Festival Lille Results

Recommended Posts

Hearthstone Festival Lille took place over the weekend of July 2-3. 128 players battled it out for a €20,000 prize pool.

Players were divided into sixteen groups of 8 players, with the top two from each group progressing to the second stage. The second stage was double elimination. Both stages were played as best of five Conquest, with a ban.

At the end of the group stage, every one of the 32 remaining players were playing Warrior, with 31 players having Shaman and Warlock in their lineups. This is in line with other recent events, such as the recent Insomnia qualifier where every qualifying player had all three of those classes in their lineup.

The tournament contained several big names, but for the most part was made up of less well known players. Two of the bigger names, Thijs and Rdu, narrowly missed out on tiebreakers in the group stages. However, this didn't prevent the final few players from all being well known pro players.

In the upper bracket, Maverick progressed to the final by beating Mitsuhide 3-2. He had also won his group, with a 6-1 record. Mitsuhide's opponent in the lower bracket was Nicslay, who reached the top eight of the Europe Winter Championship earlier in the year. Mitsuhide came through this match 3-1 to get to the Grand Final, and a rematch with Maverick.

The final was played with winner's advantage, which meant that to win the title, Mitsuhide would need to win two best of five matches if he were to become champion.  The lineups were as follows:

Maverick: Tempo Mage, Mid Shaman, Control Dragon Warrior, Warlock

Mitsuhide: Hybrid Hunter, Aggro Shaman, Zoo Warlock, Dragon Warrior

Maverick banned Warrior, Mitsuhide banned Warlock. The match again went to 2-2, with Maverick's Tempo Mage taking on Mid Hunter. Maverick had already managed to beat the Mage with both Warrior and Shaman, and again managed to keep the Hunter off the board in the deciding game, and took down the title 3-2. This was an impressive win, and builds on his recent top eight at DreamHack Summer.

The English version VOD of the match can be found on Thijs' Twitch channel.
