* Hearthstone is a strategic card game developed and run by Blizzard Entertainment.
Lobi Cup is an online event plan for users to invite game players through Lobi and hold a PVP game tournament.
This plan provides game players with the opportunity to try their wings in a game that they normally play. Players can join online for free. Through an event, players can meet and communicate through chat with each other, which will revitalize the core gamer community. Supporting live broadcast of top battles of the tournament, it allows players who do not join Lobi Cup to watch battles.
According to a survey of participants of the first Hearthstone Lobi Cup held on Friday, December 23, 2016, 100% users said that they want to participate in the tournament again and about half of users said that they had new friends.
Lobi Cup is held using the special Lobi Tournament function for smoothly running a tournament from calling for participation to managing the tournament chart. Without the need to implement SDK, Lobi Tournament offers auto updates on a tournament chart and an environment where users can review who they are playing with and contact their opponents through private chat."
Through this, Lobi will further contribute to providing valuable service to game developers by boosting the excitement for PVP game users.
