Everyone’s favourite free-to-play collectible card game Hearthstone will hold its 2014 World Championship during Blizzcon this November and as PC Gamer notes, Blizzard have now announced the prizes winners can look forward to.
The total prize pool is $250,000, with the outright winner receiving $100,000. Second place comes with $50,000 and the third and fourth places acquire $15,000 each. Places fifth through eighth will get $7,600, while places ninth through sixteenth will get $5,000.
And while $250,000 is a drop in the ocean compared to DOTA 2′s current $6,756,768 prize pool, it’s still pretty decent. If you’d like to learn more about Hearthstone‘s 2014 World Championships and its qualifying rounds, you can read all about it on the official site
