New forum and other cool features
Wednesday, October 29th. 9:10am
I designed a simple forum for the website just to add a local place for questions and community. Also a place for me to post stats and data from prior tournaments.
One of the features of the forums is your personal avatar. Whenever you win tournament matches, you earn dust. The further along you make it in a tournament, the more you earn. Finalists take home a whole lot. You can use that dust to "buy" new card avatars.
In addition, you can also earn (a much smaller amount of) dust by participating in the forums. Every post or comment will get you a little closer to your next card. Winning a tournament will get you closer to legendary a lot faster, but for those of you who enjoy talking about Hearthstone more than being great at it, this is your chance to avoid Wisp-status forever.
No Monday Night Mayhem tonight! Resume next week.
Monday, October 27th. 12:48pm
Due to the fact that Jonathan (DnA) -- the tournament creator -- is using tonight to propose to his girlfriend, there will be no tournament tonight.
We'll resume next weekend at the latest for Sunday's arena-draft tournament, and perhaps earlier with another event.
See you soon!
24-hour gaming marathon by a close friend
Thursday, October 23rd. 5:58pm
Monarch here, you may know of me from various YouTube videos (StarCraft Dance, Who is Artosis, Crocolisk is OP...etc) or from the StarCrack Podcast where we were the first to host a fictional StarCraft tournament with adult film star Mia Rose. Also, (somewhat related) was involved in the Pizza.GG (scandal?) when I managed the for Papa Johns social media account (that's another story though).
This weekend I'll be playing Hearthstone for 24 hours in support of Children's Miracle Network and the Arnold Palmer Hospital for Children here in Orlando FL. I'd very much appreciate your support as it's for a great cause. Some people do athletic ventures to raise money for charity, others game!
In addition, I'll be playing in the BIG $200 Empeopled.com Open Saturday afternoon if I can keep my eyes open. Please take a moment to look at the cause and if you think it is worthwhile, please donate some of your time or money towards my effort.

Arena style Hearthstone Tournaments on the way!
Monday, October 20th. 9:12am
Ever wanted to try an arena deck in a hearthstone tournament? It's coming. I'm developing a special style of tournament where players will draft an arena-style Hearthstone deck before the tournament starts.
Drafts will consist of only your own cards (since there's no possible way I can give you the cards you draft). And no cards will be presented that you would not be able to add to your constructed deck. For example, if you have 2 fireballs, you will not be able to get a 3rd. In addition, if you don't have any of the 3 cards presented, you will always have the option to select a random basic card.
Look for the first arena-style Hearthstone tournaments to come online soon. Development is progressing rapidly.
The BIG $200 Empeopled.com Open Hearthstone Tournament
Friday, October 17th. 7:11am
I'm pleased to be partnered with Empeopled.com and their amazing developers and administrators. The team over there has worked hard to bring you this tournament and I'm proud to be the one hosting the back end on my end.
If you've played in many of the hearthstone tournaments here at HearthstoneOpen.com, then you've probably run into a few of the regulars that participate.
Take a moment to sign up for the tournament, and check out empeopled.com's website. They have a friendly and active Hearthstone community there and it would be worth a few minutes to really check them out.
Good luck in the BIG $200 Empeopled.com open tournament next week!
