Welcome everyone, to the website's first ever card game. Hearthstone! Let's Play Live are happy to announce our support of Hearthstone with two separate divisions, fighting it out for a share of $750.

We are aiming to bring some consistent competition for players of all skill levels from seasoned players through to people who want to try their hand at competition for the first time. Players can join at any time through out the season to kick off their campaign. The ladder is open to all residents of Australia and New Zealand.

We are really excited to bring Hearthstone some competition, and plan for the game to grow. With sufficient numbers, we will introduce higher divisions to split up the skill levels and enable fair and equal matches as well as providing a pathway for players to advance through.

Ladder Format
The Hearthstone ladder is an Elo (rating) based ladder. Players must update their available match times in their team profiles. The system will then auto assign you matches with other players based on your availability, team settings and Elo. Based on the Elo (rating) of you and your opponent, you will gain and lose Elo (rating) proportionally.
Every player starts at 1400 Elo, and gains and loses Elo each match. If you are versing someone on higher Elo than you, you will lose less Elo for losing, and they will gain less Elo for winning. Conversly, if you win against a higher Elo opponent, you will gain more Elo than normal, and they will lose more Elo than normal.
You will be assigned 3 matches per 12 days.

Series Format
  • Players play each match with 3 decks.
  • 1 deck per class.
  • Classes must be declared to the opponent at the start of each match.
  • Win 1 game with each deck to win the match.
  • Once a class wins it is removed from play for the match for that player.
  • The player who loses may change their class or keep it for the next game.

Finals
Finals will be active from the 26th of July with the top 8 of the ladder at the end of the season qualifying. They will play in a single elimination bracket in the same format as the ladder.

Bans and Picks
Before each match starts, both players list 4 different heroes they intend to play one after the other, taking turns. After both players have listed 4 heroes, the player who is positioned lower on the ladder bans one of their opponent's heroes, then the player positioned higher on the ladder bans a hero.
