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:

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.

      Some exciting card pack changes are coming with the next Hearthstone expansion.
      With the release of the next Hearthstone expansion, but still applying to ALL packs, you won't be able to get the same legendary card from a card pack. This applies to crafted legendaries, as well: if you have crafted a legendary card, for example Tirion Fordring, he won't drop for you if you open a Classic pack.
      Moreover, beginning with the release of the next expansion, you’re also guaranteed to get a Legendary within your first 10 packs of a new set.
      Watch Ben Brode announce this amazing piece of news in his usual excited tone. I mean, what is there not to be excited about?
      Lastly, a special promotion is coming soon in the Store. The bundle prices will stay the same, but the number of the packs you will be able to get will be increased. The dates for the promotion haven't been announced yet,

      The second phase of Hearthstone Global Games begins with a new round robin group stage.
      The 24 countries, that successfully made it into this stage, were reassigned in six different groups. Each group contains four teams that will battle against each other in a round robin.
      The groups are:

      The format remains the same as stage 1:
      Blizzard Entertainment
      Each team is comprised of four members. Teams will need to bring one deck for each of the nine Hearthstone classes, with two assigned to each member and one reserved as an "Ace Deck".
      Matches will be played in a best-of-five format, with the first team to win three games taking victory. Competitors can only play one game per match, and the order in which they battle must be decided before the match begins. However, players will be allowed to choose between either of the two decks assigned to them when it’s time for their game.
      Should a match reach game five, the designated "Ace Players" from each team will face off using either their unused deck or the unassigned "Ace Deck". (source)
      The top two teams from each group, and the four highest 3rd place teams based on tie-breakers points will advance to Phase 3.
      Tuesday games have concluded. You can find the results in the spoiler tag:
      Tomorrow's schedule is:
      16:00 CEST / 10:00 EDT
      Netherlands v Philippines Czech Republic v Israel Greece v Peru USA v Belgium Canada v Mexico You can find more info on the event, the casters and a recap of phase 1 here. Don't forget that you can watch all the games on the official Hearthstone Twitch channel.

      A thread called 'Why was Old Murk-Eye removed as a collection reward?' rose to the front page of r/hearthstone yesterday and Ben Brode dropped by to share some insight on promo cards that have rotated out of Standard.
      More than a year ago, when Standard and Wild were introduced to Hearthstone, Team 5 decided it was time to bid farewell to the following promo cards: Captain's Parrot, Old Murk-Eye, Elite Tauren Chieftain and Gelbin Mekkatorque. Yesterday, a Reddit user was wondering why these cards (and specifically the legendary Murloc one) weren't available anymore, while other users wanted to know why the team decided to keep these cards in Wild only.
      Enter Hearthstone's Game Director Ben Brode, who answered to the original poster first. Ben repeated the team's statement from a year ago that Old Murk-Eye was removed because Charge minions have proved historically (and especially in 2016) problematic. He also explained that they removed the card as as a reward, because they wanted players to focus on acquiring Basic, Classic and Standard sets first and leave Wild last. Additionally, Ben characterised the whole concept of "promo" cards complex - which is quite a peculiar statement. Ultimately, if the team wanted to give away a free Legendary, they wouldn't give this one.
      Ben Brode
      Hey there!
      We had to make a call on "promo" cards: Should they be Standard forever? Or Wild?
      I think it could have gone either way, but the opportunity to remove another Charge minion in Standard (Charge has been the cause of a lot of balance issues, historically), was hard to pass up. We also stopped Captain's Parrot from showing up in "random Beast" drops in Standard.
      At the end of the day, we felt like Standard would be more fun without those cards. Maybe we should have just nerfed Murk Eye to remove Charge instead, but I actually like that it exists in Wild.
      We removed it as a reward because we didn't want players to randomly unlock Wild before our yearly rotation, or before they initiated the unlock themselves by crafting a Wild card. Ideally new players move through the cards in this order: Basic > Classic > Standard-Legal > Wild.
      In game design, you can eventually get players to very high levels of complexity, but starting with the most complex thing can turn new players off. We call it the "complexity curve", start with the basics, then layer in complexity. It's why you take Algebra before Calculus, and not the other way around. It's also one of the reasons why new players don't start with everything unlocked.
      In some of the comments here I think players see it as a lost opportunity for a free Legendary. If we want to give out some other free Legendary (and that might be a good idea), I don't think doing it for this specific card (Charge, unlock Wild) is the right solution. (source)
      Several people pressured Brode on that last issue: for example, one user stated that Old Murk-Eye could be given as a reward when a player crafts his/her first Wild card. However, Ben responded to all of them multiple times that he didn't think this was the ideal legendary to give to players for free (1, 2 and 3).
      Ben explained his comment that "promo" cards can seem complex to new players, by saying that: "The more concepts we introduce, the more you have to learn, the more work it is" (source). When asked if the Hearthstone team planned to make more "promo" cards, Brode expressed his uncertainty on the issue.
      Lastly, Patches the Pirate managed to sneak in (or more properly, charge into) this discussion. When somebody commented that Patches was printed even after the team acknowledged that Charge minions are problematic, Ben Brode answered:
      Ben Brode
      At least Patches will someday rotate. We can get an ebb and flow to Standard this way. Classic cards are the baseline, and some of them are great to have around forever. We'll add more Charge minions, I'm sure. But doing it in rotating sets gives us a lot more control. (source)
