Free Agent Guide
So you want to play in Team Hearth League or Selfless Hero League? Well you are in the right spot. Follow these steps to maximize your chances to get signed by a team!
- First thing you will want to do is get registered. From the home page, scroll down and click on Registration. From there, just fill out the forms to get registered. Make sure that all your info is accurate so the your Player Rating (more on that later) is accurate. Make sure to register in both leagues because you never know when someone will need you to sub.
- The next step is to get connected. There is a very active discord community and FaceBook group that we use. To get into these, scroll down near the bottom of the home page and there is a scrolling banner with invites to both the discord and the FaceBook group. While you are there, you can subscribe to us on YouTube and follow us on Twitch and see some of our past events and matches. Once you are in, start talking to people. Meeting new people and making yourself known is the best way to land yourself on a team.
- If it’s the offseason, check the pinned post in the FB group. There is a big free agent thread every offseason where free agents advertise themselves to potential captains. This is one of the most important steps to finding a team as most free agents find a team during the offseason. This is where you will want to advertise yourself as as a new player and free agent. The best posts explain your history in Hearthstone, your PR (THL uses a PR cap per team so all teams are on equal footing, for more info on THL’s PR system, we recommend you read the rules as there is a bunch of info in there. The rules document can be found at the top of the page.), and what you will bring to your prospective teams.
- If we aren’t in the offseason, most teams will be locked up but occasionally teams have slots open up or look for one week subs. So when these opportunities arise, you will mostly find these pop up in the FaceBook page and these are great ways to get some THL experience.
- The last way, and one of the best ways, is to get involved with the tournaments we host usually every week. During the season we try to have a weekly tournament on Wednesday nights, aptly named: Wicked Wednesday. This is a great way to get your name out there to anyone looking for new players or subs. These will always be announced on the FaceBook page!
Teams tend to prioritize players active in the FaceBook group, discord, and our tournaments; so while we can’t guarantee you will get you signed to a team, these steps will significantly boost your chances at being seen and signed by a captain!
TL;DR: Stay active, participate, play Hearthstone!
