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.

      Our K&C guides should be coming along real soon!
      Blizzard surprised Europeans pleasantly by releasing the new expansion on Thursday, a few hours after the Americas release.
      Hearthstone latest expansion is now live in the Americas and in Europe. The patch, that added Kobolds & Catacombs to the live client, was released on Wednesday. The important part is that new cardbacks have been added, arena draft appearance rates have been adjusted and there are going to be daily login quests during the upcoming World Championship. Click below to view the patch notes:
      Blizzard Entertainment
      + Show- Hide   Don’t miss out! The Kobolds & Catacombs pre-purchase bundle will remain available until 11:59 p.m. PST December 6. This bundle includes 50 card packs at a special price and the For the Hoard! card back. Hearthstone’s newest Expansion, Kobolds & Catacombs, releases beginning December 7! Log in after release to receive 3 Kobolds & Catacombs card packs and a random Legendary weapon card, FREE! Kobolds & Catacombs introduces: Dungeon Run: FREE repeatable single-player experience where everything you need is provided! Legendary weapon collectible cards for ALL nine classes A new keyword: Recruit Two new card types: Spellstones and Unidentified Items In total, 135 new cards to add to your collection! Added three progressive Dungeon Run quests that each reward a Kobolds & Catacombs card pack*. Defeat Dungeon Run with all nine classes to acquire the Candle King card back! New daily quest – Spelunker: Defeat 5 Dungeon Run encounters. Reward: 1 Classic card pack. The Hearth and Home cinematic has replaced the previous Hearthstone cinematic.
      Added the following card backs: Azeroth is Burning – Acquired from a special promotion.
      Catacomber – Acquired from achieving Rank 20 in Ranked Play, December 2017
      Frostfire – Acquired from achieving Rank 20 in Ranked Play, January 2018
      Improved reconnection and UI for Friendly Challenges. A new Match Paused pop-up will display a countdown while waiting for opponent to reconnect. When a player reconnects, the turn timer will restart. The Game Menu will now display ‘End Game’ instead of ‘Concede’ and clicking it will tie the match. Arena
      Arena draft appearance rates have been adjusted. Note: Non-Basic Neutral Classic minions represent the baseline for draft appearance rates. Basic/classic neutral minion: .5x Non-basic/classic neutral minion: 1x Most recent set neutral minion: 2x Basic class minion: 2x Basic class spell: 3.5x Non-basic/classic class minion: 2x Non-basic/classic class spell/weapon: 3.5x Most recent set class minion: 4x Most recent set class spell/weapon: 7x As part of our ongoing efforts to improve Class balance in the Arena, we are making small, periodic appearance rate adjustments to specific Arena cards.   Bug Fixes Fixed a crash that could occur when attempting to spectate without closing the Arena welcome message. Canceling Malfurion the Pestilent will no longer cause Armor to become invisible. Attacks with Lifesteal will no longer create excessive animations while Auchenai Soulpriest and Bolf Ramshield are on the board. Multi-target effects with Lifesteal now apply their healing as a single large heal, rather than individually. All Lifesteal effects now use the same, standardized, visual and sound effects. Combo effects can no longer target non-interactable minions such as Sherazin, Seed. Brann Bronzebeard will no longer grant double Lifesteal to Corpsetaker. Blingtron’s Battlecry will now trigger weapon Deathrattles when it occurs twice due to Brann Bronzebeard. Minions destroyed by Frostmourne will now be displayed on its enchantment banner. Losing durability from Sword of Justice will no longer sometimes cause Lifesteal to trigger. Deathstalker Rexxar’s Battlecry no longer benefits from effects on an equipped weapon, such as Poisonous or Lifesteal. Unwilling Sacrifice’s random targeting will no longer select an enemy Spellbender that has intercepted an Unwilling Sacrifice. Granting a Deathrattle to Scavenging Hyena, then playing Terrorscale Stalker on it will no longer give it +2/+1. Resolved a crash that could occur when playing a Quest spell that triggers Counterspell. Cards transformed by Golden Kobold will no longer sometimes be revealed to your opponent. The animation for Frost Nova will no longer play multiples times while Moorabi is on the board. Hovering over a Quest in progress as your turn starts will no longer cause cards that provide progress toward completing it to lose class specific border colors. Replacing a Cursed Blade with a Cursed Blade will no longer remove the ‘cursed’ animation on the Hero portrait. Application of the Bolster buff will no longer be slightly delayed on an eligible minion that was played last onto a full board. Joust and other card reveal effects will now function correctly if your deck contains 60 cards. Tavern Brawl
      Shiftcon: Minions with a Yellow glow will no longer retain it when they shift into a new minion. Tag Team: Resolved an issue that could cause the match to end prematurely when swapping Heroes. Decks Assemble: Resolved a crash that could occur when the turn ends while your opponent controls Jeeves. Mobile
      [Mobile] Fixed a bug where card tooltips would sometime appear at the edge of the screen and get cut off on mobile devices [Android] Region selection on Android tablets will no longer sometimes be blank. (source)
      Kobolds & Catacombs also has a launch trailer. And... it's... glorious!
      Our Kobolds & Catacombs hub contains all 135 revealed cards and everything you need to know about the novelties of this expansion, such as the Dungeon Runs or the new Class Legendary Weapons. At the moment, our guide writers should be hard at work preparing new deck guides. We might even have guides for the Dungeon Runs. Lastly, our Arena tier lists are up-to-date.
      At any case, you can track any updates in our Hearthstone changelog, but we'll probably make a news post about them. For now, you can read Aleco's excellent set review for Kobolds & Catacombs.
      Good luck with your pack openings and feel free to share any amazingly good or bad openings you've had! Also, best of luck to those who'll brave the ladder or to those of you who choose to delve into the Dungeon Runs!
