hearthstone Hearthstone: European Preliminary Results and Stats

3 posts in this topic

The Europe Spring Preliminary is over, and the eight players that will advance to the Europe Spring Championship have been decided. The qualifiers from the upper bracket were Crane333, Loyan, Thijs, and AKA Wonder. Turna, Georgec, Casie, and Iner also advanced.


As the event was held on Battlefy, there are also plenty of stats available on the meta. There were 152 participating players in the event. 123 (81%) brought Warrior, while 122 (80%) brought Shaman. This ties in with our meta discussion from the ladder a week ago. Shaman and Warrior also had two of the highest three win rates. Druid topped the list with 54%, but the sample size was very small. Druid, Priest, and especially Hunter, were very lightly represented in the event.

Of the top eight, every player brought Warlock. With five RenoLock and three Zoo being used. This is of note, as Zoo outnumbered Reno in a 2 to 1 ratio at the start.

Much of the red tape surrounding the Winter event has been sorted out, and other than the issue with the multiple account ruling, it seems that there were very few problems this time around.  Some of the locations had poor internet, or were too noisy, and that will obviously have to be worked on. It does seem that the event is getting better overall though, and Blizzard are finding their way quickly.

 


The players were generally happy with the state of the game. The consensus seems to be that the game is more skillful with cards like Imp-losion, Dr. Boom, and Piloted Shredder leaving the game. The results seem to back this up, with the notable players putting up a far better performance this time around than in Winter.

Many of the decks were unsurprising. Of note, Georgec played a Tournament Medic in his Freeze Mage. The main surprise was AKAWonder's lineup. He brought C'Thun in Warrior, RenoLock, and Druid. He rounded out his lineup with NZoth Paladin. He posted his decklists on Twitter.
 


The decks played in the top eight broke down as follows:

Druid: (1) C'Thun
Hunter: (0)
Mage: (3) Freeze
Paladin: (4) N'Zoth
Priest: (0)
Rogue: (3) Miracle
Shaman: (7) 4 Aggro, 3 Midrange 
Warlock: (8) 5 Reno, 3 Zoo
Warrior: (6) 4 Tempo, 1 Control, 1 C'Thun

      We have a new Tavern Brawl this week! Its name is Spellbook Duel.
      For this Brawl, you choose your class and then you pick 10 different cards to fill your deck. Instead of drawing cards each turn, you Discover a copy of a card from your deck. If you use card drawing mechanics, like Arcane Intellect, you don't actually draw from your deck. You will, in fact, get a 1-mana spell called Peruse, which again allows you to Discover a copy of a card from your deck.
      Obviously, there are a lot of possible deck combinations you can use to tackle this new Tavern Brawl. The first things that pop into mind are anything that contains Reno Jackson and Kazakus, as well as Jade Druid to extend the possibility of getting these precious Jade Idols. Once again, Mage is the clear winner of this Brawl with cards like Sorcerer's Apprentice, Arcane Intellect and Flamewaker.
      Bear in mind that some cards are not recommended, since they remove cards from your Discover pool. Examples are Fel Reaver and Tracking. Moreover, cards that put another card directly into play, like Mysterious Challenger and Mad Scientist, will also make your Discover pool smaller. Lastly, according to a Reddit user, Renounce Darkness won't deduct 1 mana from the cards you discover throughout the game.
      There are already a lot of disgusting decks for Spellbook Duel out there. We are waiting for your suggestions and any other useful info in the comments!
