The Place for Your Hearthstone Needs!
The event was organized by Hearthstone Alley, with Epic Gaming Television as their stream partner, and was part of the ongoing Gaming Entertainment E-sports Exhibition (GE3) at Downtown East.
After a grueling two days of competition, which involved a round robin group stage, followed by a double elimination play-offs, Zeys fought through what everyone coined the ‘Group of Death‘ (two of the players in this group ended up in the top three), and emerged Champion with a clean 3-0 victory in the Grand Finals against Unistar!

Deck 1: Warlock
A highly aggressive deck filled with Charge minions and a very low mana curve, it intends to end the game fast with its early minion control. Some measures of insurance were added, like Shadowflame (for Area-of-Effect board clear), and Tinkmaster Overspark (for the big minion removal). Zeys used this to great success, including a clean 3-0 sweep in the Grand Finals!
Deck 2: Druid
A well-balanced control deck with answers at every turn; solid removals such as The Black Knight, Tinkmaster Overspark, and the many Druid spells help maintain early board control, while late-game minions like Ragnaros and the big Druid units bring home the game!
Deck 3: Rogue
A semi-control Rogue deck with strong draw, spell and decent late-game firepower!
Sylvannas, Ragnaros, The Black Knight form the legendary cores of all three decks, and the rest of the decks are built around the strengths of each class.
3rd Place: Kero
Two well-known decks; the Warrior Giants One-Turn Kill (OTK), and a Murloc rush deck. The last deck is Kero’s strongest; a solid mid-late game Shaman spell damage deck, with a Malygos as the core!
4th Place: crAzerk
The only deck among the Top 4 that ran Ysera (Paladin), and one of the more budget setups with a total of two legendaries in all three decks.
