BlizzCon Top Eight Decided

After five days of group stage action, the focus in the World Championship will move to BlizzCon and the Quarterfinals on Friday.

The first stage was not short of drama as both Naiman and Thijs were eliminated. Thijs was a victim of being in the toughest group of the event, and lost to Handsomeguy and JasonZhou. Naiman lost to Bbgungun, and Hamster. Hamster is turning out to be the fan favourite of the tournament, winning people over with his desire not to win, but to make friends. Hamster is also popular due to his decision to bring Priest and Paladin to the tournament, because he feels the World Championship should have every class represented!

Other than these shocks, Pavel, Amnesiac, and DrHippi all came through unscathed.


As you can see above, the Americas vs Europe rivalry will go a long way towards being settled in the quarterfinals, as DrHippi and Pavel both take on American opponents. The matches will be shown on PlayHearthstone's Twitch from 12:15pm PDT on Friday 4 November.

... one pack only for entering. Way to let me down Thijs...
Off this list it looks like a lot of people will be let down though. I like that Blizzard did this, because honestly I wouldn't have even cared about the tourney until late rounds (or even finals). No risk, all reward, what's not to like?

      The single-player adventure, introduced along with the Rastakhan's Rumble expansion, is now available in all regions.
      The Rumble Run is very similar to the Dungeon Run and the Monster Hunt, in the sense that you will face eight opponents and you will build your deck as you progress using card bundles, passives and powerful minions exclusive to this game mode.
      Your hero will always be Rikkar, a young Troll champion eager to prove himself. In the beginning of your run, you will be offered three different Shrines (more on them in the next paragraph) from three different classes. This initial decision basically equals to you picking a Class for this run. The other eight classes will be your opponents.

      Shrines exist as minions on the board and they have powerful effects. Each class has three different Shrines and each starting Shrine comes with a complementary deck of 10 minions that synergise with it. When a Shrine dies, it goes dormant for 3 turns and its effect isn't active until it comes back to life.
      Subsequently, you will build your deck using card bundles, neutral passive abilities and class-specific minions exclusive to the Rumble Run.
      If you finish the Rumble Run once with any class, you will earn this card back:

      Good luck on this new adventure and we'll soon have a detailed guide on it!

      This new Tavern Brawl features the deck recipes from Rastakhan's Rumble.
      With Rastakhan's Rumble being released last week, we were bound to get a Tavern Brawl like this. So pick a hero and you get the premade Rastakhan's Rumble deck recipe for the class you chose.
      Here are the decks:
      Druid: Feral Frenzy Hunter: Animal Instincts Mage: Power of the Dragonhawk Paladin: Shirvallah's Chosen Priest: Surrender to Madness Rogue: Cursed Crew Shaman: Big Bad Voodoo Warlock: Reckless Ritual (Discard) Warrior: Wings of War (Dragons) Good luck!
