Hearthstone announced that 10 players are ready to make their mark in the first season of the Grandmasters 2021. These players were the top earners of all six Masters Tours last year. What’s going to happen is these players will battle in weekly tournaments. The goal is to make it to the playoffs for Season 1 and get a chance to be invited to the 2021 World Championship.

The 10 players are divided into four for the Americas, three for Asia-Pacific, and three for Europe. Today, we take a look at what these players bring to the competition.

Americas

For this region, one of the players who made it to the Grandmasters is Shuntian “DreadEye” Luo of the US. DreadEye caught the eye of fans with an 8–1 record along with a fourth-place finish in last October's Masters Tour Montreal. His instinctual playstyle is but one of the reasons why he got an invite to the Grandmaster.

Moving downward to the south is Joshua “Impact” Graham of Mexico. There’s no question that he made a huge “impact” on the game, especially with his ability to read the game and his opponent with great accuracy. He secured a spot in the Grandmasters for being the Top 16th in both the Masters Tour Arlington and Masters Tour Los Angeles.

Then, there’s Brazil’s Davi “Fled” Garcia who started playing Hearthstone in 2015 and started to turn heads in 2018. By 2019, he managed to transition to the Hearthstone Masters. Since then, he’s qualified in most Masters Tour.

Finally, we Martin “Tincho” Mazza of Argentina. He has long been familiar among many fans in South America. He has long wanted to join Grandmasters and it seems that he finally made it. Making this possible was his consistent placements in all of the six Masters Tours last year.

Europe

Moving to another part of the world, Spain’s David Neila “Frenetic” Quiñones secured a spot in a highly competitive region. He was the Masters Tour Montreal champion and earned a Top 16th finish during the Masters Tour Jönköping.

Since getting into the Playoffs of two HCT Europe Seasonal back in 2018, Simone “Leta” Liguori of Italy has been showing some truly solid performances. He earned a spot with a win at the Masters Tour Montreal.

The third is France's Engzo “Warma” Floch. Initially, he was relegated after Grandmasters 2020 Season 2. He managed to work his way back after winning the Masters Tour Jönköping and defending his promotion back into Grandmasters 2021 Season 1.

Asia-Pacific

Taiwan’s Yu Hsin “GivePLZ” Pa has been one of the region’s most consistent players. He got a spot in this season of Grandmasters by being the region‘s top earner of 2020.

Meanwhile, Wongyeong “Hi3” Cho of South Korea showed his competitive side during 2018 where he got into the Top 8 of the Tokyo Tour. Since then, he has been consistent in his performance, and his Top 8th finish at the Masters Tour Madrid earned him a spot in the Grandmasters.

Finally, there is Singapore’s Wesley “lambyseries” Seek. He is the first-ever Asia-Pacific Grandmasters to represent Singapore. He originally caught the attention of fans when he qualified for the 2019 Asia-Pacific playoffs. He secured a spot in the Grandmaster with a Top 4 finish during the Masters Tour Montreal 2020.

So who among these 10 are you rooting for?
