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.

 

 

Group C Matches Games
Surrender 3-1 11-4
Kolento 3-1 9-5
Kranich 2-2 8-10

Purple 1-3 6-11

      The latest Hearthstone community contribution allows you to train the skills needed to master Combo Priest: quick thinking, fast mouse movements, strategic decisions and on-the-spot calculations. What's more to ask?!
      Combo or OTK or APM Priest is a reiteration of Combo and Vivid Nightmare Priest that was born with The Boomsday Project thanks to two cards: Topsy Turvy and Test Subject. Dog is credited as the creator and true master of the deck:
      Many have subsequently tried and failed to pilot the deck, which can require almost 100 moves during the 75 seconds of a single turn. Pro players like Trump and Thijs have hilariously failed, while others like Disguised Toast and Kolento kept trying until they got the hang of it.
      Right now, you might be dreading that you don't have the IQ to play this deck. Fear no more: everything can be practiced and Patashu has made the tool for it! Combo Priest Simulator allows you to practice the OTK combo on your browser, while also timing you. You can change the parameters of the starting gamestate, too.
      In all seriousness, the deck's winrate is below average and it's honestly too much trouble for too little gain. Then again, slamming your opponent's face for 100+ damage is quite satisfactory. It would be awesome if someone was brave enough to bring this deck at a tournament: it would be the casters' nightmare!
      Apart from Combo Priest Simulator, we have a guide for Topsy Turvy OTK Priest here on Icy Veins; the guide breaks down the necessary steps of the combo in a useful priority list. Alternatively, you can listen to Aleco trying to explain how the deck works to Patrick (and actually succeeding) in the latest Icy Veins Podcast!
