The Hearthstone Masters Tour is all set to make a return this weekend and all eyes are going to focus on the Asia-Pacific region. Like Jönköping, this tournament is going to be held purely online. This is not a surprise, however, as this move was announced way back in April. You can read more about that here.

The Masters Tour Online: Asia-Pacific begins this July 17, with the championship match set for Sunday, July 19. More than 320 players coming from at least 40 countries are set to compete to get a shot at the $3 million prize pool of the Hearthstone Masters Tour 2020. Of course, that’s only going to be second to getting the title of Masters Tour Champion.

The Masters Tour Online: Asia-Pacific itself is offering a $250,000 prize pool. The casters for the tournament include Jacinta Patricia “Jia” Dee, Darroch “Darroch” Brown, Alex “RavenCasts” Baguley, Simon “Sottle” Welch, and Neil “l0rinda” Bond.

Unlike other esports, this one is going to be pretty easy to watch as the whole competition is going to be streamed live on YouTube. The action takes place on the official Hearthstone esports channel. Broadcast starts at 8:00 PM EDT every day from Thursday to Sunday. There are also non-English broadcasts available here:

The tournament format is going to be players in the four deck, best-of five Conquest with a ban format. Players that are able to get at least a 7-2 result qualify for the Hearthstone Masters Tour Online: Montreal, which is scheduled for September 11–13. These same players also also get to qualify for the Hearthstone Masters Tour Madrid, which is from December 11 to December 13.

Day One is going to feature five rounds of Swiss. Players that get their third match loss are immediately eliminated from the tournament. Those that get at least three wins move to Day Two, which itself is going to have players go through four more rounds of Swiss. Finally, the top eight players will compete in the playoffs, which is on Day Three. After that a new Masters Tour Champion is going to be crowned.
