Hearthstone‘s Wild format, which allows players to select from every card in the game, is getting its own official tournament.
Blizzard revealed on the official Hearthstone eSports Twitter that the top 64 players from Ranked Wild in May will be entered in the first official Wild Tournament. The developer promised to share more details in the future.

Last year, Blizzard split Hearthstone into two formats: Wild and Standard. Standard limited players to classic cards and a selection of recent expansions, while Wild allowed players to create decks using any card in the game, leading to some overpowered and crazy decks. So far, all official tournaments have used the Standard format, but it looks like it’s finally time to give Wild a turn in the spotlight.
Last month, Blizzard released the Journey to Un’Goro expansion for the game that introduced 135 new cards to game, including the brand new Quest Card.
Hearthstone is available now on PC, iOS, and Android.
