The HCT Summer Championship took place from 13-15 October 2017. The top four players advanced to the World Championship in January.
After three days of competition the winner was Surrender, who joins Planet Odd teammate Hoej at the World Championship. Surrender won a tense final 3-2 against Orange, with the final game being a Highlander Priest mirror. In that game, Orange chose to mill Surrender for five cards to attempt to burn the combo, but the attempt failed. The VoD of the final can be found here.
Listed below are the other finishing positions, and the number of packs you will receive for picking each player as your champion in the "Choose your Champion" promotion.

For the first time, the Hearthstone World Champion won't be determined at BlizzCon.
It was noticed that European venues weren't getting much love in this year's Hearthstone Championship Tour, but it turns out that the World Championship finals will take place in Amsterdam!
HCT will finish its journey in the Beurs van Berlage Conference centre, lasting from Thursday 18th January 2018 until Sunday 21st January 2018.
Anyone who physically attends the World Championship will get the following card back, while they will also be able to participate in on-site tournaments:
The tournament's format will be the same as all other seasonal Hearthstone Championships. 16 players will fight for a total prize pool of $1,000,000 USD! Eight players have qualified so far from the Winter and Spring Championships: Ant, DocPwn, Fr0zen, Hoej, Kolento, Neirea, SamuelTsao and ShtanUdachi. Four more players will qualify from the Summer Championship, that is currently going on this weekend. And the last four players will be seeded from the highest HCT point earners from each region (Last Call slots).
A question remains: without the World Championship this year, will there be any e-sports events at BlizzCon? According to its schedule, the answer is yes! There will be a Hearthstone Inn-vitational, where four teams of three Hearthstone personalities each will compete against each other in various formats; there is also the NA Tavern versus Tavern tournament.
