Team Story is a Chinese team league, which I am part of the casting crew for on Twitch. Teams get two points for the best of eleven main portion of the match. They get one point for a best of five portion that uses the three classes not used in the main match. Going into the penultimate week of the league, six teams were still in contention for the playoffs, but a couple of them needed big wins to stay in the hunt.


With the stepladder nature of the playoffs, and the really close league table, week 13 was a big week for the six remaining teams with chances to win.

The first match of the week saw 7th place Newbee taking on 3rd place World Elite, in an apparent mismatch. Newbee produced a huge shock by taking all three points in convincing fashion, winning the ace match 3-0 and the main match 6-3. This result meant that Vici Gaming would still have a chance of the playoffs if they beat last place Invictus. However, they too lost 3-0 and this eliminated Vici from contention, despite having made up some ground in the second half of the season.

Next up, was Celestial against EDward Gaming. If Celestial could take two points from this match, they would guarantee themselves a spot in the final by coming top of the league. EDward, on the other hand, could guarantee themselves at least a playoff place if they could take all three points. Both portions of the match went to a deciding game, but Celestial ran out the winners of each, to take all three points as they have done so often this season. EDward will have to wait another week to see if they can progress.

The final match of the week was between TongFu and Yolo Miracle. TongFu faced elimination last week in the main portion of their match. In that match they were 5-3 behind, and clawed back to a 6-5 win. This week they needed at least one, but more than likely two, points to stay in contention until week fourteen. Yolo Miracle seemed to take this match a little lightly, with Robin bringing a Druid deck containing Nefarian, Aviana, Tree of Life and Deathwing. That deck lost 2-0 and contributed heavily towards his 3-1 ace match loss. TongFu took a 3-0 lead in the main match but were dragged back to 5-5 before taking the last game of the day to take all three points in the match and remain in contention going into the final week of the season.

Next week is the final week before the playoffs and with Yolo Miracle having to play World Elite, TongFu have got themselves into position where a 3-0 win will definitely qualify them for the playoffs.

      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!
