The PGL Tavern Tales will hold its 2016 Summer edition from July 29th-31st, once again sporting a $25,000 prize pool and offering 43 Hearthstone Championship Tour points.
After a successful spring edition in February, which was won by Romanian player Marius “xTracKyStyLe” Nistor, the PGL Tavern Tales crown is ready to be passed on. As before, 32 card-slingers from around the world will travel to PGL’s studios in Bucharest this summer to compete in a three-day LAN event.
