The Hearthstone Champions League Season 2 was completed this week, and Pavel was the winner of the $5,000 first prize. The format was best of five Conquest.


The league began with sixteen players placed in groups of four, with two from each group qualifying for the single eliminaton knockout stage. The results of each group were as follows:

Group A: StanCifka (2-0), Xixo (2-1), Kolento (1-2). Dog (0-2)
Group B: Pavel (2-0), Ek0p (2-1), Hoej (1-2), RDU (0-2)
Group C: Sjow (2-0), Orange (2-1), Strifecro (1-2), Lifecoach (0-2)
Group D: Thijs (2-0), Ostkaka (2-1), Hanniballz2 (1-2), Tidesoftime (0-2)

In the quarter-finals, Ostkaka beat StanCifka 3-2, Ek0p beat SjoW 3-1, Pavel beat Orange 3-1, and Thijs beat Xixo 3-2.

The semi-finals were both one-sided affairs. Ostkaka beat Ek0p 3-0, despite not getting the best of the matchups. His Zoo deck beat Patron, he then won with Secret Paladin against Zoo and Druid against Patron. In the other match, Pavel swept Thijs' Rogue deck with Zoo, Druid and Freeze Mage to win 3-1. His only loss was with Freeze Mage against Druid.

The final was a close match. In game one Ostaka showed the skills that made him World Champion, by not panicking with his Secret Paladin against Freeze Mage. His timing for removing Pavel's Ice Block, and patience with his Loatheb, gave him a 1-0 lead. He doubled that lead with a win in the Druid mirror, which left him only needing a win with Zoo to secure the title. Pavel was able to keep his focus and levelled the score at 2-2 with wins using Freeze Mage and then his own Zoo. In the final game he pulled off a surprise with Druid against Zoo, which completed the reverse sweep, and gave Pavel his first big tournament title.

Thijs beat Ek0p 3-2 to win the third place playoff match.
