Death Knight can't be banned at Hearthstone World Championship
According to Blizzard, players will not be able to ban the new Death Knight class. Caster Simon “Sottle” Welch also confirmed this over on Twitter.
"They are not required to bring DK, it simply can't be banned if they do bring it," Sottle wrote.
In terms of the format, the Hearthstone World Championship 2022 event will showcase the best-of-five conquest with a ban one. This means each player will bring four decks into the fray.
