FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

How do I start playing Hearthstone?

New players will need to signup and create a Battle.net account and download the “Hearthstone: Heroes of Warcraft” from the (PC) Battle.net Launcher, or (mobile) from App Store for iOS or Play Store for Android devices. You may register on site at the event or use your own devices to create an account.

How do I participate in the Lucky Draw?

All registration entries will automatically seed to Lucky Draw list, just make sure to register when you arrive and enter correct information. Any false information will consider the entry as rejected to claim the prize.

Should I download / update on site at the event?

It is highly recommended for all players and fireside gathering attendees to pre-download and update to the latest Hearthstone App version before attending our event. Please ensure your devices are not using any other application or downloading when using the WiFi provided. Having more than 50 connecting to our WiFi is very stressful for our limited bandwidth!

Do I have to literally "bring my own chair"?

Of course not, but there's nothing stopping you from doing so! Please use the space that's provided around our Hearthstone booth to prevent any congesting the event's traffic. There will be limited tables and chairs provided for all attendees, but if we run out of them, you'll have to duel like men, on their feet!

Anything else I should know about?

We'll be recording some footage from the event, so we can tell Blizzard how things went at our Fireside Gathering! Make sure to smile for them! Also, it is highly recommended to bring your own devices (laptop / tablet / phone) should you be participating in the tournament or fireside gathering. Plug points will be provided in limited quantity.
