Hearthstone HCT Toronto March 2018 Tour Stop was played from 9th March to 11th March 2018 at the EGLX in Toronto, Canada. It was an open Hearthstone Championship Tour Stop, where 185 players competed for a $15,000 USD prize pool and HCT points.
In this post, I take a look at the decks and results of the tournament, including class distribution, archetypes, and lineups.
The start of the March 2018 ranked play season in Hearthstone has been eventful to say the least. With ranked play down for two days, followed by hundreds or thousands of players starting at one win away from legend rank, there have been severe concerns as to how legend ranks will work out in the new season, as it is a crucial part of gaining HCT points for competitive players.
Players have attempted to analyze the situation, and some advice that has went viral is that you should not play the game at all once you reach legend, because matchmaking does not work properly. Alas, this advice seems unintuitive.
