Hearthstone Festival Lille took place over the weekend of July 2-3. 128 players battled it out for a €20,000 prize pool.

Players were divided into sixteen groups of 8 players, with the top two from each group progressing to the second stage. The second stage was double elimination. Both stages were played as best of five Conquest, with a ban.

At the end of the group stage, every one of the 32 remaining players were playing Warrior, with 31 players having Shaman and Warlock in their lineups. This is in line with other recent events, such as the recent Insomnia qualifier where every qualifying player had all three of those classes in their lineup.

The tournament contained several big names, but for the most part was made up of less well known players. Two of the bigger names, Thijs and Rdu, narrowly missed out on tiebreakers in the group stages. However, this didn't prevent the final few players from all being well known pro players.

In the upper bracket, Maverick progressed to the final by beating Mitsuhide 3-2. He had also won his group, with a 6-1 record. Mitsuhide's opponent in the lower bracket was Nicslay, who reached the top eight of the Europe Winter Championship earlier in the year. Mitsuhide came through this match 3-1 to get to the Grand Final, and a rematch with Maverick.

The final was played with winner's advantage, which meant that to win the title, Mitsuhide would need to win two best of five matches if he were to become champion.  The lineups were as follows:

Maverick: Tempo Mage, Mid Shaman, Control Dragon Warrior, Warlock

Mitsuhide: Hybrid Hunter, Aggro Shaman, Zoo Warlock, Dragon Warrior

Maverick banned Warrior, Mitsuhide banned Warlock. The match again went to 2-2, with Maverick's Tempo Mage taking on Mid Hunter. Maverick had already managed to beat the Mage with both Warrior and Shaman, and again managed to keep the Hunter off the board in the deciding game, and took down the title 3-2. This was an impressive win, and builds on his recent top eight at DreamHack Summer.

The English version VOD of the match can be found on Thijs' Twitch channel.

      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.
