hearthstone European Winter Premlinaries Details Announced

1 post in this topic


The 2016 European Winter Preliminaries take place this weekend to decide the eight players who will participate in the 2016 European Winter Championship. Blizzard have released the details of the times and places they will take place.


In our previous article, we mentioned the list of players was not final. Despite a few problems regarding some tournaments claiming to offer points that were not sanctioned, the top 128 players, plus those tied for 128th, plus 20 Tavern Heroes, will compete in the European Winter Premliminaries. The event will take place across twenty European venues and will be streamed in English, French, and Russian on Twitch.


Some of the big names competing are ThijsNL, RDU, Greensheep, Hoej, Superjj, and Xixo. There are plenty of other top players in the event, and it will be exciting to get the Road to Blizzcon properly under way. Our previous article highlights the point standings at the end of the season, and those standings are now final.


Blizzard take the time in the announcement to clarify that there will be more locations added in future seasons, after complaints that many players were going to have to spend excessive sums of money to take the seat they had earned.

      We have a new Tavern Brawl this week! Its name is Spellbook Duel.
      For this Brawl, you choose your class and then you pick 10 different cards to fill your deck. Instead of drawing cards each turn, you Discover a copy of a card from your deck. If you use card drawing mechanics, like Arcane Intellect, you don't actually draw from your deck. You will, in fact, get a 1-mana spell called Peruse, which again allows you to Discover a copy of a card from your deck.
      Obviously, there are a lot of possible deck combinations you can use to tackle this new Tavern Brawl. The first things that pop into mind are anything that contains Reno Jackson and Kazakus, as well as Jade Druid to extend the possibility of getting these precious Jade Idols. Once again, Mage is the clear winner of this Brawl with cards like Sorcerer's Apprentice, Arcane Intellect and Flamewaker.
      Bear in mind that some cards are not recommended, since they remove cards from your Discover pool. Examples are Fel Reaver and Tracking. Moreover, cards that put another card directly into play, like Mysterious Challenger and Mad Scientist, will also make your Discover pool smaller. Lastly, according to a Reddit user, Renounce Darkness won't deduct 1 mana from the cards you discover throughout the game.
      There are already a lot of disgusting decks for Spellbook Duel out there. We are waiting for your suggestions and any other useful info in the comments!
