Important DGL Hearthstone Details

The 2014 Telkom Do Gaming League (DGL) Hearthstone (HS) Summer Leg is in full swing with just under 300 individual competitors battling it out across the board.

Unfortunately, there have been a number of misconceptions since the start of the leg on 4 February, which Do Gaming would like to clarify below:


• Each Hearthstone match follows the set Rules and Regulations of the HS DGL and is such always contested under best-of-three format.


• Each player is allowed to use any class to build a deck of their choosing for the first game in the best-of-three series.
• After each game, the loser must start the next game with a new deck of a new class while the winner must continue to use the 'winning' class [winners may make changes to the deck after each win] until it is defeated.
• This could result in a player winning a matchup using a single deck.
• Sharing 'deck lists' is by gentleman's agreement and is not mandatory.


Both players must submit/accept scores on the respective match page.

NB: Match weeks

• Players are reminded, with the exception of the mandatory 'Pick n' Play', that there are TWO matches to be played per match week, not one.
• The end of match week one saw nearly 40 draws, all of which were because of games not played, generally because players were unaware that there are two games per week.
• Players must play two scheduled games per match week unless instructed to do otherwise.

Entries for the Hearthstone Telkom Do Gaming League (DGL) Insta-Clash Cup (ICC) Valentines Editionclosed at 68, more than double that of the initial HS ICC back in 2013.

Registrations include November's Insta-Clash runner-up Ben 'Noxville' Steenhuisen as well as Do Gaming Editor Robert 'GrIdL0cK' Clegg, while reigning champion Sakkie 'RandomHero' Basson is notably absent and will not be defending his title.

The tournament will follow DGL Rules and Regulations and be contested under a single-elimination, best-of-three rule set.

The series will span over the course of two weeks with one match every two days, with the grand finale scheduled to take place on 3 March.

The final brackets will be released later this week while the competition officially kicks off on Monday, 17 February.
