Today, 22 out of 256 members of the New York City Hearthstone Fireside clashed in a Single Elimination (Best of 3) Tournament.
The final match was a very exciting one, with attendees sitting on the edge of their seats as they spectated the match on the TV screen. The first match was mage vs mage. The second match was mage vs warrior. That second match was very exciting and lengthy taking both players into fatigue. The win could really have gone both ways, but two Brawl decided the victor of the second match. One may argue it was luck, but the truth is that both contenders were pretty good.
However, the third match against a warlock was devastating to the Warrior, but overall a good tournament finals. Worthy of joining the World Championship. Will we get to see any of them in the big leagues? Only time will tell.
