12-11-2014, 09:42 AM
We are excited to announce that there will be some changes in the Open Series as we move forward in Beta and beyond. The Open has been a blast to run and we are going to do our best to make the events more and more fun to play in while also raising the competition in the events. The way we are doing this is by adding a point system to the series that will ultimately lead to our “HeavyHitter Invitational” – a 16 player tournament of the top players from the past season of the Open Series. We are also upping the prize support and moving away from doing just packs, we are awarding Platinum!

Open Series:

Format: Current Constructed

Entry: 500 Plat

1st Place: 20 Open Points 10,000 Platinum
2nd Place: 15 Open Points 5,000 Platinum
3rd-4th Place: 12 Open Points 2,500 Platinum (each)
5th-8th Place: 8 Open Points 1,250 Platinum (each)
9th-16th Place: 4 Open Points 500 Platinum (each)
17th-32nd Place: 2 Open Points
Participation: 1 Open Point
Raffles will be conducted during the broadcast for all participants.
We are introducing an entry fee with this Season, however, 100% of all entry fees go directly back into the prize pool for this Season’s Opens and Invitational. Along with that, prize support will be raised if attendance is high for each particular event. Prize support WILL NOT BE LOWERED.

HeavyHitter Invitational:

Format: Constructed TBD

Entry: Free (Invite Only)

1st Place: 15,000 Platinum
2nd Place: 7,500 Platinum
3rd-4th Place: 3,000 Platinum
5th-8th Place: 1,500 Platinum
9th-16th Place: 500 Platinum
(These are the guaranteed bottom-line payouts for the Invitational. Any additional earnings from the Open Series entry fees will be added to the Invitational prize pool.)

We are also pleased to announce all of the event dates for Season 1! The invites to the Invitational will be given out to the top 16 Open Point holders after the final Open of the season.

Open Series Season 1:

Open: Oberon – January 24th 2015
Open: Briggadon – February 7th 2015
Open: Titania – March 7th 2015
Open: Kog’Tepetl – April 4th 2015
Open: Yazukan – May 2nd 2015
HeavyHitter Invitational I – June 6th 2015
(All dates are subject to change due to such things as set releases or serious game bugs.)

We hope you are all as excited as we are for these changes. If you have any questions feel free to ask us for clarification on twitter @hextechstv or in the forums on Hextechs.tv

Great however January's VIP will likely be January 23rd-25th since the VIP weekend is the last weekend of the month that has a Friday-Sunday.

12-11-2014, 11:24 PM
Yeah maybe change the January date?

12-12-2014, 12:13 AM
Super excited. Looking forward to seeing more of these types of tourneys

12-12-2014, 04:01 AM
Isn't the last weekend of January the 30th through the 1st?

12-12-2014, 04:54 AM
Yes, but Sunday is February, so VIP weekend will probably be on the weekend of the 24th-25th

12-16-2014, 07:36 AM
Yeah, its the last full weekend of a month. So if Sunday is the 1st of the next month, it will be the week prior.

The date of the january tournament has officially been changed to the 17th. Thanks for bringing that to our attention, better safe than sorry
