Group C of the SL i-League StarSeries has been completed and two more qualifiers for the second group stage, from where the players can advance to the $50,000 LAN finals, have been decided.

 

The players in Group C were:

 

  • Kolento - Winner of five major championships.
  • Orange - Winner of Seat Story Cup III
  • Purple - Winner of recent America's Championship and DreamHack Winter
  • Surrender - OGN Hearthstone Masters KR 2 winner
  • Kranich 2015 Asia/Pacific champion

 

Kolento won his first three games to secure a place in the second group stage which meant that Surrender would need to win his last two games to qualify.

 

First up for him was Kolento and his lineup of Mid Paladin, Fast Druid and Trogg Shaman. Surrender won the Secret vs Mid Paladin grind to take a 1-0 lead and then beat Druid with Malylock and Patron to sweep Kolento and make his last match a decider.

 

The final match between Surrender and Purple was a slow and tense affair which started with a Malylock mirror match. Both players played a series of early dragons to try to establish the board but it was Purple, who recently won Dreamhack with a dominant display with the deck, who took the first win. Purple then chose to play Control Warrior, a decision that seemed to be a great choice when Surrender chose to play Patron. Surrender however managed to keep drawing cards and keep up the pressure and eventually levelled the series 1-1. His Malylock and Paladin had easier times and after some tricky play from both players having to work around Nerub'ar Weblord that was generated by a Piloted Shredder, Surrender emerged victorious to advance to the second stage.

Surrender 3-1 11-4
Kolento 3-1 9-5

      The new meta is still forming, but even at this early stage it seems that Kazakus will be a large part of it. This article shows all of the available potions, and explains how the ordering of the spells when cast is likely to change.
      The first trick to remembering all of the options is to realise that  in the potion creation stage, nearly all of the choices are fundamentally the same no matter whether the spell costs 1, 5, or 10 mana. The cost of the spell simply powers up the effect. There are ten different effects to choose from, which are outlined below. The spells are remembered more easily when you group the effects by numbers.
      1, 2, 3 effects:
      Icecap: Freezes 1, 2, or 3 enemy minions.
      Ichor of Undeath: Summons 1, 2, or 3 friendly minions that died this game.
      Kingsblood: Draws 1, 2, or 3 cards.
      Shadow Oil: Adds 1, 2, or 3 random Demons to your hand.

      Other effects in number order:
      Felbloom: Deals 2, 4, or 6 damage to all minions. 
      Goldthorn: Gives your minions 2, 4, or 6 extra health. 
      Netherbloom: Summons a 2/2, 5/5, or 8/8 demon.
      Heart of Fire: Deals 3, 5, or 8 damage.
      Stonescale Oil: Gives 4, 7, or 10 Armor.
      Mystic Wool: This card is unique in that it has no effect for 1 mana. It either turns a random enemy minion into a 1/1 Sheep, or all enemy minions into 1/1 Sheep.

      At the moment, many of the pairings work according to the game engine, rather than in the best order, which means that Kazakus is not working as intended. An example of this would be minions that are getting killed by damage are then getting frozen before leaving play. This is correct in terms of how the game works, as deaths are always processed last, but the spells are going to be made to work outside of the regular game engine. This will make them more powerful and intuitive.

      We are already working on this. Feel free to post stuff like this on our bug forums. (source) This reply on Reddit confirms that the idea of the custom Spell is that it will resolve in an order beneficial to the caster, and that it will likely be changed very soon.
