The first Spellweaver Masters Championship Final was successfully held on 05.06.2016!
It was won by the rising Spellweaver star William Speers a.k.a Peacekeepr! He dominated all of the four rounds and took home $860 out of the
$2866 prize pool
The first Masters Championship Final matched together the best Spellweaver players in recent times, while some famous guests joined in for the thrill of the battle. There were 10 Golden Tickets won via the May Monthly Rating Race (ssslock, PewQ, wh1sp, Lirysse, Jotto, Lorenthiel, _KK_, IcePunk, JohnnyV, Cruel_Tek) and 3 Golden Tickets were acquired trough Qualifier tournaments (Peacekeepr, Belarion, Balduin). 3 Wildcards were given to famous and exciting card game players that also competed in Spellweaver PIONEERS (AKAWonder, Xixo, MrScottyMac).
Peacekeepr, one of the chief culprits for the state of the current meta, played with a lot of confidence and skill and deservedly won the 1st place. JohnyV and IcePunk were the pleasant surprises and impressed with their performances, while fans’ favorite Jotto was let down by his OTH deck. Special mention goes to ssslock who undoubtedly brought up the most interesting decks in the tournament. Hearthstone champion AKAWonder played really well but had a terrible stroke of bad luck, while Magic: the Gathering celebrity MrScottyMac was able to gain an honorable win at the end. Xixo did the same as well, after he had to forfeit the first two rounds because of bad scheduling.
