Today, Blizzard opened a new Choose Your Champion event for the upcoming finals of the Hearthstone Global Games. The event allows players to earn free card packs from the Knights of the Frozen Throne card set by predicting which team will go home with the grand prize after the finals at GamesCom on August 26.
Any Hearthstone player that selects a champion will be awarded a free pack of cards, with a second pack being issued to anyone that correctly predicts the outcome. Champion selection is open from August 16-23 and can be accessed through a notification in the Hearthstone client or by logging into your Blizzard account on the official Hearthstone eSports website.
The Hearthstone Global Games started on April 11, with teams from 48 countries competing for a piece of the $332,000 prize pool. In the semi-finals on August 25, the United States will be facing the Czech Republic for a chance to play in the finals on August 26. The other semi-final match is between the top-ranked South Korea team and second place Ukraine team.
