Seat Story V Results and Wall Shaman Decklist

Recommended Posts

The fifth edition of SeatStory Cup concluded yesterday, and Lifecoach emerged the winner. He takes home $10,000 for his efforts.

SeatStory is one of the most popular regular Hearthstone events. Not only does it boast a $20,000 prize pool, but as all of the players effectively live together for several days, and largely cast the tournament themselves, the laid back attitude of the casting makes it a fun time for competitors and viewers alike.

The schedule for the event is intensive. 32 players compete in eight groups with the top two in each group progressing to the top 16. This was then repeated in a second group stage to find a top eight. The format for these stages was Last Hero Standing, with a ban.

 The big story of the first group stage was Frodan's 3-0 victories over StrifeCro and Ostkaka. He used the deck currently being affectionately described as BogChamp Shaman. This deck uses Earth Elemental and Bog Creeper, with Ancestral Spirit to set up a continuous wall of taunts. The variant will likely take the more descriptive name of Wall Shaman eventually. While Frodan was not the only player to use the deck, his 6-0 start was spectacular enough to draw attention to the possibilities of the deck being viable in competitive play.

After the two group stages were complete, the top eight became best of seven single elimination with a ban. Unusually for best of seven, the format remained as Last Hero Standing. The results of the quarter-finals are listed below:

  Lifecoach 4-1   Eloise 

  Thijs 4-2   Rdu

  Naiman 4 -3   Zalae

  J4ackiechan 4-2   Ostkaka

In the first semi-final, Lifecoach and Thijs had a predictably close match. The two G2 players had brought the same lineup of Druid, Hunter, Rogue, Shaman, and C'Thun Warrior. Both players banned Shaman. In a match that lasted over two hours, Lifecoach eventually ran out a 4-3 winner as his Warrior managed to stabilise just in time to take down Thijs Druid.

In the other semi-final, J4ckiechan and Naiman also both banned Shaman. Naiman's lineup was Druid, Tempo Mage, Dragon Warrior, and Zoo Warlock. J4ckiechan brought greedy variants of Druid, Tempo Mage, N'zoth Paladin, and Dragon Warlock. J4ckiechan is known for his innovative decks, and this tournament was no different. His Warlock deck had Sunwalker, while his banned Shaman deck was a version of Wall Shaman using Frost Giant. His lineup managed to outlast Naiman, and he took a 4-3 victory.

In the final, Lifecoach banned Shaman, while J4ckiechan banned Rogue. Lifecoach took an early 3-1 lead, which meant that J4ckiechan's Warlock was going to have to beat Warrior, Hunter, and Shaman all in a row. He managed to win the first two, but Lifecoach's Midrange Shaman ground out another long match to seal the victory 4-3.

      Blizzard released the 17.2.2 client patch for Hearthstone to fix a bug related to the closed shop that occurred due to a missing runtime dependency.
      (Source)
      We’re currently in the process of deploying a 17.2.2 client patch that will address the following items:
      Fixed a bug that would cause a crash on mobile when clicking the eye to see who is spectating. Fixed a few various issues that would lock the game state when playing certain cards from hand. Fixed a bug where some players in Europe were only given the option of Warrior as their free deck after graduating the new player ranks. Fixed a bug where the shop would be closed when launching Hearthstone due to a missing runtime dependency. If the shop is still closed after updating to 17.2.2, try swapping to another region on the launcher and swapping back before opening Hearthstone again.
      The incorrect Mana display bug for mobile users will be fixed in the next update.

      Any updates on when the incorrect mana bug for mobile players will be fixed?
      Hey! This will be fixed in our next major update.

      A new blog post has been released, detailing a dozen card changes coming to the game on Monday 18th of May.
      Shaman is getting some much needed help, since three of its cards will be buffed - although it is debatable if these buffs will be enough to move the class out of the bottom.
      As far as the nerfs are concerned, two more Demon Hunter cards (who would have thought?) are getting toned down. Scavenger's Ingenuity, Shadowjeweler Hanar, Blackjack Stunner, Imprisoned Scrap Imp, Bloodboil Brute, Bloodsworn Mercenary are also getting tweaked.
      Nerfed cards will be eligible for a refund until June 1st.
      The patch also brings a bug fix for Ethereal Conjurer, which was causing the game to lock by not offering any Discover options. 
      Don't forget you can grab a free Nemsy until May 19, as part of Patch 17.2.0.
