The top four players of each region dueled against each other in Hearthstone Grandmasters Season 1 games on April 11, 2021. These matches followed the quarter finals that happened on April 10.

During the live broadcasts, viewers were able to earn card packs through YouTube Drops.

Week 1 Day 3 Hearthstone Grandmasters Asia-Pacific recap 

Yashina “Alutemu” Nozomi and Kenta “glory” Sato dominated the semi finals at the start of the day. While Alutemu obtained a score of 3-0 against Yu Hsin “GivePLZ” Pa, glory won 3-1 against Ching-Li “TIZS” Li. The games did not end there as Alutemu and glory duked it out in the finals.

While Alutemu played his Control Priest deck in the first round, his opponent did his best with Secret Rogue. In the late game, glory had a board consisting of a few minions, but he went into fatigue. Alutemu cleared most of the board using Blademaster Samuro, which prompted his opponent to tap out.

Alutemu continued his win streak in round two by playing Secret Rogue against Control Priest. With Secret Libram Paladin, Alutemu earned a score of 3-0 and became the weekly champion of Hearthstone Grandmasters.

Week 1 Day 3 Europe recap

It was Simone “Leta” Liguori versus Thijs “Thijs” Molendijk in the first set of games for Europe.

Although Leta achieved victory in the first couple of games using Post Rogue and Spell Mage, it was not over in the next one as Thijs put up a difficult battle. The latter player used Secret Libram Paladin against Miracle Priest and won the game with the help of Pen Flingers.

Leta brought back Miracle Priest in the forth game. He faced his opponent’s Tempo Rogue, but was not able to claim victory. With a reverse sweep against his opponent and going face with Jaraxxus for exact lethal in game five, Thijs achieved a score of 3-2 and earned a spot in the weekly Hearthstone Grandmasters finals.

The second set of semi final games were between Enzo “Warma” Floch and Torben “Viper” Wahl.

In the first game, Viper won with Spell Mage by going face with Fireball and a minion. However, Warma tied the score 1-1 in the next game using his own Spell Mage against Viper’s Weapon Rogue.

Viper brought back Weapon Rogue in the third game to fight and win against Warma’s Control Priest. Warma persisted and tied the score once again via board control against Face Hunter.

The final weekly Hearthstone Grandmasters game between the players was down to Warma’s Weapon Rogue and his opponent’s Face Hunter deck. After a close game, Viper headed into the finals to go up against Thijs.

The finals for Europe all came down to Thijs versus Viper. The players selected Control Warlock and Face Hunter for the first game respectively, with the Viper obtaining a score of 1-0 after going face with Quick Shot and a minion.

It was a Mage versus Mage mirror match for game two. Thijs won with Apexis Blast and pinging face with Fireblast. Although Thijs tied the score, Viper won the next game with Spell Mage against his opponent’s Control Warlock.

Thijs evened it up once again in game four. He won with Tempo Rogue against Secret Libram Paladin. The decider match came down to Thijs’ Control Warlock going up against Viper’s Secret Libram Paladin. In the late game, Viper went into fatigue, which soon led to Thijs’ victory.

Week 1 Day 3 Americas recap

As for the next region, Luna “lunaloveee” Eason duked it out against Shuntian “DreadEye” Luo.

During the first round, DreadEye wasn’t able to play minions and control the board in the early game. Meanwhile, lunaloveee played Post Rogue carefully against her opponent’s Secret Libram Paladin. After intense turns of board control from both players, DreadEye won by playing buffed up Taunt minions, going face and top-decking Libram of Judgment for exact lethal.

Game two involved lunaloveee’s Token Druid versus Weapon Rogue. On lunaloveee’s first turn, she used Coin, Innervate and Power of the Wild, which summoned four Gibberlings on her side of the board.

Although DreadEye got rid of a couple of minions, lunaloveee continued to develop her board. Despite the board clears by DreadEye, his opponent pushed consistent damage to the face and tied the score 1-1.

Game three was Rogue versus Rogue, but with different deck archetypes. DreadEye won with his Weapon Rogue, as his opponent wasn’t able to stop the damage to face using Post Rogue. DreadEye then won the fourth game with Inquisitor Demon Hunter against his opponent’s Spell Mage, which put him in the weekly Hearthstone Grandmasters finals.

As for the second set of semi final matches for the region, Luke “NoHandsGamer” Kooken and Jerome “Monsanto” Faucher clashed against each other.

Monsanto won the first round thanks to his Tempo Rogue against his opponent’s Post Rogue. However, NoHandsGamer evened out the score in round two with Secret Libram Paladin. NoHandsGamer won after Monsanto made a move that allowed his opponent to draw C’Thun, the Shattered.

The third game involved NoHandsGamer’s Post Rogue against Spell Mage. Although the latter player survived via Trick Totem into a clutch Cloak of Shadows, it was not enough for a victory.

NoHandsGamer continued his win streak into game four and won using Spell Mage against Monsanto’s Control Priest. With a score of 3-1, NoHandsGamer went into the finals and fought against DreadEye.

DreadEye secured the first win by controlling the board with his Mage deck against Rogue. Inquisitor Demon Hunter then went up against NoHandsGamer’s Spell Mage, with DreadEye acquiring another victory when his opponent’s Mask of C’Thun missed hitting a Poison minion on the board.

Despite the 2-0 score, NoHandsGamer did not give up in game three. He played his Mage deck again, but this time, it was against Secret Libram Paladin.

