What an amazing event last week’s SeatStory Cup was for all Hearthstone enthusiasts! Thirty-two of the best players in the world travelled to Krefeld for the fifth edition of TakeTV’s tournament, sponsored by our partner NEEDforSEAT®.
From G2’s team, Dima “Rdu” Radu, Thijs “Thijs” Molendijk and Adrian “Lifecoach” Koy made it to the playoffs, with Jakub “Lothar” Szygulski crashing out in the first group stage following two close matches against Frederik “Hoej” Nielsen and Ole “Naiman” Batyrbekov.
Sadly, the draw was not kind to our players, who were all placed on the same side of the bracket, meaning that only one of them could reach the final. The last-eight round saw an exciting match between Thijs and rdu, which the Dutchman won 4-2. Thijs was then matched up against Lifecoach, and it ended up being one of the most exciting series in many, many months, with the German coming out on top after seven nail-biting games.
Lifecoach went on to face Jack “J4CKIECHAN” Hutton, a young player from Fade2Karma that has been rising through the ranks in recent months. With a powerful display with his C’Thun Warrior deck, Lifecoach stormed to a 3-1 lead to get one game away of victory. J4CKIECHAN then picked up two games in a row with his Dragon Warlock deck, but he could not sustain the pressure from Lifecoach’s Shaman as the final game went the German’s way.
