Hearthstone highlights Innkeeper's Invitational players

Hearthstone highlights Innkeeper's Invitational players
The Innkeeper's Invitational will be BlizzCon's inagural Hearthstone tournament, featuring eight Hearthstone players hand-picked by Blizzard. For those who may not be familiar with the competitors, Blizzard is releasing a set of small interviews to be published in two parts profiling each of the players taking a shot at the tournament title. The first four can be found here and are, as the header image implies, Noxious, Hafu, Husky, and Reckful.

I really enjoyed reading these quick get-to-know-you style Q&As. Each player is given the same set of questions to answer and their responses are pretty interesting, especially their individual takes on who their most feared opponents are. In fact -- interestingly enough -- the most commonly mentioned "most feared an hated" were the four players who will be featured in the second interview: Trump, Kripparian, Day[9], and Artosis. No love/hate for each other, guys?

Check out the interviews for more information from each of these competitors, including their own personal favorite Arena picks as well as why their personal tournament shield logos are what they are. The answers are not entirely what you might expect!

Innkeeper's Invitational announced for BlizzCon

For many BlizzCon attendees, one of the big draws is the chance to see some of the top players from Blizzard's franchises square off in matches and tournaments. We've come to expect competitions in WoW PvP and Starcraft in particular, and this year there will be another game added to the mix: Hearthstone.

Blizzard has invited eight of the most dedicated Hearthstone players to compete live in a small tournament at BlizzCon this year called the Innkeeper's Invitational. Each player will bring three decks -- they must all be different classes -- and compete against each other in a series of matches. If your deck loses, it's out for good, and that player has to select a different deck. Once all three decks have been eliminated, that player is out of the competition and resigned to watching from the sidelines.

If you're interested in seeing how hardcore card game players go about their games, this is a great opportunity to do so! And it might give us all some ideas for how to modify our own Hearthstone decks in the future. If you won't be attending BlizzCon you can tune in using a Virtual Ticket or check out the matches on the World of Warcraft Twitch channel.
