For whatever reason, the International e-Sports Federation (IeSF) World Championship Hearthstone tournament will only allow male competitors. As such, the Finnish qualifier tournament for this championship will not allow women to compete.
"Since the IeSF World Championship Hearthstonetournament in Baku is male only, we can only accept male participants in the Finnish qualifier," a statement reads on the Hearthstone IeSF qualifier page.
This is to prevent potential problems if a woman eliminates a man in the Finland tourney, as she would not be allowed to compete in the world championship anyway.
The IeSF world championship separates tournaments between men and women to begin with, which is kind of odd. Men can compete in Dota 2, StarCraft 2, Hearthstone, and Ultra Street Fighter IV. Women can compete in StarCraft 2 and Tekken Tag Tournament. Um, why can't men and women play against one another in these competitions? Why do they have to be separate?
