SLTV: Ostkaka will miss LAN-finals
Unpleasant news for all the fans of Hearthstone and our Hearthstone team in particular, but a very good news for the participants of SLTV StarSeries Season 1: Sebastian "Ostkaka" Engwall decided not to go to SLTV StarSeries LAN-finals in Kyiv.
The main reason why Ostkaka will miss the event is his desire to focus on the preparation to the upcoming BlizzCon 2015, which will be held on 6-7 November 2015. Our player is aspired to fight over Hearthstone champion title and a prize pool of $ 250 000. Surely, it'd be wrong to go unprepared to a tournament of such scale.
Comment by Natus Vincere's COO Igor "Caff" Sidorenko:
"We are to announce that Ostkaka won't be able to attend the finals of StarLadder for personal reasons. We are particularly sorry to announce it one day before the flight, which lands the tournament's organizers in troubles and deprives the viewers of the good games by our player. We express our gratitude to the organizers for understanding. We promiss to please everyone with amazing games in the next season".
