Blizzard announced that registration for the Masters Qualifiers for its upcoming Hearthstone Masters Tour: Seoul are now open. The Masters Qualifiers are scheduled to begin May 7 and end on June 30. The qualifier limits the number of participants to 224. Those who register after the limit is reached have the chance to be put on a wait list. Each qualifier winner gets an invite to the Masters Tour along with 20 Hearthstone packs.

The Hearthstone Masters Tour: Seoul is the second stop for the 2019 Hearthstone Masters Tour. Qualified players then battle on August 16 through August 18 for a chance to get a large slice of the $250,000 prize pool.

The first day of the tournament is expected to have seven rounds of Swiss pairing. Players that are able to get at least four wins immediately get a chance to compete on the second day. The second day has five additional rounds of Swiss pairings.

After the five Swiss rounds are done, the top eight players then proceed to two dual-tournament format groups, with participants playing all the initial matches. These same players then return on the third day to finish out the tournament.

All matches are to be played in-person and follow a best-of-three format. The only difference is the finals which is a best-of-five.

Games played during the tournament will be livestreamed on the official Hearthstone Twitch channel.

Aside from the Masters Qualifiers, Ranked Ladder tournaments are scheduled to be held in May and June, with winners getting the chance to join the Masters Tour Seoul. Each Ranked Ladder Qualifier Tournament is limited to a maximum of 200 players.

Masters Qualifiers for the Masters Tour: Las Vegas are still ongoing with around 20 slots left. Two-time WSOE champion Jia Aquino "Jia" Dee has already qualified for the tour through the Masters Qualifier - NA Ladder Qualifier. Other players who have qualified for the Masters Las Vegas through the NA Qualifier include Andreas "Zyrios" Harsche and Petar "SilentStorm" Radev. The Las Vegas leg is scheduled to begin June 14 and end June 16.

After Seoul, the next Masters tournament heads to Europe.
