So Blizzard gave us the opportunity to choose and root for a player during the HS World Championship 2016.
You win in-game prizes for every win they get. Everyone gets a pack for just picking one of the contenders.
So who's your pick?
The schedule for this year's BlizzCon was just released and among the usual "what's next" and "state of the game" panels some of the more interesting ones will surely be the Diablo and Blizzard anniversary streams. Apart from that there isn't any specific time allocated for "big reveals", but then there wouldn't be even if there were reveals to be had, and they may just come in the opening ceremony anyway!
Attention explorers from the Broken Shore to the batteground of Braxis: it’s time to discover what wonders await you at BlizzCon 2016! Unfold this year’s map and schedule, and take a look at all the panels, esports tournaments, and other events taking place at the show this Friday, November 4 and Saturday, November 5.
Check out just a few of the highlights below, and keep your eye on BlizzCon.com in the weeks ahead for even more details on the events and activities we have planned!

We’ll be broadcasting the opening ceremony and this year's esports tournaments—including the StarCraft II WCS Global Finals, World of Warcraft Arena World Championship, Hearthstone World Championship, Heroes of the Storm Fall Championship, and Overwatch World Cup Finals—right here on www.blizzcon.com for free. You won’t want to miss a minute of this year’s action!

Blizzard will be celebrating Diablo's 20 year anniversary during BlizzCon. The party is taking place just outside the BlizzCon grounds and you won't need a pass to enter. At the same time this is also Blizzard's 25th anniversary.
25 years ago, a small group of gamers set out to create the kinds of game experiences they loved playing—and Blizzard Entertainment was born. Since then, the team at Blizzard has transported millions of people around the world to fantastic worlds of fantasy and science fiction—including Diablo’s Sanctuary, which first invited players to descend into the terrifying labyrinth beneath the Tristram Cathedral 20 years ago in 1996!
Please join us in celebrating these anniversaries on Friday, November 4 from 8 p.m. until 10 p.m. in the Grand Plaza outside the Anaheim Convention Center during BlizzCon 2016. This event is open to everyone, whether you’re attending the convention or just happen to be in the neighborhood, and admission is free. We’ll also have some great food, special anniversary-themed drinks, entertainment—and even a surprise or two.
