It is now April, but it's finally here. March Madness/April Absurdity!
In case you missed the reveal stream, please feel free to check it out for the laughs.
Without further ado, your bracket:
Most of this info can be found in the original blog post, but for consolidation purposes here are the rules:
This is a 64 player, single elimination bracket. Conquest, best of 5 with a ban and open decklists (mirroring our Pro series). Everything will be run through Battlefy which will be set up this weekend. We would like to try to get through a round in no more than 3 days, so please continue to schedule your matches in an ongoing fashion as they become available. Score reporting and bans will be done in Battlefy itself. Please forward any match disputes or questions to the board.
Battlefy Bracket opens on Monday 4/13
You have until Thursday evening 4/16 to submit your lineup. This lineup is locked for the duration of the tournament. In the event of nerfs next week we will extend the submission deadline to Friday 4/17 and anyone who already submitted can resubmit. If nerfs happen after the start of the tournament there will be no substitutions allowed. Use the broken cards at your own peril!
Friday 4/17 tournament play will open.
We will try to stream as much as possible. Please get in touch with Donde if you are playing at a typical stream time (8 PM ET - 10 PM ET any day and afternoons on the weekend).
There are prizes!
1st Place - 22 Packs
2nd Place - 15 Packs

Winner of Bracket Challenge - 7 Packs
100% Perfect Bracket - Donde buys your next expansion and Mako buys you the smaller expansion.
Did we say Bracket Challenge? Yes we did. Whether you are participating or not you are invited to join our Bracket pool completely free of charge. Use the link in the #thl-march-madness channel in our Discord to grab an editable PDF copy of the bracket and fill it out. Save it with your THL/Discord name and send it to firstname.lastname@example.org. If you have never done an NCAA bracket before, this is how it works:
You get 1 point for every first round matchup you correctly guessed.
2 points for every second round matchup
4 points for every third round and so on.
The participant with the most points wins! In the event of a tie the tiebreaker will be whoever guess the most total games across the entirety of the bracket.
If we're still tied after that and it's only 2 people we will have a 1v1 HearthStone Cage Match for the prize. You bring 1 deck each and play. No bans, totally blind pick.
Feel free to reach out to the board or specifically Donde with any questions. Good luck out there in the tavern!
