Our HCT Summer Championship 2017 guide contains deck lists, match schedules, stream information and results.

The final stage of the 2017 Hearthstone Championship Tour (HCT) takes place in California this weekend, and it's shaping up to be a bit of a belter. Sixteen players from all around the world will be competing for their piece of a pretty impressive $250,000 prize pool, as well as a limited spot at the Hearthstone World Championship. Lots to play for, in other words, and so you can expect the lot of them to be playing at their very best.

In our complete guide to the HCT Summer Championship 2017, we've got a schedule of who's playing who and when, how the competitors have been separated into individual groups, a stream so you can follow all the action live along with us, and a results page to stay on top of how the tournament's playing out. We'll be tucking details of the latter behind spoiler tags, so nothing gets ruined for you if you're catching up on all the action out of hours.

On that front, we'll also try to track down any video on demand (VOD) that shows up so you can watch any matches you might have missed out on. If there's anything else that you'd like to see added to this article, just let us know in the comments and we'll do our best to accommodate it when we next update our guide nearer the start of the tournament.

HCT Summer Champions 2017: Format

The tournament finals will be conducted on the basis of a single elimination playoff within each group. There'll be four players in each group, and each match will be a best-of-five encounter using the Conquest format.

This means that players must win three games in their match-up using a different deck each time. Players cannot use the same winning deck twice, but a player can use a losing deck more than once if they wish.

There will be a single hero ban system in place as well, which means that each player actually needs to bring four different decks to the tournament, in case one of their heroes is banned by their opponent.

Players will know which classes their opponent has available to them, but they won't know which class has been picked for any given match-up until both players have selected their deck.

HCT Summer Championship 2017: Participants and Groups

There are sixteen players taking part in this tournament, and they've been separated into four distinct groups. Here's how the competitors are being matched up against one another.
