Hearthstone confirmed that its Masters Tour Montreal is now going to be an online-only event. What this means is that those who want to participate in this tournament need to go through the Masters Tour Online: Montreal Qualifiers. Scheduled for September 11–14, at stake is a prize pool of $3 million.

There are actually a total of five ways to get a spot in the Masters Tour Montreal. These are:

  • Winning one of the 90 online Masters Qualifiers between June 4 and July 26 on Battlefy.
  • Finishing with at least a 7-2 record at Masters Tour Online: Jonkoping and Masters Tour Online: Asia Pacific.
    • The Jonkoping tournament happens from June 12–14
    • The Asia Pacific tournament happens from July 17–19
  • Place within the top eight of a Masters Qualifier Online: Montreal five times,
  • Place in the top 16 Legends on the in-game Ladder in the months of June and July,
  • Be a Hearthstone Grandmaster

Online Tournaments

Back in early April it was announced that both the Masters Tour Online: Jonkoping and Masters Tour Online: Asia Pacific were going to be held online. This was a result of two things. The first was to ensure the safety of the players amidst the global pandemic. The second was that it was spurred by the success of the Masters Tour Los Angeles, which was also held online.
