1 post in this topic


The SL i-League StarSeries tournament concluded this weekend and the winner was Lanshengzhe from China, who is also known as Robin. He beat Cipher 4-1 in the final to take home $20,000. All matches until the Final were best of five conquest with a ban. The final was best of seven conquest with a ban and a revive.

The group stages were played as an all play all format, with the winner going straight into the semi-final stages. The last placed player in each group was eliminated. The results of the groups were as follows:

Group A: Kolento (3-0), Cipher (1-2), Dog (1-2), Lvxiaobu (1-2)
Group B: Lanshengze (2-1), Surrender (2-1), StanCifka (1-2), JAB (1-2)

In the quarter-finals, Dog beat new NaVi signing, Surrender, 3-2. Cipher beat Stan Cifka 3-2.


Semi Final One: Cipher vs Kolento

In the first semi-final, both players banned Druid. Game one was Paladin vs Paladin. Cipher brought a standard looking Secret Paladin, while Kolento brought Murloc Paladin. Kolento took a 1-0 lead, as wave after wave of board clears made it impossible for Cipher to deliver anywhere near enough damage to threaten lethal. Cipher stuck with Secret Paladin for game two, and a turn one Secretkeeper survived for six turns to level the scores at 1-1. Game three saw Cipher's Freeze Mage take down the Zoo deck, and in game four his Combo Renolock again beat Zoo to give Cipher a 3-1 victory. All three of his wins were against Zoo.

Semi Final Two: Dog vs Lanshengzhe

Lanshengzhe took a very fast 1-0 lead with Face Shaman against Control Priest. He then doubled that lead nearly as quickly as his Zoo deck defeated Dog's Demon Handlock. Dog's Handlock deck then beat Secret Paladin to pull back a game, but he couldn't beat it with Control Priest in game four, and Lanshengzhe advanced to the final.

Final: Cipher vs Lanshengzhe

The final still used a ban, but players were allowed to revive one deck after it had won. Cipher banned Druid again, while Lanshengzhe banned Mage. Cipher looked like he was in control in the first game with Renolock against Zoo, but a technical issue meant the game was replayed. Langshengzhe won the rematch, and then went 2-0 ahead by beating Secret Paladin with his Shaman deck. He then revived his Shaman for a rematch, which he won again, to go 3-0 ahead. In game four, Lanshengzhe made a big mistake when he need to tap into a Power Overwhelming to put on his Doomguard for the win, but he drew the card before playing the Doomguard, meaning he had to discard it, which gave Cipher a win with his Renolock. Cipher revived his deck, but Lanshengzhe held his nerve in spite of his previous error and took the match 4-1

Lanshengzhe plays for Yolo Miracle, under the name Robin, who recently finished second in Team Story China.

      We are all expecting the announcement of the next Hearthstone expansion at BlizzCon 2016. And we might have just gotten the very first hint about it!
      Υesterday night, the @PlayHearthstone account on Twitter posted the following image. This may be nothing at all or it may be an actual clue about the upcoming Hearthstone expansion.
      Τhe disclaimer of the image reads:
      In World of Warcraft, Gadgetzan is a Goblin city situated in the desert of Tanaris, in the southeast corner of Kalimdor. Gadgeztan used to be a mainland city, but after the Cataclysm hit Azeroth it now enjoys a beach and the sea.
      Redditor BillHicksBoiii noticed three days ago that the domain has been taken by Blizzard. It's difficult to theorise what the expansion could be, though. The obvious link is Goblins, but we've already had the Goblins vs. Gnomes expansion. Unless we are getting a revamp...
      You can also notice a pirate ship in the background of the image, so perhaps a pirate themed expansion?! Moreover, as we've already said, Gadgetzan was one of the cities affected by the Cataclysm. Basically, once Deathwing was awakened, he caused the whole world of Azeroth to change dramatically with earthquakes, tsunamis, the invasion of his forces and just his very own presence. Since Deathwing was originally corrupted by the Old Gods, the first expansion we got this year, it is possible that this expansion may be about Deathwing, his following the Twilight's Hammer or the Cataclysm.
      Of course, all of this is still in the realm of speculation. The image might mean nothing at all! What do you think?
