Prediction challenge results!

Dear friends,

Eastern Clash is past us, and so HGC Phase 1 Part 1 is now concluded. It's time to celebrate the winners of our prediction challenge! Unfortunately, in spite of all our efforts, this time around, we weren't able to find a sponsor to fund the prize pool. Nevertheless, we didn't want to disappoint you and, in the end, decided to direct your generous donations we received so far towards token prizes for our victors.

The first prize goes to Chobo, who managed to narrowly surpass our long time leader scanz on the last day! For his extraordinarily foresight, he earned our full respect and one of the NECA Heroes of the Storm Action Figures of his choice from this list: Illidan, Nova, Tyrael or Arthas In addition to that, we would like to reward five of our best oracles with one of Funko Pop! Vinyl figures of their choice: Illidan, Kerrigan, Diablo, Tyrael, Arthas, Thrall or Sylvanas. Here are the nicknames of the lucky winners:

Please drop us a line via from the account you used to participate in the challenge and tell dolohov#2961 which prize you'd like to pick and your full postal address where we should send it to! Keep in mind that we will need some time to post the prize, and depending on your country of residence it might take quite some time.

The participants are also going to get a virtual token of recognition as well, and specifically the cool badges as shown in the picture. They will be visible on our site in your profile and the general leaderboard of the prediction challenge section. The rarity of the badge depends on the place you've got:

1 place Legendary
2-25 places Epic
26-100 places Rare
101-250 places Common
Our challenge is over, but we are eagerly waiting for the second season staring in less than a month! Everybody starts with a clean slate, which means that we welcome all and any participants, even if you missed the first season. We'll do our best to arrange some prizes for the next season as well, but no promises ;-)
In the mean time, hooray to the victors! Let's celebrate them with kind words, good wishes and respect!
