Hearthstone EU: December 2015 Ranked Play and HWC Point Standings

Recommended Posts

Blizzard have released the final standings from Ranked Play Season 21, which is the first season that counts towards the Hearthstone World Championship (HWC). They have also updated their standings page for World Championship points. In Europe, Russian player ShtanUdachi topped both lists, although he shares his lead in the HWC race with Greensheep.


ShtanUdachi (ШтанУдачи) is known for playing a lot of Hearthstone. In July he became the first player to get 10,000 wins in both Ranked and Arena on the same server. He won a qualifier to play in StarSeries late last year, and although he went 1-3 in a tough group, winning the qualifier shows that he's no stranger to tournament play. We can expect to see him put up a good fight to get to the World Championship.

The top 20 EU ladder rankings for Season 21 were as follows:

J4CKIECHAN in second place is a player that some people will not be familiar with. However, he is known for playing a deck referred to as Egg Druid, which many people will have run into on ladder. Egg Druid is a deck that basically plays incredibly cheap minions, and mixes them with cards such as Nerubian Egg and Savage Roar. The deck then tries to get an early lethal, and refuels its hand with Jeeves or Cult Master if it runs out of aggression.

Crane333 is regarded by his peers as one of the best players in the world. It should only be a matter of time before he wins something big and seeing him on this list so early means he's definitely someone to keep an eye on.

At this early stage of the HWC, it is no surprise that the points roughly mirror the first Ranked Play standings, as there are not many tournaments to throw into the mix yet. Greensheep, however, has 5 points from his top four finish at Dreamhack Winter, to go with 10 points from a top 25 finish on the Asian ladder, which puts him level with ShtanUdachi overall. As a previous top sixteen finisher at the World Championship, Greensheep is definitely another to keep an eye on.
