Another edition of the DreamHack Grand Prix is in the books, and another new champion has been crowned.
Frederik ” Furyhunter ” Møller of Denmark was successful in taking home the DreamHack trophy after a hard tournament. Despite being just 20 years-old the Danish player has attempted to make a big impression this year on Tour Stops, taking part in HCT Oslo. He saw off Hungary’s “PenHaDani” in the final 3-1 after both players had seen off more experienced competition in the semifinals.
Furyhunter took a 3-2 victory over James “Greensheep” Luo. Despite Furyhunter being a few months older, Greensheep was the veteran in this matchup having competed in both the 2014 and 2017 Hearthstone World Championships. PenHaDani took down Oldřich “Faeli” Mahdal, who fell just short of a top four place at the most recent HCT Playoffs.
The Swiss stage of the tournament saw the players battle over nine rounds, with only those with eight or nine wins guaranteed a place in the playoffs. Furyhunter finishing 8-1, with undefeated “Pool8” losing out to Faeli in the round of 16.
Furyhunter brought a pretty balanced lineup to the tournament, with nothing too out of the ordinary. Like 12 of his fellow top 16 players he brought Even Warlock, a deck which hearkens back to the glory days of Warlock and Handlock decks. His most unique deck was Odd Warrior, forgoing the more popular Quest Warrior archetype of favor of a deck with more utility.
To round out his lineup, Furyhunter had Token Druid and Odd Rogue. The mix of control, aggro, and board-focused decks meant he had a flexible lineup to combat any strategy. In Last Hero Standing that’s a viable strategy, as long as you have the skill to win out in the end.