NoHandsGamer did a reverse sweep using Spell Mage, Control Priest and Post Rogue, which made him the Week 1 champion of Hearthstone Grandmasters Americas.

Triumph, TeamOne secure final cs_summit 8 closed qualifier spots

Avatar

Published

Triumph and TeamOne have claimed victory in the second cs_summit 8 open qualifier, besting Third Impact and Imperial, respectively, to earn the final spots in the closed stage which will run from May-14-18 and offer four spots in the North American Regional Major Ranking (RMR) event.

After easing through the early stages of the bracket, Alan “⁠Shakezullah⁠” Hardeman‘s side faced strong contention from SKDC in the first best-of-three round, managing to narrowly secure a victory in two maps to meet Imperial for a spot in the closed stage.

The Brazilian roster had fallen early on in the previous qualifier, and despite mustering a better run this time around, they were unable to prevail over Triumph, who opened the series strong with a Mirage win before bouncing back from losing their map pick by edging out a 16-13 win on Nuke to advance.

Cooper was the highest-rated player for Triumph against Imperial

TeamOne, who suffered a similar fate to their countrymen in their last qualifier bid, were able to claim redemption for themselves as they fought past Party Astronauts in a three-map series, and wasted little time in securing their closed qualifier spot by trouncing Third Impact 16-5 on Inferno and Nuke in the ensuing round.

Four spots at cs_summit 8 will be up for grabs through the closed qualifier, which will also mark the return of Extra Salt and paiN to North America, as well as GODSENT‘s first appearance in the region after playing in Europe for the first portion of the year.

The complete team list for the closed qualifier consists of:

What does Rook’s armor do in Rainbow Six Siege?

Avatar

Published

on

Rainbow Six Siege features a diverse cast of operators with different abilities and tools to help their team. Some are tedious and tough to master, while others provide excellent support and are easy to use. Rook, one of the original operators in Siege, is a perfect example of the latter. 

Rook’s armor plates provide an excellent boost to teammates that can make a difference in gunfights. But a lot of players aren’t familiar with what the plates actually do.

Rook can place a bag full of armor plates each round that he and his teammates can pick up. Players can only pick up one armor plate at a time and can grab a plate at any point during a round. 

The plates provide a 20-percent armor boost to the user without penalty, which is an incredible boost for a team. The plates also guarantee players will enter the down-but-not-out stage when damaged instead of instantly dying. But a headshot will still instantly kill a player even if they are wearing Rook’s armor. 

If a player is picked up by a teammate, they will lose the armor plate. But they can pick up another plate if there are plates available. Rook’s Armor Pack can be destroyed by enemies, so avoid waiting long to pick it up. Also, avoid shooting it, since friendly fire can also destroy the pack. 

Rook is an excellent choice for new players because he is available by default and his ability is easy to use. Just ping the armor pack to let your teammates know it is available, and they will have a slight advantage for the rest of the round.

TOTW 33 Predictions FIFA 21: Who’s Getting in?

TOTW 33 predictions for FIFA 21 are coming in as fans prepare for yet another Wednesday content drop in Ultimate Team.

Team of the Week cards are more or less irrelevant at this point in the year for actual gameplay. Yes, they’re still required in Squad Building Challenges here and there, but fans are more concerned with what those particular SBCs are and which Team of the Season cards they’re working into their teams. Especially considering TOTS cards replaced TOTW items in FUT Champions rewards at the start of the promotion.

Still, expect EA Sports to eventually release a repeatable TOTW upgrade SBC at some point in the rest of the FUT cycle. Perhaps they’ll even make it 84+ overall.

Here are some favorites for TOTW 33 in FIFA 21:

Expect there to be a decent amount of Premier League players in this TOTW considering the PL TOTS squad just left packs. The headliner of the group should more than likely be Robert Lewandowski. Although, if the Bundesliga TOTS squad is next, he will miss out considering he’ll be featured in that promotion and there cannot be two special versions of him in packs at the same time. Same goes for Sancho.

TOTW 33 will be announced and released May 12 at 1 p.m. ET.

5 Best AD Carries in League of Legends Patch 11.10

Avatar

League of Legends

The AD carry role in League of Legends Patch 11.10 is one of the pivotal roles in the game. Teams look to their AD carries as the focal point of damage and their main job is to take down the enemy’s front line so that the backline doesn’t stand a chance. In 11.10 there are a couple of changes in the bot lane but none that will drastically influence the landscape of the role.

Here are the five best AD carries in League of Legends Patch 11.10.

Jinx

Even though she received a nerf in 11.10 Jynx is still the best AD carry in the game by a long shot. She does overwhelming damage and has a ridiculous attack range thanks to her rockets.

Caitlyn

Caitlyn was a star in 11.9 and that’s going to continue in 11.10. She’s able to pin down enemies with her traps and deal big damage with her ultimate. With the right support pairing she’s a nightmare in the bot lane

Jhin

What Jhin lacks in movement speed he makes up for with huge attack damage. Players that pick up this champion must be prepared because your performance as Jhin will be entirely dependent on whether you’re able to hit skill shots. But if you can, no one will be able to stand up to you.

Kog’Maw

Kog’Maw got a few tweaks last patch that has helped him moving into 11.10. Thanks to the mana reduction on his E his harass is at an all-time high. Kog’Maw is now a bully in the bot lane and moving forward this will be the case in 11.10.

Samira

As one of the most polarizing champions in the game, Samira’s spot on the list could be argued. But many would agree that she deserves to be here. Samira players dominate matchups once they hit their power spikes and in 11.10 it’ll be more of the same.
