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?

For me it's basically "Pick your Thijs", just like a ton of the comments on the blogpost said. I don't know if he wins, but I like him and he is a good player for sure, so he could win a few matches for sure.

Agree we the mod above me.

Thijs is the only reasonable pick, since Likeabawss did not make it Kappa

I have to take the prediction home, and that leaves me with either Pavel, DrHippi or Naiman.

Pavel is good and a real hotshot player. But I can't sympathize him after seeing his performance on EU qualifiers because he got so disgustingly lucky.

DrHippi is consistent but does not shine that much. I think that he is that type of player who can totally dominate  the ladder but not high-roll through a tournament. They have a lot of games to play, though.

But I'll probably vote Naiman, because he is just a really cool guy, and he is technically Asian, and Asians are good at video games. Kappa.

The problem with choosing Pavel is that he might just play "too fast" again :D

I'm torn between Thijs and bbgungun. Thijs would be the most obvious pick, but I enjoyed bbgungun's games last weekend so I'd like to repay him by offering my very valuable online support in this event.

Thijs is the safest pick for me. He's going to win a little bit, hopefully he wins a lot!

Well, so far I'm glad I went with the BB! Still plenty is possible though as Thijs is definitely not out yet, even though he's up against one of the stronger participants.

Not sure if we're talking about Handsomeguy at this point, but I have to agree with Rdu about him. He is great player, but thanks to the tournament system , those achievements (three finals in regionals, 2 championships) is just overrated in my opinion. Also, he lost big against Cydonia, one og the underdogs of the tournament. 

Thijs losing to JasonZhou was definitely a surprise, especially thinking he is really comfortable with druid normally, and in that game, druid just screwed the whole game plan:(

Will we know before the tournament starts how many people have picked each contestant?

Not sure if they'll publish that, but I really hope they do. I don't see a reason for them not to, but perhaps they'll surprise us :p

So I voted for Thijs because he is good player and... well he's Dutch too. :p He's in the loser bracket now I'm hoping he can make a comeback!

I'm really impressed by Amnesiac btw. He's your typical American kid and putting his money where his mouth is. Will be rooting for him as well. :)

I wish there were more players from my home country to support! I don't see many Serbian players out there yet though :p

      Diablo’s 20th Anniversary will take place in the beginning of 2017 and it will be celebrated in all other Blizzard games. Let’s take a look at the special Diablo-themed Tavern Brawl planned for Hearthstone.
      During the release of the latest Hearthstone patch, a new Diabloesque card back was discovered. According to an article by Hearthpwn, where we found all this information, this card back is  tied to an upcoming Tavern Brawl called “[The] Dark Wanderer”.

      The chalk board, heroes, hero powers and some cards of minions, spells and secrets of this upcoming Brawl have been datamined and you can find them in the same Hearthpwn article. The two players will take on the roles of the Dark Wanderer and the Cow King, two figures we all recognise from Diablo II. Presumably, the card back will be rewarded after your first victory in the Brawl.
      We are expecting this new Tavern Brawl during the first weeks of January 2017 – just like the other Diablo celebrations in Blizzard games (most notably in World of Warcraft).
