Earn free Hearthstone packs by guessing who will win World Championship

"Choose Your Champion" for groups and knockouts.

Do you like free Hearthstone packs? Do you like watching esports? Then Blizzard has some good news for you, because over the next two weeks you can get your hands on free The Grand Tournament packs just by picking a player you think will do well in the Hearthstone World Championship at BlizzCon.

All you have to do is head over to the Choose Your Champion page and pick one of the 16 players competing in the tournament. That's it! You will get a free The Grand Tournament pack just for participating, and you'll get another one every time your chosen champion picks up a win at the World Championship.

What's more, you get two opportunities to take part. The first selection window is open now and closes tomorrow, October 25, just before midnight PDT ahead of the group stages, which start the next day. Once the groups are concluded, you'll get a second chance from October 31st until midnight on November 3rd to pick a champion for the knockout phase.

"Gnomish Homing Chickens used to deliver card packs may take a few days to arrive," Blizzard notes, so bear that in mind.

If you don't follow Hearthstone esports but fancy getting into it for the World Championship, then a) Blizzard will be pleased to learn that this marketing push has been successful, and b) check out our guide to the Hearthstone World Championship. Our hot tip is South Korean player handsomeguy, who we're hoping will earn us a good few packs in the days to come...
