Choose Your Champion Returns For The HCT Summer Championship

Recommended Posts



Once again, you get to vote for your favourite finalist on the HCT Summer Championship and earn card packs.

As usual, you will receive one pack just for picking a champion, while you will get additional card packs each time your selected player advances to the next stage of the Championship. Obviously, this time you will be awarded with Knights of the Frozen Throne packs and you can earn up to a total of 4 packs. The voting page can be found here.

The Summer Championship finals will take place Friday, October 13, through Sunday, October 15. You have until October 12 at 9.00 am CEST for Europe or October 11 at 11:59 PDT for the Americas to vote for the player you are going to root for this time.

Here's the tournament's schedule:

  • Oct. 13 at 17:30 CEST / 8:30 am PDT – Group Stage
  • Oct. 14 at 17:30 CEST / 8:30 am PDT – Group Stage
  • Oct. 15 at 17:30 CEST / 8:30 am PDT – Playoffs

The Summer Championship will have a dual tournament group stage, followed by a single elimination playoff bracket. Groups will consist of four competitors—one from each region. Each match will be best-of-five in the Conquest format with one class ban, so all players need four decks.

Who will be fighting for the $60,000 of the first prize out of a total prize pool of $250,000?

Group A Group B Group C Group D
Trunks Purple Surrender Pavel
OldBoy uya YAYTears SHRoyalBaiZe
Nalguidan Amyks OmegaZero Cocosasa
Tom60229 OMJasonzhou Orange Empanizado

Group C definitely looks like the "group of death", while in Group D you can find Baize, the very first female player to make it to an HCT Championship final stage. There are a lot of new names this time, so make sure to vote carefully. If you want to know a bit more about the players, you can read this dedicated official blog post about them.

As always, I'll just wait on the decklists to be made public so I can make the totally wrong pick, based on my very misguided idea of which decks are good or not.
