Sights from the Hearthstone World Championship in Taiwan, Taipei.



The Hearthstone World Championship is upon us and the stadium housing it, to put it lightly,  is stunning. Reimagined as a massive stage (complete with digital video assets that react to what happens in the game) the Taipei Heping Basketball Gymnasium has transformed into the ultimate Hearthstone arena. 

Over the course of the week, sixteen players from all over the world will be competing for the lions share of $1,000,000 and the title of the 2019 HCT world Champion. Thanks to the photography efforts of renowned esports photographer Helena Kristiansson (@DeaziD), we can show you a glimpse of this incredible stage and event!
