The culmination of the 2016 Hearthstone Championship Tour is nearly upon us. On November 5, one player will emerge as the 2016 Hearthstone World Champion at BlizzCon. Hearthstone’s Choose Your Champion will allow players to join in on the fun by selecting the player they think has the best shot to be crowned the 2016 world champion and earn in-game rewards with each victory throughout the tournament.
To participate in Choose Your Champion, players can click the “Choose Now” button and select the champion of their choice. During Opening Week and BlizzCon, players will be rewarded with card packs based on how well the player they select performs. Players will receive one card pack from The Grand Tournament for participating and one additional card pack from The Grand Tournament for every best-of-seven their champion wins.
Voting begins now and is open until October 25 at 11:59 p.m. PDT. There will be a second opportunity to vote after Opening Week has concluded that will close on November 3 at 11:59 p.m. PDT. Players that vote during the first voting period can earn up to six total packs (including the participation pack) depending on how well their champion performs. Players that vote during the second voting period can earn up to four total packs (including the participation pack).
