FAQ

Q: How can I join the league?
A: The original post explains what events are currently under way and what events we are currently recruiting for. Just PM me your Hearthstone nickname (accessible in Battle.net if you choose Hearthstone and hover over your nickname in the upper right) and follow the directions for the event that you wish to join.

Q: What if I’m on the EU (Europe) server?
A: Just say so when you send me your PM and I’ll create an EU bracket if there is enough interest.

Q: What are the rules for the event that I am in?
A: See the grids in the original post, or the text just below them, for the rules.

Q: How do I ‘vote’ for the hero I’d like to play? (not applicable right now)
A: Send me a PM with nine votes split among your desired heroes (e.g. you might send “7 Druid, 2 Rogue” or “3 Shaman, 3 Warrior, 3 Priest” or “9 Warlock”). As we begin, I will assign heroes, starting with those who got 9 votes, and breaking ties at random.

Nishoba#something will update when home.

Happy to play least chosen again

I’ve only barely played this but might be interested after I learn the game a bit. Would any of you guys be up for friendly games with a total noob?

If you add the players above in the matrix to your Battle.net friends list, you’ll find plenty of people willing to whip ya into shape.

I’m assuming the Chickens are excluding legendary cards?

Beats me. I’ve never seen one. Should they? Would 2 legendary cards kick the shit out of 2 epics?

Depends on the legendary, in most cases no

I assume that people with awesome legendary cards would be embarrassed to be a Chicken. :)

Forgot to record this, but Thraeg defeats Ananab Tilps 3-0

Also, I’d be in for the Stampeding Kodos.

I’m in for Stampeding Kodos!

So… could everyone please PM me instead of posting? :) Besides, you’re supposed to PM me your hero votes. I’m definitely giving priority to people who send votes in over people who just post that they want to play.

I think I need to play my games in the current matrix before committing to other matrices, because I feel like others are frustrated with me.

Feelings are not important in the matrix.

PM sent. Funkula#1770 for anyone who wants to add me for casuals.

I’m in for the Chickens! PM on the way shortly. And anyone wanting to play a bit casually is encouraged to friend ineffablebob#1284 and message me anytime.

I’ll be hopping only in a sec. Hit me up if you want to battle my Priest for the first tournament. First to contact me in-game, first to feel my holy wrath!

Shame exists on the internets? Go figure. :)

I’m in for angry chickens.

PM sent for class choice prefs.
