You will now be able to lock classes for your participants whatever the match format (Conquest, Last Deck Standing etc.). Here’s how it works:
- Just enable the feature in the “Settings” -> “Hearthstone” tab and choose the amount of picks and bans. For example, a Best of 3 Conquest match requires 4 Picks and 1 Ban.
- Your registration process will then require the participants to add the classes they’ll use.
- Confirm the classes you’ll use during the competition when registering
- In your dashboard, ban your opponent’s class(es) before each match
