Hearthstone is getting its players in to the upcoming 2016 Hearthstone Championship Tour spirit with the Choose Your Champion promotion, an event that has players select their chosen eSports player and rewards them for every win they score.
Sixteen players will be squaring off at BlizzCon for a $250k first prize during the tournament, and players have been challenged to pick one eSports player as their chosen Champion. For every best-of-seven match a Champion wins during the Opening Week group stages, players will receive a new card pack from the Grand Tournament expansion, and everyone who participates will receive one free Grand Tournament card pack just for making a choice.
Voting begins from now until October 25th, and once your choice is made it cannot be changed. Competition for the Opening Week will begin on October 26th. You can read up all the details and select your Champion on the official site.
This is definitely one way to get Hearthstone players invested in the game’s eSports segment. We enjoy the idea of cheering on a Champion, and we can’t wait to see how the Championship Tour will play out!
