One Nation of Gamers Hearthstone Opens are Back with New Alienware Giveaway

A new tournament series sponsored by GEICO, the Video Game Voters Network, and Alienware has been announced. After a very successful run in 2015, One Nation of Gamers are keeping the same format moving forward in 2016 and kicking off the series with an onsite Open at PAX South January 29th-31st. If you’re going to be at PAX South, you can signup here.

At the GEICO booth at PAX South we will be running a onsite tournament each day. Each tournament will consist of four 12-player heats run throughout the day. The winner of each heat will then compete for a $500 Visa Gift Card. Registration for each heat will be on a first-come first-served basis starting at 10am or you can pre-register here. There will, however, be a feature match area where games will be streamed and cast.

After the kick off at PAX, there will be five Feature Tournaments being fed by ten Opens primarily casted by TSM Kripparrian. Adding an extra Feature Tournament is one of the few changes we’ve made this year but it will give you an extra chance to qualify straight through to the Grand Final.

Speaking of which, the Grand Final this year will once again be held at PAX Prime! Winning a Feature Tournament is one way there, but there will also be a points race so get in on the Opens early.
