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.

      The single-player adventure, introduced along with the Rastakhan's Rumble expansion, is now available in all regions.
      The Rumble Run is very similar to the Dungeon Run and the Monster Hunt, in the sense that you will face eight opponents and you will build your deck as you progress using card bundles, passives and powerful minions exclusive to this game mode.
      Your hero will always be Rikkar, a young Troll champion eager to prove himself. In the beginning of your run, you will be offered three different Shrines (more on them in the next paragraph) from three different classes. This initial decision basically equals to you picking a Class for this run. The other eight classes will be your opponents.

      Shrines exist as minions on the board and they have powerful effects. Each class has three different Shrines and each starting Shrine comes with a complementary deck of 10 minions that synergise with it. When a Shrine dies, it goes dormant for 3 turns and its effect isn't active until it comes back to life.
      Subsequently, you will build your deck using card bundles, neutral passive abilities and class-specific minions exclusive to the Rumble Run.
      If you finish the Rumble Run once with any class, you will earn this card back:

      Good luck on this new adventure and we'll soon have a detailed guide on it!

      This new Tavern Brawl features the deck recipes from Rastakhan's Rumble.
      With Rastakhan's Rumble being released last week, we were bound to get a Tavern Brawl like this. So pick a hero and you get the premade Rastakhan's Rumble deck recipe for the class you chose.
      Here are the decks:
      Druid: Feral Frenzy Hunter: Animal Instincts Mage: Power of the Dragonhawk Paladin: Shirvallah's Chosen Priest: Surrender to Madness Rogue: Cursed Crew Shaman: Big Bad Voodoo Warlock: Reckless Ritual (Discard) Warrior: Wings of War (Dragons) Good luck!
