welcome to the raid fireside gathering
Fireside Gatherings are events where Hearthstone players can meet up together, grab food and drinks, socialize and play Hearthstone together. There’s usually a tournament running, but if competition isn’t your thing, feel free to relax and challenge others to some casual games.
I’m in, what do I need?
Glad you’re on board for some fun! All you need to participate is:
- A portable device capable of playing Hearthstone.
- An up-to-date Hearthstone Installation.
- Your own Blizzard Hearthstone/Battle.NET account.
- Your spookiest decks!
- €11.20 entry fee (this is charged solely by the venue, and in return, you’ll receive some awesome food).
How do I join the fireside?
Alright! You’re here, you’ve brought your phone/tablet/laptop and you’re ready to play some Hearthstone.
First of all, you’ll need to get connected to the Token Wi-Fi network. We recommend you signup using a fake email address, however, that’s up to you! If you need any help connecting your device to the WiFi, just bring your device over to the registration table and we’ll be happy to help.
Once you’re online and at the Hearthstone Menu, open up your friend list by clicking the button on the bottom left. At the top of your friend list, you’ll see a play icon beside your name. Click on it, and you’ll be given the option to hit “Fireside Gathering”.
You’ll be prompted to scan for Fireside Gatherings. Once the event has started, you’ll be able to find our Fireside Gathering. From there, you’ll be able to find all players at the Fireside on your friend’s list, and queue to play with them from within the app.
when & where is the fireside happening?
The Hallow’s End Fireside is happening Sunday, the 29th of October in Token, Smithfield. Simply mention you’re there for the Hearthstone Gathering on arrival, and you’ll be shown where we are. We’ll be taking up residence in the basement of Token from 17:30-20:30.
Be sure to get there well ahead of time, as we’re extremely limited to just 40 spaces, first come first serve. We’re anticipating high turnout rates, so we recommend players arrive at 17:00 and sample some of Token’s great games before the Fireside Gathering begins.
How do I receive my card back/nemsy?
If you’re attending one of our Firesides, I’m sure you’re wondering how you can get your hands on some of the sweet loot Blizzard provide for those brave enough to leave their gaming caves.
Players will receive the unique card back by playing three different opponents while at the Fireside Gathering. Nemsy will appear to players who partake in the Tavern Brawl, while at the Fireside Gathering (Raid is a verified Tavern).
AWESOME, WHAT IF I WANT TO COMPETE?
We encourage all players regardless of skill level to try their hands in the Hearthstone tournaments we offer. The tournament at the Fireside will be a Standard Tournament.
Competitors must register their interest in competing at the registration desk no later than fifteen minutes after the beginning of the Fireside.
Due to the time constraints of our Fireside, the format of our tournament will be BO1, with BO3 Last Hero Standing Finals. This means in all matches except the finals, simply queue up your deck of choice and try to beat your opponent.
The finalists will bring four classes and inform their opponent of their chosen classes. Each finalist will ban one of their opponents choices, and proceed to play until they have no decks remaining. Once a player loses with a deck, they cannot use that deck again in the series.
After each match, each player should report their match score to the registration desk. The group stage will run as long as feasible given time constraints (estimated four rounds).
