This is something I feel has been lacking for in game. And its sad being able to have active tournaments for just conquest or last hero standing formats in both standard and wild options for a long time. It has been done and worked in other games in the past.
Hex which was created by the creators of the wowtcg card game when it existed were able to successfully add a tournament mode to the game this having a basic option for playing in this mode as oppose to a ladder mode would be so much more enjoyable. Even if your not climbing to the top of the ladder a basic 8 player tournament or 16 player format for this would be nice as a basic concept. Just to have it in game for practice they could do more with it but just having it available as a mode would breed so much more life into the game.
It would be nice to see it expanded further to open tournaments for qualifying for masters tour in game via in game tournament sign up as oppose to doing it through a third party service and dealing with the extra hassle. While its time consuming ect to participate in tournaments having the option for players who want to set aside that time for games would be a nice option. Its not a format for every players as standard event your looking at 1 hour rounds to allow people time to finish there games on average so often its a play then sit and wait format, but its still something there are people out there in the community that do show interest in that.
Its something for the people who want to focus on there actual skill set for competitive play. It keeps getting dodged as a optional game mode. Its a mode that really is sorely lacking currently. Conquest and Last Hero standing are the tournament formats used for GM's / Masters and Conquest and Last Hero standing are not the ladder formats so they lack the true skill options of hearthstone having those options in an ingame format would be so much better for overall play.
If its something that appeals to you bumps / likes might be a way to hopefully bring attention to it. If you dont like the idea of a tournament format this thread is not really for you. Hopefully the community can bring more attention to options for this kind of format.
Thanks to anyone who bothers to reply/like/comment ect.
