So Blizzard gave us the opportunity to choose and root for a player during the HS World Championship 2016.

You win in-game prizes for every win they get. Everyone gets a pack for just picking one of the contenders. 

So who's your pick?

For me it's basically "Pick your Thijs", just like a ton of the comments on the blogpost said. I don't know if he wins, but I like him and he is a good player for sure, so he could win a few matches for sure.

I have to take the prediction home, and that leaves me with either Pavel, DrHippi or Naiman.

Pavel is good and a real hotshot player. But I can't sympathize him after seeing his performance on EU qualifiers because he got so disgustingly lucky.

DrHippi is consistent but does not shine that much. I think that he is that type of player who can totally dominate  the ladder but not high-roll through a tournament. They have a lot of games to play, though.

But I'll probably vote Naiman, because he is just a really cool guy, and he is technically Asian, and Asians are good at video games. Kappa.

Enjoy some serious Lifecoach expression action!

I'm torn between Thijs and bbgungun. Thijs would be the most obvious pick, but I enjoyed bbgungun's games last weekend so I'd like to repay him by offering my very valuable online support in this event.

Thijs is the safest pick for me. He's going to win a little bit, hopefully he wins a lot!

Well, so far I'm glad I went with the BB! Still plenty is possible though as Thijs is definitely not out yet, even though he's up against one of the stronger participants.

Not sure if we're talking about Handsomeguy at this point, but I have to agree with Rdu about him. He is great player, but thanks to the tournament system , those achievements (three finals in regionals, 2 championships) is just overrated in my opinion. Also, he lost big against Cydonia, one og the underdogs of the tournament. 

Thijs losing to JasonZhou was definitely a surprise, especially thinking he is really comfortable with druid normally, and in that game, druid just screwed the whole game plan:(

Will we know before the tournament starts how many people have picked each contestant?

Not sure if they'll publish that, but I really hope they do. I don't see a reason for them not to, but perhaps they'll surprise us :p

So I voted for Thijs because he is good player and... well he's Dutch too. :p He's in the loser bracket now I'm hoping he can make a comeback!

I'm really impressed by Amnesiac btw. He's your typical American kid and putting his money where his mouth is. Will be rooting for him as well. :)

I wish there were more players from my home country to support! I don't see many Serbian players out there yet though :p

      Dave Kosak introduces us to the Monster Hunt, which will be available in a week.
      The Lead Mission Designer was joined by two of his associates to discuss the newest PvE mode, which will come along with The Witchwood. Paul Nguyen talked about the four heroes. Tess Greymane has a Hero Power that lets her Discover any class card that has been played in a game (by both players) and add it to your hand.
      Darius Crowley has an indestructible cannon minion that can be activated via Darius' Hero Power and fire at the minions across it. Positioning will matter, as you can kill two enemy minions at once and the Hero Power will refresh each time you kill a minion with your cannon. There weren't any details on Houndmaster Shaw or Toki, Time-Tinker, but it was hinted that the former hero will have something to do with Rush (just like its card counterpart).
      Giovanni Scarpati discussed bosses and treasures. The Monster Hunt will feature over 45 unique boss encounters. As Ben Brode had revealed in an earlier interview, each hero will have its own final boss, called "nemesis fight". For Crowley it's Lord Godfrey, for Shaw it's Glinda Crowskin and for Toki it's her own future self! When you clear the Monster Hunt with all four heroes (and win four packs), you get to face Hagatha as the last boss. Ultimately, as far as the treasures are concerned, there are a few returning ones from the Dungeon Run, but most are new. There are also hero exclusive treasures, as well as unique treasures "dropping" from rare boss encounters.
      You should definitely watch the video to get a glimpse of all the new stuff coming with the Monster Hunt. And don't forget: it's release date is April 26 at 10:00 am PDT!

      Start stocking up on vials of holy water and cannonballs, because The Witchwood’s free, single-player missions, the Monster Hunt, goes live on April 26 at 10:00 a.m. PDT!
      Join Lead Mission Designer Dave Kosak, along with Mission Designers Paul Nguyen and Giovanni Scarpati, for a Hearthside Chat that will equip you with everything you need to know for a successful Monster Hunt!
      Ready for Action
      If you played the Dungeon Run in Kobolds & Catacombs, the Monster Hunt will be eerily familiar—but much is different! Rather than choosing one of Hearthstone’s nine classes, you’ll take on the role of one of four veteran monster hunters, each with a special ability that you’ll need to make the most of if you hope to survive the hunt.
      Your hunter will venture deep into the Witchwood on Hagatha’s trail, defeating a series of monstrous bosses who dare to cross your path. With each victory, you’ll build a stronger and stronger deck with the items you find. You may encounter some trusty old equipment out in the forest, but much of what you’ll find will be entirely new, including treasures unique to certain foes. Each monster hunter has their own favorite tricks—a special hero power or ability that you’ll need to master if you hope to survive the hunt. Each hunter also carries a grudge against a heinous nemesis in the woods: a unique boss that only they can track down to fight.

      You’ll want to go on a Monster Hunt with every hunter, because each offers a quest that will earn you a Witchwood card pack. And if you’ve got the mettle to complete the Monster Hunt with all four hunters, you’ll finally have a chance to face off with the real witch in the woods: Hagatha! If you can free the wood from Hagatha’s curse, you’ll earn the gratitude of Gilneas and the Monster Hunter card back!

      We hope you enjoyed learning more of what lurks ahead in Monster Hunt! We’re eager to hear your tales of The Witchwood on social media using the #Witchwood hashtag. Learn more about The Witchwood at TheWitchwood.com!
      We’ll see you on the hunt!
