Truesilver Championship 3 at Insomnia: Results

Recommended Posts

03C0ENa.jpg

The third Truesilver Championship took place over the weekend of 26-28 August. Eight players were invited and eight came through an open Swiss to battle it out for a share of $30,000. The tournament was played as best of five Last Hero Standing.

The invited players were decided by a close qualifier earlier in the year. Gaara was replaced by Rdu to give a lineup of Ostkaka, Firebat, Naiman, Rdu, Ness, Eloise, Chakki and Xixo. 102 players entered the open Swiss, which added eight more strong players to the lineup. Faeli (7-0), SuperJJ, Fire, BoarControl, Ekop, derf2000 (all 6-1), Xzirez, and Vinz (5-2) all qualified for the second stage.

The second stage was double elimination groups. The final standings in those were as follows:

Group A: Vinz (2-0), Ness (2-1), Faeli (1-2), Eloise (0-2)

Group B: SuperJJ (2-0), Ostkaka (2-1),  Xzriez (1-2),   Firebat (0-2)

Group C: Chakki (2-0), Fire (2-1), Rdu (1-2), derf2000 (0-2)

Group D: Xixo (2-0), Ekop (2-1), Naiman (1-2), BoarControl (0-2)

The tournament then became single elimination, and the final was an all German affair between Xixo and Ek0p. Many of the top players made mistakes in this event, but these two played solid Hearthstone throughout, and it was good to see them rewarded by getting to the final.

Xixo brought Malygos Druid, Murloc Paladin, Miracle Rogue, and Aggro Shaman.

Ekop brought  Yogg Druid, Aggro Shaman, Zoo Warlock, and C'Thun Warrior.

Ekop banned Rogue, while Xixo banned Shaman. The opening game was a long one with Ekop grinding out a win against Druid with his Warrior deck. Xixo countered this with his strong Paladin matchup to level the scores at 1-1. Ekop's Zoo prayed on the weakness of the slow early start that Paladin can sometimes get, and he again led at 2-1 but Xixo overcame the odds with Shaman to take the match to a deciding game. In that game Ekop decided to hold on to a Wrath for two turns instead of killing either a Sir Finley Mrrgglton, or a Tuskarr Totemic, and this paid dividends when he was able to take out a Flametongue Totem on the following turn. This play helped him to snowball to a win to take down his first major trophy. On the last turn of the match where Ekop had guaranteed lethal, he hovered over Yogg-Saron, Hope's End for a few seconds to work the crowd, which led to many cries of "NO!" from the assembled audience and casters alike.

The VOD for the event is available here.

Really happy for Ek0p, he was getting a lot of unnecessary hate.

Even though i think Xixo played better in the entire tournament, but still :)

@CodeRazorI suppose you weren't around when he started a drama with Trump, and all that other trashtalking. He doesn't act as bad as he used to, but there is still some hate left over.

      A small server-side update is coming to Hearthstone tomorrow. Floating Watcher will be moved to Tavern Tier 4 and a bug that caused Galakrond the Nightmare's cost-reduction priority to negate the cost-increase effects on some cards will be fixed.

      Greetings Friends!
      We have a small 16.2.4 server-side patch going live tomorrow with the following changes:
      Floating Watcher is moving from Tavern Tier 3 →  Tavern Tier 4 Fixed an issue that caused Galakrond the Nightmare 's cost-reduction priority to negate the cost-increase effects of cards such as Boompistol Bully and Loatheb*. Once these changes have gone live, I’ll be sure to update this thread!

      Blizzard has released a small client update (v. 16.2.3) with various bug fixes today. Soul Juggler will no longer cause de-syncing, Risky Skipper is now a Pirate minion type, and more.
      Don't forget to check out our Galakrond's Awakening Solo Adventure guide now that Chapter III has become available.

      Hey Friends,
      Just a short time ago, we started rolling out a small client update that addresses the following issues:
      Fixed an issue where de-syncing (a discrepancy between what the client shows vs. what is actually occurring on the server) would sometimes occur when Soul Juggler was dealing damage or when Deathrattles spawned minions in Battlegrounds. Art for Heroes + Hero Powers will now properly populate on mobile devices when the optional data download is paused. When the Air Raid Twinspell is played, the copy generated will now be the correct rarity. Risky Skipper is now a Pirate minion type, as originally intended. Spin 'em Up and Small Repairs will no longer have their mana cost displayed in red when generated from Keeper Stalladris. Please keep us updated if you encounter any new issues! Much love friendos ❤️
      Cheers,
      Chris_Attalus
