YouTube Drops

The Masters Tour Silvermoon sees the return of the YouTube drops. Here, fans have the chance to earn a maximum of two Year of the Phoenix card packs. To get the drops, just watch on any of the YouTube channels mentioned for two hours and get one pack. Watch for another two hours to get the second pack. The time watched is cumulative which means fans don’t need to sit for four hours straight.

Previous Champions

The first Masters Tour was Ironforge which saw Huang “Xiaobai” Dehui dominate and sweep Michaël “Maverick” Looze 3–0. This was followed by Orgrimmar which had Gabriel “Gaby” Jeanne become the youngest Masters Tour champion. Unlike the previous Masters Tour, however, the Grand Final for Orgrimmar went to a deciding fifth game.

The third was Dalaran and the best way to describe it was that it became the Chinese Masters Tour. That’s because in the quarterfinals there were three Chinese players. So it wasn’t a surprise when the Grand Final saw two Chinese players go head-to-head. This was Wang “ShuiMoo” Qihao versus Lin “OmegaZero” Zheng. Despite expectations of a long match, ShuiMoo made short work of OmegaZero.

Once the Master Tour Silvermon is over, there’s still one thing that everyone can look forward to.
