Developer Dream Reactor has announced that the first ever official Spellweaver Pioneers tournament was a glorious celebration of the game. 16 high ranked Hearthstone and Magic: the Gathering champions met each other in an epic Spellweaver clash!
Two players from the original lineup dropped (P4whnyhof, Vlps) in the last moment, but amazingly enough substitutions were found. On top of that there were no servers crashes, no technical issues, no bugs!
More than 10 Twitch.tv streams were live during the tournament, including the Noxious one and SpellweaverOfficial hosted by The Fuzz and Boltor. Speaking of hosts, all of them did a great job commenting on the games and building the entertaining and intense atmosphere.
Ekop won the tournament without losing even one game, but there were many other formidable performances. Xixo was stellar, while Dart_HS, C4mlann and DTwo played really well. StanCifka and pvddr, who were considered favorites before the start, didn’t manage to get to 3 wins, but were part of some of the most interesting moments. Special mention goes to Hotform, who was the only competitor brave enough to play his own original out of the meta decks.
