The four groups for the group stage of the Hearthstone Championship Tour Finals have been announced. You can also win free The Grand Tournament packs by cheering on your favourite contestant.

The HCT regional and last call champions were split evenly into four groups of four, with each region being represented in each group. Out of all the groups, Group A looks like it's going to be the most interestings. The BlizzCon opening week will begin on October 26 with the Group Stage.

Meanwhile, you can vote for who you think is going to be the 2016 Hearthstone champion and win free TGT packs. The first voting period has already begun and it will last until October 25 at 11:59 p.m. PDT. You will win a single TGT pack just for participating in each voting period. Afterwards, you will receive one additional card pack from The Grand Tournament for every best-of-seven match your champion wins once chosen. You can earn up to 6 free packs if you participate from the first voting period and up to 4 packs, if you participate in the second voting period (beginning after the group stage and ending on November 3).

The sixteen players that are competing in the World Championship have qualified from one of the Season Championships or Last Call Invitationals and will be representing the Americas, Europe, Asia-Pacific, and China. They travelled a long road and faced some of the best players in the world along the way, but now they’ve arrived at the pinnacle of Hearthstone competition. The players have been divided into four groups and will play out the group stage during BlizzCon Opening Week. From there, two players from each group will advance to participate in the single-elimination bracket at BlizzCon

Group A - Cydonia, ThijsNL, Handsomeguy, JasonzhouCydonia, ThijsNL, Handsomeguy, Jasonzhou

Voting Periods

You may cast your vote starting now until October 25 at 11:59 p.m. PDT, when Opening Week begins. Voting will then be closed during Opening Week. If you happen to miss the first voting period, don’t fret! We’ll re-open voting after Opening Week has concluded and let anyone that missed out vote for a champion before BlizzCon begins. The second voting period will close at 11:59 p.m. on November 3, prior to the start of the BlizzCon bracket stage.

If you have already voted during the first voting period, you will not be able to vote again during the second voting period as your vote will have already been locked in. You are only eligible to receive additional packs for any matches your champion wins after you have chosen them. If you vote during the first voting period, you can earn up to 6 total packs (including your participation pack) depending on how well your champion performs. If you vote during the second voting period, you can earn up to 4 total packs (including your participation pack).

Choose your champion carefully!


Once you’ve selected your champion, be sure to tune in to all of the action on our official Hearthstone Twitch channel, and discuss the tournament using the #HCT hashtag on Twitter and Facebook.

      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!
