hearthstone Hearthstone: Europe Spring Preliminary Update

2 posts in this topic


In the European Winter Prelinary, we reported that the first day was a bad one for the notable players. This time around, they are having a far better time of it.

The format is double elimination, rather than Swiss, which means that winning in the early rounds is crucial. If you lose in round one in double elimination with 128 players, you have to fight through nine more rounds to reach the top eight. The winners only have to go through six more (so seven wins if you count the one they just won). While that is not ideal in some regards, it is much easier for scheduling.

As with the previous preliminary, there were many notable first round casualties. This time around however, those who survived the early rounds have carried on doing well. Crane, Loyan, Thijs, and AKA Wonder are all just one win away from qualifying for the Europe Spring Championship next month. There are a lot of players left in the lower bracket, but among those needing three wins to qualify are Ostkaka, Faramir, Sjow, Nicslay, StanCifka, and Cipher. The full bracket can be found here.

Today's broadcast starts at 2pm CEST on PlayHearthstone's Twitch channel. At the end of the day we will know which players have made it through.

      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?

      ShiftCon has arrived for the second time in the Hearthstone tavern!
      It was announced yesterday that we wouldn't be getting the Heroic Tavern Brawl this week. The possible dates for it are either October 26 (next week) or November 2.
      Instead, we are getting a repeat brawl: ShiftCon. Your deck is filled with Shifter Zerus and some random class spells, while you start at 3 mana. This Tavern Brawl offers a good balance of skill and luck, since you have to decide if you should play your transformed Zerus at the given turn (if you can) or hold on to it.
      With the preparations for the Heroic Tavern Brawl underway, it was expected that we would be getting a repeat brawl this week. This is the 71th Tavern Brawl.

      Blizzard have released an infographic on their blog outlining a series of interesting Arena stats.
      In the Americas region, Alumn scored the highest average from 1 Jan 2016 until 1 September with an average of 7.62. Hafu (playing as BattlePants) was second, and Kripp was third. When you consider that Hafu and Kripp play almost exclusively while streaming, and Hafu didn't play the top three classes for a while because she found them to be not challenging enough, these are spectacular achievements.
      In the Europe region, Caesar topped the list with an average of 8.09
      The impressive thing from the data is the sheer magnitude of the popularity of the game. 

      There were also some other spectacular stats. It is worth checking them all out for yourself on the official blog.
