With the conclusion of last weekend's HCT Winter Championship, we now know the 16 players who have qualified for the finals of the HCT 2019 World Championship.

Thanks to an update on the official Hearthstone website yesterday evening, we now also have confirmation that the event will be held between the 24th and 27th of April, with each day's action kicking off at 7:00pm PT.

The first two days of competitive play will be dedicated to the group stages, with elimination and decider matches taking place on the Saturday. The quarterfinals, semifinals and grand finals will then wrap things up on Sunday 27th.

Here's the final roster of players who have made it to the final stage of the competition, and will be fighting for their piece of a $1,000,000 prize pool:

  • Raphael "BunnyHoppor" Peltzer
  • Kacper "A83650" KwieciƄski
  • Torben "Viper" Wahl
  • David "killinallday" Acosta
  • Mihai "languagehacker" Dragalin
  • Brian "bloodyface" Eason
  • Wu "BloodTrail" Zong-Chang
  • David "Justsaiyan" Shan
  • Luo "Roger" Shengyuan
  • Guan "SNJing" Zhendong
  • Mark "Ike" Eichner
  • Xu "LFYueying" Kai
  • Tyler "Tyler" Hoang Nguyen
  • Muzahidul "Muzzy" Islam
  • Casper "Hunterace" Notto
  • Wu "XiaoT" Juwei

The finals will be held at the Taipei Heping Basketball Gymnasium, and will also be streamed on the official Hearthstone Twitch channel.

As you'd expect from the series, the Conquest format will be in play and each match will be a best-of-five affair. Each player will also be able to make use of a single ban in each encounter.

We'll have a full guide for following the finals up on the site a little nearer the time.
