Hearthstone: Week Six Grandmasters Recap

Hearthstone Grandmasters

Week six of 2021’s Grandmasters Season 1 came to a close on Sunday, with NoHandsGamer, Rdu, and glory taking first place in their regions. If you missed last week’s GM, here’s a recap of the top 8 finishers that took place over the weekend, along with players in danger of relegation, and how much these 48 pros have earned during this Grandmasters season.

Relegation is determined via a point system in GM based around where you place each week. There is still a week left before playoffs, leaving players with another chance to fight for their spot in GM, but these players at the bottom of the leaderboard are dangerously close to losing their Grandmaster title: Impact, Briarthorn, and killinallday for the Americas region, AyRoK, Bunnyhoppor, Zhym, and Felkeine for Europe, and lastly there is Tyler, tom60229, Hi3, and lambyseries for Asia Pacific.

Placement point system:

  • 1st place earns 5 points
  • 2nd earns 4 points
  • 3rd– 4th earns 3 points
  • 5th-8th earns 2 points
  • 9th– 12th earns 1 point
  • 13th– 16th do not earn any points for the week.

Aside from titles and notoriety, another important reason why these 48 players have mastered deck matchups and mulligans over countless hours is for the prize money that comes with competing in Grandmasters. Unlike Masters tour where players only receive packs, these 7 GM weeks each give players a chance at earning a sizeable amount depending on their placements. 1st place earns $3,000, 2nd earns $2,500, 3rd– 4th earns $2,000, 5th-8th earns $1,500, 9th– 12th earns $1,000, and 13th– 16th earns $500.
