The Last Call Players Have Been Announced!
Quote from Blizzard
The points are in. It’s the moment you’ve been waiting for since the Summer Championship. Your Last Call qualifying players for the Hearthstone Championship Tour World Championship are:
From the Americas we have Muzahidul ‘Muzzy’ Islam. Muzzy competed in the HCT Spring Championship in Shanghai, but had his dreams dashed by Eugene ‘Neirea’ Shumilin. A game and simulation development student living in Pennsylvania, Muzzy is regarded by the pro Hearthstone circuit as one of the smartest and most helpful players around. Modest and focused, with his eyes on the prize, Muzzy’s recent wins at various DreamHacks cemented his place at the HCT World Championship.
China is represented by Lin ‘OmegaZero’ Zheng. The 21-year-old’s qualification via Last Call for the HCT World Championship marks the fourth time he will represent the country at a global Hearthstone championship. OmegaZero has always had an interest in card games, and had competed hard in local events in order to earn the points he needed. Apart from Hearthstone, he enjoys reading and taking walks.
Asia-Pacific has the indomitable Chen ‘tom60229’ Wei Lin. A life-long gamer, he got his start on card games in seventh grade. He also spent a lot of time on Warcraft III and World of Warcraft before moving into Hearthstone. As one of Taiwan’s top players, he has had multiple Championship showings and tournament wins, and describes himself as a master of card games. tom60229 narrowly missed out on qualifying for the HCT World Championship at the HCT Summer Championship—losing to Ryan ‘Purple’ Murphy-Root—but redemption (in the form of a spot at the World Championship) has come.
Europe is represented by Thomas ‘Sintolol’ Zimmer. Hailing from Bad Vilbel, Germany, this full-time Hearthstone player wanted to prove that he was the best point-earner in Europe—and has qualified for the HCT World Championship via Last Call! Sintolol is well known for playing a ton of ladder and open cups, and considers pizza margherita and a loaded salad as his favorite pick-me-up.
These four players round out the 16 we will see at the HCT World Championship in Amsterdam this January.
