-Release events take that excitement even further by allowing you to actually play with the cards you’ve opened before the expansion’s official release in two different Fireside Brawls.
There’s Your Basic Boomsday Brawl, a deck-building brawl that will allow you to construct decks with the cards that you open during the Pre-Release event as well as those from your Basic collection.
And then there’s also A Scientific Recipe, a pre-constructed brawl that will have new deck recipes from the upcoming set for you to play with!
Your newly-opened cards will be viewable in the Collection Manager, though they’ll only be playable at an official Pre-Release event prior to launch. You also won’t be able to disenchant or craft cards until the expansion’s official launch.
