On Heroic mode, you basically only have a chess board's worth of "pieces" (i.e. 8 Pawn cards, 2 Knight cards, 2 Rook Cards, 2 Bishop cards and one Queen Card; with you, the player, being the King), 15 cards total where your opponent still has a full deck worth of pieces.

Tight. Very tight, especially with that blackguard on the other side still cheating. Quite challenging to eke the most out of your pieces by shuffling them around and win. By far the most original 'alternative' battle they came up with.

This fight is no fight, this is just waiting until u have the perfect card-draw and the luck u need. However just bullshit. This is again a sensless and unfair game and like a the most heroic´s ist JUST YOU vs. the Carddraw, i hate that. You Need just time and luck and try again until the internal cardraw give u the right draw.

Come on? U have 15 Card? WTF? The Opponent has 30 Cards? And this hero-power? Are they kidding me? Just frustrating and time wasting. I dont know how this can be fun?

I disagree here. While it is draw dependent, it can be won with a not-so-good draw as well. You need to plan several turns ahead and expect what your opponent does, just like real chess.

And that Encounter makes realy no fun - it is still wait until u have enough 1minion and get the right Position and and and....  and come on.. hahah...there is defenatly no compare to real chess.... are u kidding me???

Chess theme doesn't make it chess. You don't know what card your opponent is holding. It can do something you can't - you can do something it can't with your "hero power". It also has more cards, I mostly died because of running out of cards while opponent kept drawing and destroying my left-most minions. It is an asymmetric game for sure, definitely not chess.

Let's not get into semantics.
We did not name the encounter Chess. Blizzard did. We named the guide to reflect the name of the encounter.

      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.
      Finalists, 4 Packs: Surrender, Orange. 
      Semi-Finalists, 3 Packs: JasonZhou, Purple
      Quarter-Finalists, 2 Packs: Empanizado, OldBoy, Pavel, Tom60229
      All other players were worth 1 Pack.
      All of the decks from the event can be found on our new esports section here.

      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.
