The seven players who will be invited to Insomnia 58 for the $30,000 Hearthstone Truesilver Championship, alongside champion Ness, were decided through at The Sacred Trial invitational qualifier on June 28-29.

As reported previously, the players were divided into four groups and the winners of each group qualified immediately. The format was best of five Last Hero Standing, with a ban. The group standings were as follows:

Group A:   Ostkaka (4-0),   Eloise (3-1),   Boar Control (2-2),   Lifecoach (0-3),   Ek0p (0-3)

Group B:   Naiman (4-0),   Powder (3-1),   StrifeCro (2-2),   Thijs (2-2),   Orange (0-4)

Group C:   Firebat (3-0),   Xixo (3-1),   Chakki (2-2),   Zalae (1-3),   SuperJJ (0-3)

Group D:   Gaara (3-1),   Dog (3-1),   Hoej (2-2),   Rdu (1-3),   AKA Wonder (1-3)

The matches between Ek0p and Lifecoach, and Firebat and SuperJJ  were not played, as they would have had no bearing on the standings.

The second and third placed players in each group then played a single elimination event to decide the remaining three places. The players who came through with two straight wins were Chakki and Xixo. This left Eloise and Dog to play off for third place, and the final invite.

In the final match, Eloise took a 2-0 lead and looked to be headed to victory. She matched up against Dog's Aggro Shaman with first her Dragon Warrior, and then her Zoo. Surprisingly she lost both games, which set up a Tempo Mage vs Shaman game. This time, she managed to complete her victory, and qualified for the main event. Dog was runner-up at Insomnia 57 and it remains to be seen if he will now travel to enter in August.

Of the twenty players in the qualifying event, all twenty brought Shaman. Eighteen brought Warrior, and eighteen brought Warlock. All of the top twelve players brought all three of those classes. 

The VOD of the second day is available here.
