The StreamMe Team Twist tournament took place over the weekend. Sixteen teams battled it out for a $2500 first prize, and after two long days of competition, Team Archon emerged as the champions. The format was best of five Last Hero Standing, with a ban.

Team Archon featured Zalae alongside Americas winter champion, Amnesiac. Their route to the final was a difficult one. In the first round they overcame team SALTBOYS comprising of Rdu and Chakki 3-2. Next up were Complexity, with recent qualifiers from the Europe spring preliminary, Loyan and Crane333. Archon again came through a tough encounter 3-2, taking down RenoLock in the last game with their Face Shaman. In the semi-final they played the Gamers League pair of Diggen and Devou, two players who have also performed well in recent Hearthstone Championship Tour events. This time they came through 3-1, to set up a match with Celestial's team of SilentStorm and Neobility in the final. The final was a short match, Archon spotted a weakness win Celestial's lineup and banned Shaman. This enabled their Freeze Mage to sweep through to a 3-0 win by beating Druid, Zoo, and Rogue.

Archon's lineup was an interesting one. They brought the more regular decks of Zoo and Aggro Shaman, alongside the control that Freeze Mage provides. For their fourth deck however, they brought Patron Warrior. Patron is widely regarded as inferior to Tempo Warrior at the moment, but in the meta at the tournament, it was a great choice. Zalae tweeted the decklists after the event.

The final was not the only sweep of the event. There were six of them in the event, but it was notable that they were achieved with five different classes: Zoo, Control Warrior, Shaman, Rogue and Freeze Mage. This seems to be a great indicator that the meta is balanced, with no deck consistently sweeping through opposing lineups.
