Fireside Gathering Recap

by Shauna Dawson on

Last weekend, I had the pleasure of attending my first Fireside Gathering. I’ve participated in local Hearthstone Tournaments in the past but this experiences was, overall, so much more enjoyable. There was still the fierce, competitive nature that typically accompanies a Tournament Bracket, but instead of people taking their bruised egos and leaving when they were eliminated, they stuck around and swapped gameplay war stories and cheered on the remaining competitors. 6 hours after I showed up at the event knowing 1 other person, I ended up having the pleasure of eating dinner with dozens of new friends! I’d like to think that experiences like mine are what Blizzard truly had in mind when they developed Hearthstone to be the fun, friendly and fiercely competitive game it has become. Intentional or not, Fireside Gatherings have become a huge success and BlizzPro had the honor of participating in 3 fun filled Gatherings last weekend. Heather, JR and

It sounds confusing, but Blizzard does a great job of clarifying the requirements below: Qualify for the Qualifier! If you’re a serious Hearthstone player, then attending a Fireside Gathering this weekend (and the first weekend of August) should feature into your plans in a major way. This could be your shot at the big times, so pay heed! The road to victory begins with these steps: Step One: Many Fireside Gathering events will be holding open tournaments, and if your card handling skills take the top spot in your local verified Fireside Gathering open tournament, then you could make it into your region’s online Fireside Pre-Qualifierhosted by ZOTAC. There will be two verified Fireside Gathering open

With our own Fireside Gathering coming up this weekend, it seems like summer is the perfect time to get a bunch of your friends together for some friendly games of Hearthstone.

The smoke has cleared and the cards are packed up, placed back into the Collection for now. Yesterday, at Comicazi in Somerville, MA, swaths of Hearthstone hopefuls from across Greater Boston gathered for the first major Fireside Gathering hosted in the area. BlizzPro, represented by myself, and Don’t Kick My Robot, represented by the leader and founder Poach, banded together to get this event off the ground and with logistics taken care of in the prior weeks, all that was left was to get to the shop and see who all would show up. The turnout did not disappoint, with about 25-30 people hanging out over the course of the afternoon! The Early Going As is wont to happen with any major event hinging on technology, some technical difficulties struck early on. The Internet we were relying on failed us. Luckily, one of the attendees was a network engineer and combined

This upcoming Saturday May 24, BlizzPro and Don’t Kick My Robot is partnering together to hold a Fireside Gathering event in Boston. Last month we also held in events in both Kansas City and Orlando.
