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?

      Starting first is often seen as better than going second, in spite of the extra card and The Coin that you receive at the start of the game. This is due to the loss of tempo from the missing mana. Although the difference in win rates is quite small, it still can be felt, especially in Aggro vs Aggro matchups, where going first results in a significant advantage.
      Who goes first is decided by quite literally a coin flip—it is decided randomly, visualised by a coin toss. There is no way to affect whether you go first or second. However, you can mitigate the effects of the coin toss by playing a deck that is not affected as much by going first or second.

      Both players get to play as Deathstalker Rexxar, the Hunter Death Knight!
      It's time to experience how powerful Deathstalker Rexxar is; the hero card is, after all, included in some of the best decks of the current meta like Spell and Recruit Hunter.
      The Hero Power is free in this Tavern Brawl, so you can use it all you want. It's better to use it first on your turn and it really tests your skill as you need to craft the proper Zombeast for the situation you are in. Your deck will also be filled with various random Zombeasts, as well as Hunter cards. Lastly, you will start at 3 mana.
      Games can last long and your hand will be quite full most of the time, so be careful not to overdraw.
      This Tavern Brawl is part of the Taverns of Time event. Good luck!
