The quarantine may have put majority of our daily routine in check but online tournaments like the Hearthstone Masters can and will push through without violating any safety policies.
In an announcement a couple of weeks ago, the upcoming Masters Tour this weekend will be an online-only Masters Tour. That said, over 300 invited players from over 40 countries will still be joining as they compete for the Masters Tour trophy, a shot at becoming a Grandmaster, and their share of the USD $3,000,000 total prize purse for 2020!
In line with putting the safety of everyone, from the players to the staff and casters, there will be no broadcast of the event, so Hearthstone fans will be saddened to hear that there won’t be an immediate way to stream the matches as they happen.
