The Place for Your Hearthstone Needs!
We are pleased to interview Richard Sambrano, or MasterChard; the first Philippines player to win a Hearthstone Alley Brawl!
A tournament regular, MasterChard is ready to take the scene by storm!
Below is the interview transcript:
Hey MasterChard; congratulations on winning the 3rd Brawl! Will you like to introduce yourself to our readers?
Castinggo… Im Richard Sambrano.. 35 yo, manager of one of the BPO here in the Philippines, for a Medical Account. Married with 10 yo lovely daughter, from the city of Cavite.
I am one of the pioneer Magic: The Gathering (MTG) players here in the Philippines. Hobbies: playing online games such as DotA 2, LoL, and Diablo 3.
How do you feel winning the tournament?
I feel overwhelmed.
What are your thoughts in bringing a Shaman deck for this tournament?
Shaman is the best.. Anti-Aggro because of Lightning Storm and Feral Spirit, and Anti-Control because of Hex and Earth Shock, with lots of card drawers.
What do you think of the Southeast Asian Hearthstone players?
They are great, I think we can beat all NA and EU players in the future. Sharing thoughts and ideas will help the HS SEA community better than the others. So thanks to you for having this tournament because we can be able to gain camaraderie to all our fellow HS Sea Community.
As there are no news of any expansions, where do you think the meta will be headed towards?
Update: The Curse of Naxxramas (expansion) has just been announced!
Still meta will be budgeted Aggro Decks like Warlock Zoo, Shaman Budget and lots of Hunters, but still I think Shaman will make it through.
Thanks for this interview with us MasterChard; any shout-outs you will like to make?
