The Hearthstone competitive year for 2019 comes to a conclusion on the 25-28th April, 2019.
In my opinion, it’s been an awesome year following all the Prelims and Championships, and looking at the lineup, which I show you below, it’s going to be an awesome event.
Here’s everything you need to know about the Hearthstone World Championship 2019 Schedule, Location, Players, Prize Pool, and more.

Who to Pick for the Most Free Packs?
The community always go nuts for the free packs from the ‘Choose a Champion’ promotion Blizzard always run for their major events.
I wish there was a way of knowing, or at least narrowing down who is likely to perform the best – but let’s be honest, there isn’t.
Just go with who you want to support, or think will do the best. I think it’s fair to say that Ike will be one of the most popular fan favorites if you want to jump on that.
While in my opinion, Muzzy, Bunnyhoppor, Hunterace, Viper, and Bloodyface have the best chances of making the top 8 if you want a try-hard pick. From there, I think any of them can take the Championship.
Hearthstone World Championship 2019 Prize Pool
With 1 million dollars on the line shared among the participants, there is a lot on the line for these 16 players.
The person who wins and lifts the trophy takes home a cool $250k!
Here is how the prize pool is split across the top 10, with the other 6 players getting the same as the 10th place player.
