Hs-arena: Xixo enters the battle!

 

Today Hs-arena grand opening invitational begins! This is the last Hearthstone grand tournament before BlizzCon. The event will be held online on 23-25 October. The prize pool is $ 5 000. Of 32 contestants, 24 players were invited by the organizers, while 8 had to pass qualifiers to participate in the tournament. Such large quantity of participants is rather rare. The winner of the champion will have to pass 2 group stages and defeat all the remaining rivals in play-off. 

 

Na`Vi player Germany Sebastian "Xixo" Bentert is among 24 contestants, who received a well deserved invite. His recent achievements are very impressive! For example, he won The eSports Arena and Eizo Community Cup #1. Sebastian will play in G group, which seems quite easy for him. Germany Xixo will have to play against all the players in his group and he needs only 2 victories to get to the next stage. Let's hope, he'll do it easily.

 

Let's wish our player good luck and support him in his way to the champion's title! Watch the official stream cast by United Kingdom Callum Leslie, United Kingdom Simon «Sottle» Welch and reigning world champion United States James «Firebat» Kostesich. The first match of Germany Xixo will begin at 18:30 CEST. Don't miss!
