The Europe Spring Preliminary takes place on the weekend of May 14-15, where the final eight players will gain qualification into the Europe Spring Championship next month.

Friday 13th won't be unlucky for 32 of the players in the Tavern Heroes Tournament. Players have been qualifying at local events throughout the spring season for this event, and all of the qualifiers will play in the Tavern Heroes Tournament until 32 remain. Those players will gain entry into the Spring Preliminary, alongside the 128 players who qualified on points.

There are many notable players in the Preliminary. DrHippi, Nicslay, Cereza, pokrovac, Bunnyhoppor, Diggen, and Tars all return after their efforts in the Winter Championship, which was won by Naiman.

The list is also full of top tier pro players. Rdu, Hoej, Xixo, Pavel, Kolento, Thijs, AKAWonder, Cipher, Sjow, Crane, Neirea, StanCifka, Blackout, Ignite, Legendaren, Loyan, Laughing, Ness, Modernleper, Senfglas, Nick Chipper, Greensheep, Superjj, Powder, and Tixuty all jump out off the page at a glance. There are other players that are also very strong, who are possibly less well known, that I have omitted from the list. If you want to check if your favourite qualified, you can see their points here.


The Preliminary will be covered in English on PlayHearthstone's Twitch channel. Blizzard have provided a list of streams in other languages, here. The same page also lists the locations from where the players will be competing. If you want to go along to watch from one of those locations, then you will be welcome. If you participate in a side event at a location live on the day, you'll unlock the Power Core card back just for taking part.

The streams will cover the event from 1400-2200 CEST on the 14th and 15th of May. Sottle, deck guide writer for Icy Veins, is among the casting crew.

      The team has finally responded to the community's concerns on the new Shaman legendary minion.
      Two weeks after The Witchwood's release, Team 5 has addressed the issues surrounding Shudderwock. Its animation will go faster and it will cap at 20 Battlecries. Hopefully, it will be less of a nuisance now. Lifedrinker will also receive a bump on its animation speed.
      I assume the fix will go live on April 26 along with the Monster Hunt.

      Recently, our players have had feedback regarding the Shaman card, Shudderwock. We understand that the length of its Battlecry animation and other animations spawned from its Battlecry can be frustrating. In a future update, we will be doubling the animation speed of Shudderwock’s Battlecry so it will lessen the impact on the overall pacing of your current Hearthstone match. In addition, the amount of Battlecries Shudderwock can reproduce will be capped at 20.
      We will also be speeding up the animation of Lifedrinker for similar reasons.
      Thank you for your feedback, and we’ll see you in the Tavern.

      The rewards are different for each rank. You receive the chest for the best rank you achieve, so do not be afraid of dropping a rank. Additionally, after reaching a milestone rank (ranks in bold), you will not fall below them that season again. This means that if you lose a game at rank 15 with 0 stars, you will not drop to rank 16, but rather stay at rank 15 with no stars.
      Rank Reward 25-21 None 20 1 golden common, 5 dust 19 1 golden common, 10 dust 18 1 golden common, 15 dust 17 1 golden common, 20 dust 16 1 golden common, 25 dust 15 1 golden common, 1 golden rare, 5 dust 14 1 golden common, 1 golden rare, 10 dust 13 1 golden common, 1 golden rare, 15 dust 12 1 golden common, 1 golden rare, 20 dust 11 1 golden common, 1 golden rare, 25 dust 10 2 golden commons, 1 golden rare, 5 dust 9 2 golden commons, 1 golden rare, 10 dust 8 2 golden commons, 1 golden rare, 15 dust 7 2 golden commons, 1 golden rare, 20 dust 6 2 golden commons, 1 golden rare, 25 dust 5 2 golden commons, 1 golden epic, 5 dust 4 2 golden commons, 1 golden epic, 10 dust 3 2 golden commons, 1 golden epic, 15 dust 2 2 golden commons, 1 golden epic, 20 dust 1 2 golden commons, 1 golden epic, 25 dust Legend 3 golden commons, 1 golden epic You also receive a card back for winning 5 games during the season.
