SL i-League Hearthstone StarSeries Group B2 results

Recommended Posts

14766-sl-i-league-hearthstone-starseries

 

The second group stage of the Global League portion of the $50,000 SL i-League StarSeries was split into two groups. The second of these contained Trump, Lifecoach, Kolento, and Amaz, who battled it out to see who would join Surrender and Dog in the LAN finals in January. The format was best of five, double elimination conquest.


 
The players brought the following lineups:
  • Trump: Secret Paladin, Zoolock, Aggro Shaman
  • Lifecoach: Demon Handlock, Mid Druid, Reno Paladin
  • Kolento: Secret Paladin, Mid Druid, Malylock
  • Amaz: Hybrid Hunter, Tempo Mage, Malylock

Match one: Trump vs Lifecoach

 
Trump brought the same three decks that Surrender qualified with in the other group and in this match had similar results. His Secret Paladin smashed through Demon Handlock, his Shaman did the same to Reno (after taking 12 to his own face to clear a Tirion and protect his board), and his Zoo went through Druid giving Trump a very rapid win.
 
 

Match two: Kolento vs Amaz

 
Amaz brought two aggressive decks and Malylock and his aggression worked just as it did for Trump in the previous match as he raced out to a 2-0 lead beating Mid Druid with both Hybrid Hunter and Tempo Mage. Kolento however took a pivotal mirror Match with Malylock and completed the reverse sweep with Mid Druid and Secret Paladin. Kolento showing that a more standard lineup can still get the job done.
 
 

Qualification Match: Trump vs Kolento

 
 
Kolento took a surprising lead as his Paladin beat Shaman and his Druid beat Zoo leaving him to try to find a win with Malylock against three aggro decks. Trump's Shaman got the job done but a greedy play by Kolento against Zoo where he chose to not Hellfire in a great looking spot enabled him to make an even better play several turns later and take down the match 3-1 and qualify for the LAN finals.
 
 

Elimination Match: Amaz vs Lifecoach

 
 
Lifecoach and Amaz both repeated their patterns from the first round with Amaz taking a 2-0 lead and being left with Malylock to try to find a win. The second of those wins coming from a double 4 roll from his Boombots. As with his first round, Amaz then lost two games in a row with Malylock to end up in a decider. This time though, he managed to get an Emperor Thaurissan to stick on the board for three turns against Lifecoach's Handlock and that was enough to secure a 3-2 victory and Eliminate Lifecoach from this phase of the tournament. He will get one more chance to qualify in the Last Chance event.
 
 
 

Qualification Match: Trump vs Amaz

 
 
The last match was as close as the lineups looked and the first four games were split 2-2 leaving the last match to be between Trump's Secret Paladin and Amaz's Malylock. Trump looked to have secured the match and put Amaz to three life on the same turn as playing a Mysterious Challenger. Amaz had all the answers though and was able to cast them thanks to his Emperor from the previous turn. This allowed him to stabilize and win the match 3-2, which qualified him for the LAN finals.

      A new Legendary Warrior Minion has been revealed, marking the defeat of 25 million bosses in the Blackrock Crash Tavern Brawl.
       
      The dust has barely settled after the Blackrock Crash Part 1, but the Hearthstone player base has already smashed through 25 million Tavern Brawl bosses and earned the fourth and final FIRE FEST-E.V.I.L. card reveal. Meet the new Warrior Legendary, Armagedillo.

      It's a 6 mana 4/7 Beast with Taunt that gives +2/2 to every Taunt Minion in your hand at the end of your turn. It's reminiscent of Grimy Gadgeteer and Bolster - neither of which were played very often. Still, even under-appreciated mechanics like hand-buffing can be powerful on the right card.
      There aren't many great Taunt Minions in Warrior's arsenal right now, so this might be a sign that we can expect to see some in Saviors of Uldum.
      World of Warcraft players may recognize Armagedillo as a rare beast that spawns in the Uldum desert. It drops its tail as an item, which can be used as a mace. This one appears to have been kitted out with some serious ordnance by Blastmaster Boom.

      Arch-Villain Rafaam joins the fray this week as the Blackrock Crash continues.
       
      The second week of the Blackrock Crash has kicked off today, continuing the FIRE FEST-E.V.I.L. celebrations. It's a Dungeon Run-style Tavern Brawl: pick a member of the League of E.V.I.L. to play as and fight through a gauntlet of eight bosses, building your deck as you go.
      It's broadly the same as Part 1, but this time Arch-Villain Rafaam joins the fray as a playable hero. Nice of him to lend a hand and all, but I think we've got this - Hearthstone players have already defeated 25 million Blackrock Crash bosses.
      The Big Bad himself is pretty powerful, as you might expect. His starting deck is decent and includes two amazing treasures in Master Scheme and Gloves of Mugging. His Hero Power, Arch-Villainy, steals a card from your opponents deck then, if it's a Minion, puts it onto the board immediately.
      As before, beat the first four bosses of the Brawl to earn a Saviors of Uldum pack to open when the next expansion releases. Beat all eight with Rafaam and you'll earn a Golden copy of Rafaam's Scheme. Perfect for discounting your Golden Jumbo Imp.

      (Times pictured are in BST)
      The full schedule of community card reveals for Saviors of Uldum has been added to the Hearthstone website.
      It's become standard during expansion buildups for Blizzard to give a few cards to popular content creators to share, and Saviors of Uldum will be continuing the tradition.
      The schedule includes a total of 51 cards to be revealed by various sources from across the Hearthstone community - you can click through a card to find out where it will be revealed. The first one will be shown on the Chinese streaming platform Huya on July 19th; the first English language card reveal looks to be on Firebat's Youtube channel on the same day.
      Alongside reveal times, we get to see snippets of artwork for the new cards, so let the speculation begin. (Is that Heistbaron Togwaggle in the artwork of the final card to be revealed?)
      In Rise of Shadows, streamers received their cards locked inside fiendish puzzle boxes. This resulted in some memorable solutions. Here's hoping we have more shenanigans to look forward to.
      Check out our Saviors of Uldum hub for more information on the expansion and every card revealed thus far.

      The Plague card for Shaman has been revealed on Twitter, the third of four cards to be revealed as rewards for the FIRE FEST-E.V.I.L. community challenge.
       
      The Plague card for Shaman has been revealed by the Hearthstone Twitter account: Plague of Murlocs!

      This is the third card revealed as part of the FIRE FEST-E.V.I.L. community challenge. That means that in just five days, the Hearthstone playerbase has defeated around 19 millionBlackrock Crash bosses. Give yourselves a collective pat on the back. Don't stop just yet though; a fourth and final card will be revealed at 25 million boss wins (and this last one will be a Legendary).
      Plague of Murlocs itself is a pretty powerful-looking card. Shaman can't answer Mountain Giant + Conjurer's Calling with any real consistency right now, so this seems like a welcome answer - although it won't do much against opponents who are playing, well, Murloc Shaman. It could even be a buff to your own board in a pinch, since random Murlocs are probably better than Totems and 1/1s.
      Check out our Saviors of Uldum Hub to catch up on this weekend's other new card reveals, including yesterday's trio of 1-Health Paladin Minions.
