BlizzCon Quarterfinals Set - Group Stage Review
There were some really big surprises in the group stage, as big names were left out of the event in the long run. However, some of the favorites like ThijsNL performed as expected, passing with ease through the stage.
- In Group A, we had Thijs “ThijsNL” Molendijk continuing to show he is well prepared and determined to wear this year's crown, winning comfortably against NoTomorrow and Kno. He is probably the most favored player to win the tournament and he has shown us why. The second advancing player was Kno, who managed to beat JAB two times, the first one with a close 3-2 and the second time 3-1, losing in between to ThijsNL 3-1. JAB fought hard to advance in the playoffs, but unfortunately, just like NoTomorrow, he did not manage to overcome the pressure and the high standards set by the other two players.
After all these battles, we now have only 1 contender from North America (Hotform), 2 for Europe (ThijsNL and Ostkaka), 2 for China (DieMeng and Zoro), and the underdog region of Asia-Pacific with the most contenders (Kranich, Pinpingho, and Kno).
In the Blizzcon quarterfinals, we are going to see the following battles:
ThijsNL will battle against Kranich
Ostkaka against Pinpingho
DieMeng against Kno
Zoro against Hotform
The matches will be played on 6th and 7th of November.
