The Collegiate National Finals take place over the weekend of 22-23 April, and in keeping with other large finals, Blizzard are running a Choose Your Champion contest.

You can win up to three packs per server for choosing who you think is going to win the TESPA Finals. The contest can be found on this page. You will receive one pack for entering, another if your team wins their quarter-final match, and a third if they reach the final. The prize pool for the event has been over $160,000 in scholarship money, with the winners taking $10,000 each in scholarships.

The teams remaining in the event are as follows:

Blizzard LogoTop Eight TESPA Teams

Shawnee State University

Colorado State University

École Polytechnique de Montréal

Rutgers University

The University of Texas at San Antonio

University of North Carolina – Chapel Hill

University of California – Riverside

University of California – Berkeley

Frodan will be the host for the event. Cora "Songbird" Georgiou and Nathan "ThatsAdmirable" Zamora will be the headline casters.

The event will also showcase the winners of the 2017 So You Think You Can Cast contest: Justin "JV" Varghese, and Nabil "Nebtune" Pervez.

I have no idea how good the TESPA team are. Any suggestion who to pick?

I like the increased amount of Choose Your Champion packs lately, though I can never quite pick the best one (Thijs for 1 pack, Pavel for 1 pack).

My picks have always been equally as terrible... so on that note, pick Rutgers at your own risk.

Wait a minute, hold on...so they are already having another Choose Your Champion thing and yet I still haven't even gotten the last packs I was promised from the last one...what gives! (Yes, I did make an account just to ask that question but will keep it so I can chat in the forums for more Harthstone stuff, so sue me).

I recommend logging to all servers. It's also possible you missed it, as the pack was awarded on the same day as a pack from daily login rewards, which could have made you skip-click it. After you check all your servers, and if you are absolutely sure that you did not receive your pack, contact the support.
We are happy when new users join us, whatever the reason is. Welcome!

So how would I be able to tell if I did get the pack or not? Is there a log for what packs I do get that I can find?

 

And thanks, glad to be here :) Originally found the site because I'm really...REALLY bad at deck building and was looking to see if my "Healers Delight" Deck idea was actually a sound strategy...but that's for another forum post XD

None that I know of. It's more like, how much do you believe that you did not subconsciously click the pack and then opened it without thinking about it much. You can always ask the support, and even if you did open it, no harm done, though it could be a waste of time.

I voted Colorado State. Was that a good gamble?

I can win 1 pack? Does my team have to become the champion to earn the (Gadgetzan!) pack?

Anyonme knows the teams in the championship maybe?

offtopic:

Well I found a King Mosh Warrior Legendary in a pack this morning anyway :)
I love it. I always wanted to have it (since the beginning of time ..... in Ungoro ..... 2 weeks ago)
If only because it's name is King Mosh.

You get a pack for voting, and a pack for each round that your team wins (advances from the round), totalling 3 packs if your team ends up 1st or 2nd.

Wait, if that's the case then I definitely haven't got a pack! I had no packs in my inventory when I made the vote for this one (as for the last Choose your Champion, with Un-goro packs coming and going a lot, I doubt it would be worth it to try and remember). Who would I contact about this for support?

The packs are sent a few days after the event ends, which means you will have to wait to get your pack added to your account.

For the second time in a row, I pick the participant who will finish in the second place. First Frozen and now Montreal. I got the maximum number of packs somehow, so I got that going for me. Even though I am not really missing anything from Gadgetzan set.

I'll have to ask you for advice in the future - I make the worst choices every time.

      The Hearthstone heroes are trying to enjoy Rastakhan's Rumble but a fellow spectator named Belligerent Gnome is annoying Rexxar!
      Wronchi have released the second part of their Rastakan's Rumble series of animations. You remember that in the first part the nine heroes were trying to get into the Gurubashi Arena. Now, we see that Rexxar, Jaina and Anduin are enjoying the games but there's a little fellow that's too loud for Rexxar's taste.
      And here he is:

      No wonder Rexxar is angry since this is definitely a Silverback Patriarch power creep! Although one would expect that Gul'dan would be equally angry, since this is a Vulgar Homunculus with a condition for every class!
      To start the serious discussion on this card, this looks like an anti-aggro tool that can also probably find its place in aggro decks as well. It's hard to see the Battlecry trigger on turn 2 exactly, making this a bit of a slower card. Dragon Priest used to have a similar card in Wyrmrest Agent, which was easier to trigger. Even decks could be a good place for Belligerent Gnome - Even Shaman, in particular, since I don't see Warlocks dropping their beloved Homunculus.
      It's definitely a versatile card with a lot of potential and it seems balanced - for now.

