Caster wins OGN KR Masters Season 5
OGN Hearthstone Masters KR Season 5 has ended today and Caster managed to walk away with $17,620, 15 HCT points, and a shiny trophy.
The series, organized by OnGameNet, has been quite popular in the Korean community, and the western part of the world also watches them with great interest. Caster's way to victory was not an easy one as he had to face a lot of skilled opponents before his final face-off against khaizero in the finals.
The finals were Bo7 Conquest format and they were quite intense. The first game found khaizero on his Secret Paladin and Caster on a Hybrid Warlock featuring the Leeroy with Faceless Manipulator combo, as well as Jaraxxus for late game. Khaizero managed to get the first win. The second game tied up the score with Caster's Druid winning over khaizero's Hunter and the third game was won by Caster once again thanks to his Shaman. On game four, khaizero quickly took the win with his Hunter and tied the score to 2-2.
With the score being tied, khaizero took a precious win with his Druid over Caster's Hunter and took the lead, just one win away from the trophy. However, Caster managed to overturn the series as khaizero's Warlock, the remaining class to win with, did not manage to beat his opponent's Hunter or his Warlock. The last game was especially close between the two Warlocks, with Caster winning the battle.
Khaizero walked away with $5,290 for his second place finish as well as 10 HCT points, and in third and fourth place we had Ash and Pokerface who earned $2,600 each and 5 HCT points.
