Masters Tour Dalaran proved to be the Chinese Masters Tour as Wang “ShuiMoo” Qihao defeated Lin “OmegaZero” Zheng, both from China, in a clean 3-0 sweep. ShuiMoo made short work of the final match, with the fourth clean sweep of Day 3, to claim $25,000 in prize money as the Masters Tour Dalaran champion.
Chinese players dominated the third Masters Tour of the year, overall, with three out of the top four positions earned by players from the region. ShuiMoo ultimately pulled ahead in quick and convincing fashion with his Rush Warrior, OTK Demon Hunter, and Miracle Rogue, so much so that there was little reason to doubt that he was the best player at Masters Tour Dalaran. All three decks used by ShuiMoo were piloted by other players as well, but in the end, he came out on top with his quick decision-thinking, with a new championship to show for it.
The 2021 Hearthstone Masters program is only halfway through the year. Three more Masters Tours and Season Two of Grandmasters remains, plus the culminating World Championship. At this rate, China is shaping up to be the region to beat at the end of the year, but there is still a great deal of Hearthstone left until the next member of the Hall of Champions is crowned.
The full Grandmasters 2021 Season Two details, including the full schedule and the players earning promotion following Masters Tour Dalaran, will be revealed in the coming weeks.