      Two new cards from Rastakhan's Rumble were revealed in an official blog post detailing the story of the upcoming expansion.
      The first card revealed is a neutral Pirate:

      It's important to clarify that the Overkill effect triggers only on your turn (ie. when you attack and not when you are attacked) and this minion will draw you cards even if it dies as long as you Overkill something. Other than that, it feels slow for an aggro Pirate deck and its low Health means it can be killed easily. Perhaps it could make for a decent Arena card.
      The awesomely named second card of the day is Heavy Metal!

      Here is a spell with the Geosculptor Yip effect, at a reduced cost and minus the body. Interestingly enough, this card would have been better if it costed 5 or 7 mana since it would fit in Odd Warrior, a deck that heavily utilises armoring up. Even Warrior might become a thing in the future, but still with Yip never really having caught on, it's really hard to see this card fit into any Warrior deck.
      The blog post itself is interesting, since it gives an introduction to the lore of Rastakhan's Rumble. We see Rikkar - the aspiring Troll champion, who is also the protagonist of the Rumble Run - entering the Gurubashi Arena and trying to pick which team he is going to side with. The Tigers - the Paladin team - are described as the returning champions of Rastakhan's Rumble. We are eager to see what's next for this expansion!

      The Hearthstone subreddit interviewed Peter Whalen and Liv Breeden on the upcoming Rastakhan's Rumble expansion.
      You can read the entire interview here.
      Interview Highlights
      Rastakhan's Rumble has been in development for almost a year, from January 2018. Spirits will be appearing in the Arena. We won't see much of old Keywords in Rastakhan's Rumble, but they are open to revisiting them (Hero and highlander cards, Inspire and C'Thun were mentioned). One of the design lessons Team 5 has learned is that they want more build-around cards that have cheap rarity (like the Spirits). With Rastakhan's Rumble, they wanted classes to feel like a team. Captain Hooktusk, the Rogue champion, is an original Hearthstone character. Pirates are mostly in Rogue in this expansion. They are still pretty aggressive, but there are some more expensive pirates in this set.

      The reveal season for Rastakhan's Rumble starts with a Paladin card.
      Every recent Hearthstone expansion has had its own series of funny blog posts and videos. Blizzard collaborated with Wronchi in The Boomsday Project and now they are back for Rastakhan's Rumble.
      Hearthstone's heroes are waiting in line to get tickets to get into the Gurubashi Arena. Everyone has the gold for it, except from poor (literally) Uther. He does get a card reveal though and the story will be continued from what was teased in the end.

      People have been comparing this card to Evasion and Ice Block. It certainly has it pros and cons. You can play it proactively, even at high health and you can combine it perfectly with a weapon swing or powerful healing spells. On the other hand, Time Out! requires more setting-up and better game knowledge of what cards your opponent might have on his/her hand. This card could potentially go into a Control Paladin deck, along with Shirvallah, the Tiger legendary Loa minion.
      What do you think?

      The game client is now ready for the release of Rastakhan's Rumble next month. The new Classic cards have also been patched into the game.
      With the announcement of the Rastakhan's Rumble expansion during BlizzCon, the team was quick to patch it in the game in preparation for the December 4 release.
      You can already pre-purchase the new expansion with two options: the full Bundle contains 50 packs, the Ready to Rumble! card back and the new Shaman skin, King Rastakhan.

      The more affordable Challenger's Bundle includes 17 packs and the thematic card back.

      Hearthstone is also celebrating reaching 100 million players. Log in between November 7-11 to receive 6 The Boomsday Project packs and repeatable Players Quests that you can complete with your friends.
      This patch finally adds the new Classic cards for Mage, Rogue and Warlock.


      The following card backs have been added to the game:
      Ready to Rumble – Acquired from a Rastakhan’s Rumble pre-purchase bundle.
      Frostwolf – Acquired from winning fives games in Ranked Play, December 2018.
      Good Cheer – Acquired from the Twitch cheer promotion.
      The Third War – Acquired from the Warcraft III: Reforged promotion.
      Lastly, the patch includes improvements to Hearthstone's mobile app and various bug fixes, which you can read here.
