The Americas Spring Preliminary took place over the weekend to decide the eight players that would advance to the Americas Spring Championship. After two tough days of double elimination action, the players who survived were: Cydonia, Napoleon, Rosty, Pnc, Bradfordlee, Duane, Deerjason, and Joster. The format was best of five conquest, with a ban.

The European Preliminary had numerous big names progress, while in America it turned out to be the week of those trying to make a name for themselves. The biggest name to qualify was Deerjason, who reached the top eight of the 2014 Americas playoffs, missing out on BlizzCon that year due to a loss to eventual semi-finalist DTwo.  People will also be aware of Napoleon, who can often be found talking about high level Hearthstone in Twitch streams.

The qualifying lineups were as follows:

Bradfordlee: Aggro Shaman, Miracle Rogue, Reno Warlock, Tempo Warrior (with Leeroy Jenkins)

Cydonia: Miracle Rogue, Aggro Shaman, Reno Warlock, Pirate Warrior

Deerjason: Tempo Warrior, Zoo Warlock, Aggro Shaman (pictured below), Freeze Mage

Duane: Ramp Druid, N'Zoth Paladin, Aggro Shaman (with Leeroy), Reno Warlock

Joster: Freeze Mage, Aggro Shaman, Zoo Warlock, Tempo Warrior

Pnc: Mid Hunter, Miracle Rogue, Mid Shaman, Tempo Warrior

Rosty: Freeze Mage, Aggro Shaman, Zoo Warlock, Dragon Warrior (pictured below)

Napoleon: Miracle Rogue, Tempo Warrior, Mid Hunter, Mid Shaman

Of the 153 players in the event, 133 (87%) brought Warlock, 126 (82%) brought Shaman, and 109 (71%) brought Warrior. This represents a fairly big rise in Warlock, at the expensive of Warrior, since the Europe Preliminary last week. Those who stuck with Warrior had a spectacular 59% win rate through the event. Priest was the least represented class at the event.

The Americas Spring Championship will take place on the weekend of June 25-26.

      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!
