In the first part of the competition, contestants are tasked with creating a brand new 1v1 melee map or nominating an existing one of their own design. Any entry must not have been used for any previous Hive contest. Hop over to the Arena and join the fray!

Once the map pool has been chosen, the preliminary rounds will commence. The top 4 players from last year's tournament will be invited along with 4 more selected through 4 open qualifiers, culminating in an 8-player battle for the title in December.
NOTE: the preliminary format is not finalized and is subject to change. Contestants will be notified appropriately.

Participants in the Hive Cup tournament will be competing for a prize pool of €500+, as well as an eternal place in Warcraft and Hive history!

Flickering candlelight bounces off the contractor's potions, sending flashes of red and blue across the table.
Your eyes catch the alluring glimmer of gold coins, no doubt purposefully placed to divide your attention as the man describes your forthcoming journey.

Treasure hunter. Graverobber. Adventurer.
You've grown used to the names, the odd looks as you make your way through the tavern before and after each job.
Looks of bemusement, sometimes contempt. Always of awe at the stories they've heard. Of the places you've been.

You swipe the parchment from the contractor's table, eager to once again venture into the unknown and loot the treasure chest.
The gold distracted you. You didn't listen to the quest's description.
As you leave the tavern you remain unaware of the creature that awaits in the depths of the dungeon...
