The final standings are in for the April Ranked Play Season, and the top ranked player in the Americas region was NoobOwl. This was the last season to count towards the Spring Preliminaries, and we now know which players have qualified for them on points.


NoobOwl is not a name that many people know, but other than being first this month, NoobOwl was also 54th in March. As always, it seems likely that Blizzard will do an interview so we can find out more about this player in the coming days.

The Americas region is undergoing some changes at the moment. It has the reputation of being the easiest server to get top 100 on. Memes about skill levels aside, the maths of the situation is that there are fewer players on the server, and so fewer players to take the top 100 spots. This has led to many players from Europe moving across, and the top 20 that I usually publish here has required an extension to top 25 this month because of the pure weight of talent in the list.

There are so many big names in that list that I'm not even going to mention the notables. I will however point out that muzzy's last five months have now been 3rd, 5th, 3rd, 6th, 5th. Unsurprisingly, he is also high up on the list of points earners for the season.

Looking further down the points list, AlSkyHigh, dog, Zalae, justsaiyan, Astrogation, Chakki, Fibonacci, TidesofTime, Faramir, wtybill, and PHONETAP are among the many notables to finish in the top 128 and qualify for the preliminary.

One player who is not in the list however, is 2014 World Champion, Firebat. We previously reported that he had probably qualified thanks to the points earned in the MSi EGLX Major, however the tournament finished too late for the points to count for the spring standings. His discussion on this can be found on Reddit, here.

      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!
