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.

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.

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

      Blizzard (Source)
      Welcome to a new year in the tavern, everyone! We have a balance update in the works that will go live later this week which includes the following changes, primarily for Standard and Battlegrounds:

      Necrium Apothecary : Mana cost increased from (4) to (5). Neutral
      Dragonqueen Alexstrasza: Battlecry effect can no longer generate Dragonqueen Alexstrasza. *Once the update is live, adjusted cards will be eligible for a full Arcane Dust refund for two weeks.
      Battlegrounds
      This update includes several adjustments and gets more Heroes brawling in Bob’s Tavern than ever before! Further Battlegrounds balance changes are coming very soon, in addition to the exciting new content we have in the pipeline… we’ll have more to share in the near future!
      Heroes
      Shudderwock
      Burbling: Cost reduced from (2) to (1) . Queen Wagtoggle
      Wax Warband : Give a random friendly Mech, Demon, Murloc and Beast +2 Attack . (instead of +1 Health) Infinite Toki
      Temporal Tavern : Cost reduced from (2) to (1) . Now reads, “Refresh Bob’s Tavern. Include a Minion from a higher Tavern Tier.” Patches the Pirate
      Has returned to the Battlegrounds Hero Pool. Fire the Cannons! : At the start of next combat, deal 4 damage to two random enemy minions. (increased from 3 damage) Pyramad

      Golden Soul Juggler
      After a friendly Demon dies, deal 3 damage to a random enemy minion twice . (instead of 6 damage once) Bug Fixes and Game Improvements
      Battlegrounds : Selfless Hero’s Deathrattle will now only affect minions that do not already have Divine Shield. Arena : The appearance rate of cards in the draft has been updated to ensure class balance remains close to the ideal 50% win-rate. Specifically, the win-rate of Druid, Hunter, and Paladin should now be decreased. The win-rate of Priest, Rogue, Shaman and Warlock should now be increased. Card appearance rates for Mage and Warrior remain untouched.
