Introducing the Radiant Rumble!

On October 8th, at 9AM Pacific Time (6pm CEST), the Radiant Rumble will kick off in client. This Constructed Swiss tournament, with no entry fee and open to all players, is brought to you by the Radiant Physician himself, Minch (a real life radiant physician in addition to his in game persona).

I do want to spend a moment to talk about the Radiant Physician before discussing the tournament details to shed some light on Hex’s benefactor: Minch is not well known by the community as most of his community work and support for Hex has been behind the scenes, but he is one of the earliest supporters of the game (one of the few who can claim to be a pre-Kickstarter community member) and the game would not be where it is today without his involvement. In addition to supporting the game, he is a player. Hex was his first TCG, but he has been actively battling (including many of us) in reaching cosmic last season. A few of us have had the opportunity to meet him at various Hex events and I am sure more of the community will get to know him at future gatherings like GenCon. As both a player and a community member, Minch wanted to give us a reason to rumble in October.

The tournament will happen in client and will be under the “special” tab in the battlegrounds. The Swiss tournament will have rounds appropriate for the number of players that enter and will break to a top 8 constructed finals.

Prizes:

1st place: $2,000, Radiant Rumble Sleeves
2nd place: $1,000, Radiant Rumble Sleeves
3rd-4th: $500, Radiant Rumble Sleeves
5th-8th: $250, Radiant Rumble Sleeves

Boosters will be sent to players from the FiveShards account.

That’s right, if you are in the top 32, you take home these sweet sleeves:
