Hearthstone's growth as a competitive title has been meteoric, and with a number of small events and show matches aside from its massive BlizzCon outing, the first international major tournament in the franchise will take place in the HomeStory Cup format, as eight of the game's most competitive players will face each other in Dennis 'TaKe' Gehlen's Kreffeld apartment.

Aside from Hearthstone, SC2 returns once more to the venue, with 16 players. One more player is yet to be annouced, but for now the line-up consists of players solely from Europe and Korea, and also sees Ilyes 'Stephano' Satouri make a brief return to the competitive SC2 scene. The prize pool of $30,000 will be split between either game, garnering the eventual 1st place finishers a total of $8,000 each.

The full line-ups for both games can be found on the official homepage.

The tournament will take place between March 7-9.
