The Grandmasters 2021 Season 2 has finished and that means Hearthstone is ready to welcome new champions. In addition, we also have three new players get a spot for the Hearthstone 2021 World Championship.

Today, let’s take a quick look at their journey to being champions.

The Americas

Let’s start in the Americas and meet Kyle “McBanterFace” Spigelman. He managed to enter the Group Stage by placing eighth after the initial matches. He lost against Jerome “Monsanto” Faucher in the first match of the Group Stage. He escaped elimination by sweeping both Mihai “languagehacker” Dragalin and Monsanto, in a rematch.

For the Playoffs, he was able to hold off Facundo “Nalguidan” Pruzzo and win 3–2. In the Final, he took on Muzahidul “Muzzy” Islam. After a series of back-and-forth, McBanterFace finally won.

The Asia–Pacific

For this region, the title went to Sato “glory” Kenta. If the name sounds familiar, he’s the 2020 World Champion. The win gives him a chance to get another World championship.

In this tournament, he managed to join the Group Stage by placing sixth in the initial matches. After that, he secured a spot in the Playoffs first sweeping Yuhsin “GivePLZ” Pa and then beating Yashina “Alutemu” Nozomi at 3–2.

His matches after that were pretty much the same, meaning it was a difficult road ahead. His semifinal match against Wataru “posesi” Ishibashi was hard-fought but managed to pull off a victory by the fifth game. This let him face Alan “AlanC86” Chiang in the Final.

He got first blood but then had to give the victory to AlanC86 in the second game. After that, he didn’t have any more problems and secured the next two wins.


In this region, the title went to French player Gabriel “Gaby” Jeanne. The best way to describe his path to victory is that it was mainly through domination. He ended the initial matches on the top spot. While he didn’t really sweep opponents, he won his two matches in the Group Stage to secure a spot for the Playoff.

He took down EU Champion David “Frenetic” Neila Quiñones at 3–1 during the semifinal. Then in the Final, it was the story when he beat Jaromír “Jarla” Vyskočil 3–1.
