After discussing about the announcements made during this year’s convention, I decided to make another summary post, but this time regarding who won the BlizzCon 2017 Global Championships, for each game.
Needless to say, this is a HUGE SPOILER, so if you plan on actually watching the games and finding out for yourself, don’t read below!
BlizzCon 2017 Overwatch World Cup Winners
Probably the most watched BlizzCon 2017 World Cup, Overwatch has had 8 country teams that qualified for the event, namely United Kingdom, China, Sweden, France, United States of America, Australia, Canada, and South Korea.
Out of the 8 competing teams, only 4 have made it to the semi-finals, namely France, South Korea, Sweden, and Canada.
The Overwatch World Cup Final has been disputed between Canada and South Korea, and after an intense best of 7 game, South Korea won with 4-1.
BlizzCon 2017 WoW Arena World Championship Winners
After qualifying by winning their regional tournament for APAC and CN, or placing top 3 at the regional tournament for EU and NA, a total of 12 teams have made it to the BlizzCon 2017 WoW Arena World Championship.
Splyce, Rockets: Eclipse, Panda Global, ABC, Sneaky Snakes, Imagine PvP, Team Grmbl, Pen and Paper, Blank Esports, Method Triforce, and Method Synergy have competed against each other for a prize pool of 280.000$.
Out of the above mentioned 12, the 4 teams that made it to the semi-finals are Panda Global, Method Triforce, Method Synergy, and ABC, with the final being played between ABC and Panda Global.
In a best of 7 game, ABC has managed to win the BlizzCon 2017 WoW Arena World Championship with a whooping 4-0 against Panda Global.
BlizzCon 2017 Hearthstone Inn-vitational Winners
With an absolutely intense 2 days of matches, the final match ended up between the Grimestreet Grifters and Chillblade Crusaders (3v3).
The Grimestreet Grifters was composed of Hakjun Baek (Kranich), Pathra Cadness, and Andrey Yanyuk (Reynad), while the Chillblade Crusaders had David Caero (Dog), Dima Radu (Rdu), and Alex Ridley (NaviOOT).
In one of, if not the most intense Hearthstone Finals, with a best of 11, Kranich has single-handedly came back from a 1-4 lead by Dog, bringing the game to an amazing 6-5 victory for the Grimestreet Grifters.
Apart from the rollercoaster of emotions of getting back from 1-4, the game has also had some awesome plays with Gul’dan, Anduin, Malfurion, Valeera, and Thrall.
BlizzCon 2017 HotS Global Championship Winners
After both teams won the semi-final games with 3-0 scores, it was sure to be a great match between MVP Black and Fnatic. The two teams have played each other once again, after the 2016 Fall Championship semi-finals, where Fnatic won against MVP Black.
This year, though, MVP Black has taken their revenge, winning against Fnatic with 3-1, and securing their very first BlizzCon trophy!
With a much more aggressive gameplay, MVP Black were able to overturn Fnatic’s Stitches / Medivh setup that would’ve allowed them to eat a player with Stitches’ Gorge and then teleport through Medivh’s Portal.
BlizzCon 2017 StarCraft 2 World Championship Series Winner
After defeating Eo Yoon (soO) with 4-2 in the Global Finals, Lee Byung Ryul (Rogue) has won the Series, and is now the official world champion of 2017.
Having won two championship titles prior to BlizzCon 2017, Rogue has started the tournament as a favorite. Despite his initial modesty and somewhat lack of confidence in himself to win the round of 16 Series, he has proven he can do it to both himself and his fans, and stated that he’ll come next year as well.
Ever since July of this year, Rogue has been unstoppable, winning his first championship at the Intel Extreme Masters in Shanghai, followed by the Global StarCraft II League Super Tournment 2 in October.
Now, with the BlizzCon 2017 trophy under his belt as well, he can most certainly call himself the best current StarCraft 2 player in the world!
BlizzCon 2017 StarCraft: Remastered Ultimate Title Fight Winner
Last, but not least, StarCraft: Remastered has also had its Ultimate Title competition during BlizzCon 2017, between Lee Jae Dong (Jaedong) and Kim Taek Yong (Bisu).
Despite both being game veterans, they barely ever had any actual matches against each other, up until the Ultimate Title Fight, for a prize of 25.000$.
Unfortunately, Jaedong has not been able to perform as he wanted, given his health problems, but that didn’t stop him from giving his best with his aggressive gameplay, and even getting back 2-2 from a 0-2 lead by Bisu.
Since it was a best of 5 game, the fifth and last game was won by Bisu (3-2), after anticipating Jaedong’s aggressive tactic.
