Blizzard has opened the voting for Hearthstone Global Games. You are now able to vote for which player you want to represent your country in the event.

The Hearthstone Global Games team tournament has been announced for several months, but the final step in the process has now begun, which is the process of the public voting for the players they want on their national team. 

Each team has an anchor who has already qualified for the event by being their nation's leading HCT points earner. There are eight players to choose from for each country. These players have been shortlisted based mainly on points, but also with community standing factored in. This should lead to most teams being a mix of strong players, and popular streamers. The three players with the most votes will join the anchor on the team

You can vote by heading to the official site, logging in, and clicking on the player you want from the eight available. You will also be awarded a Whispers of the Old Gods pack for your trouble

The event starts in April, and the winning team will take home $60,000.

If you vote, you get a free pack

Takes not more then one minute. -> Even if you aren't interested in the tournament (like me) it is still worth the time.

Who did you vote for?

I voted for Stancifka, I am a huge fan of his and I would love to see him represent my country at Global Games.

I don't know many players from my country, and the ones I know just spam pirate warrior all the time. So, no vote for them. (I picked one of those who I don't know)

Kolento here. I am quite disappointed that there are only one vote. If we need to pick three platers, why don't let us pick three players?

I entirely agree we should have three votes. I think it's probably an oversight, as it makes complete sense to do it that way.

I am from Germany and picked a german player - but I didn't know a single one. (Since I am not interested in tournaments or things like that.)

 

And I agree, there are 3 players, we should be able to pick the TEAM we want us to represent. We definitly should have 3 votes. Sure, for guys like me it doesn't matter, but for everybody who knows some players that would have been way better.

      A new series of posts in the official forums will shed some light into the inner workings of the Hearthstone team. Welcome to Tavern Talk!
      In this first installment, three questions are answered. The first has to do with additional rewards for players who have earned a Golden Hero with every class. Unfortunately, no extra rewards are planned since the team wants new features or rewards to be obtainable by 10% or more of the playerbase.
      Then, we have an update on the new player experience. Team 5 wants to add additional ranks above rank 25 for new players, so they can mostly face each other in their first steps in the ranked ladder. You will be able to only progress forward in these ranks, similarly to what already happens from rank 25 to 20.
      Lastly, we have a double question about using alternate card art and reprinting cards. The team doesn't like the idea of alternate card art, since it makes sense that players associate and remember a specific card from its art. Reprinting cards is something that has been discussed already and it's something they might do in the not-so-near future after careful consideration.

      Ever wondered what goes on behind the closed doors of the tavern? Ava and the crew’s antics aside, the Hearthstone development team works hard on a myriad of tasks to bring you the game you know and love so well. More than that, we also make the time to read about the different issues and questions the community brings to light each day. Welcome to Hearthstone Tavern Talk, where we’ll share with you answers to some of the questions we see in our community!
      Are there any additional rewards for players who have achieved a Golden Hero in every class?
      Usually when we add new features or rewards we like to make something that can be obtained by 10% or more of our players. Only very few of our players have the 9 Golden Heroes, and we feel that’s already pretty awesome by itself.
      Do you have any changes planned for the new player experience?
      We have some small ladder changes that we would like to do at some point, specifically targeted at new players when they first enter the game. The change will add some additional ranks above rank 25 that new players can play through before having to play more invested players. There will only be forward advancement through those ranks, so even if they lose, no one will be able to drop back down.
      What are your thoughts on alternate card art or reprints of cards from earlier sets?
      Alternate card art is something we have avoided because players almost always use art to recognize a card and instantly know what it does. Good gameplay is very important to us so we have avoided adding multiple pieces of art for a single card.
      Reprints are something that we have discussed in the past, but we would want to do so only after careful consideration. We don’t have any specific plans for this in the near future.
      See you at the next edition of Hearthstone Tavern Talk!

      This is the second time this Brawl appears.
      The trend of Tavern Brawls themed after Death Knight Hero Powers continue: last week we had Rise of the Zombeasts, now we have Shadow Reflection.
      In this constructed Brawl, you can craft a deck of any size with cards from your collection. The rest of the deck will consist of Shadow Reflections. Decks consisted of 30 cards (and thus with no Shadow Reflections) can still work, given that Odd Paladin has reportedly been successful (and a total fun breaker).
      Judging from the previous time this Brawl was around, Aggro and OTK decks seems to be more favoured. Some decks that had success were Aggro Mage or Ice Lance Mage, Combo Priest with Radiant Elemental, Hunter with Mechwarper and Metaltooth Leaper and Quest Rogue. This time around a new Warrior deck, which mostly relies on Bring It On!, has surfaced to counter all the Priest Mind Blast madness.
      Good luck and have fun!
