Hearthstone Global Games - Singapore vs Chinese Taipei

Singapore is making another bid for esports glory at tonight’s Hearthstone Global Games group stage deciders. The tournament opens with a showdown between Team Singapore and Team Chinese Taipei at 8:30PM, followed by three other match-ups every 90 minutes thereafter.

  • 8:30PM — Singapore vs Chinese Taipei
  • 10:00PM — Hong Kong vs United Kingdom

The winners of tonight’s group stage deciders will advance to the HGG Playoffs at BlizzCon 2018 in November, comprising of eight top national teams. A US$152,000 prize pool has been reserved for the eight finalists, with the grand champion taking home a team share of US$50,000 — that works out to US$12,500 per player (approx. S$207,495).
