The seven players who will be invited to Insomnia 58 for the $30,000 Hearthstone Truesilver Championship, alongside champion Ness, were decided through at The Sacred Trial invitational qualifier on June 28-29.

As reported previously, the players were divided into four groups and the winners of each group qualified immediately. The format was best of five Last Hero Standing, with a ban. The group standings were as follows:

Group A:   Ostkaka (4-0),   Eloise (3-1),   Boar Control (2-2),   Lifecoach (0-3),   Ek0p (0-3)

Group B:   Naiman (4-0),   Powder (3-1),   StrifeCro (2-2),   Thijs (2-2),   Orange (0-4)

Group C:   Firebat (3-0),   Xixo (3-1),   Chakki (2-2),   Zalae (1-3),   SuperJJ (0-3)

Group D:   Gaara (3-1),   Dog (3-1),   Hoej (2-2),   Rdu (1-3),   AKA Wonder (1-3)

The matches between Ek0p and Lifecoach, and Firebat and SuperJJ  were not played, as they would have had no bearing on the standings.

The second and third placed players in each group then played a single elimination event to decide the remaining three places. The players who came through with two straight wins were Chakki and Xixo. This left Eloise and Dog to play off for third place, and the final invite.

In the final match, Eloise took a 2-0 lead and looked to be headed to victory. She matched up against Dog's Aggro Shaman with first her Dragon Warrior, and then her Zoo. Surprisingly she lost both games, which set up a Tempo Mage vs Shaman game. This time, she managed to complete her victory, and qualified for the main event. Dog was runner-up at Insomnia 57 and it remains to be seen if he will now travel to enter in August.

Of the twenty players in the qualifying event, all twenty brought Shaman. Eighteen brought Warrior, and eighteen brought Warlock. All of the top twelve players brought all three of those classes. 

The VOD of the second day is available here.

      Aleco walks through a series of simple early-game decisions while playing an Unstable Evolution deck.
      "Simple early game decisions" and "multi-turn decisions" are the two most common requests I've been receiving since the start of this series, so I decided to do an episode that tackles both! In today's episode I navigate a series of relatively simple early-game decisions against an aggressive Hunter start with my Unstable Evolution Shaman deck.
      If you have any requests for future episodes of "What's the Move?", please feel free to reach out to me here on Icy Veins or via Twitter @Aleco_P. I prefer to always fulfill requests for new episodes if possible, and always love hearing feedback from the community which can help me improve on this series in the future. Don't be shy!

      Choose your champion for the upcoming Hearthstone World Championships to win free K&C packs!
      The biggest Hearthstone tournament of the year, the Hearthstone World Championship, is just around the corner! To help build up excitement for the tournament, players may now select a champion from among the 16 world championship competitors. Each round your champion advances in the tournament will reward you with more Kobolds & Catacombs packs. You can win up to 6 packs of K&C for selecting the winner of the tournament, so choose wisely! Once you've locked in your choice it can not be changed.
      Anyone with a Battle.net account can select a champion for free until midnight on January 17th (Pacific Standard Time), and there's no downside to selecting the wrong champion. All you need to do is follow this link and select one of the 16 competitors. Personally, I'm sticking with Purple because he won me 3 packs at the Summer Championship and appears to be the favorite to win his group. Kolento and Surrender are two of the favorites to win the tournament, which would make them safe bets to win you some packs as well.
