Over the weekend, Hearthstone fans were treated to a series of matches as part of the Grandmasters 2020 Season 2. The competition marked the end of the season, with players fighting it out to earn a spot in the 2020 Hearthstone World Championship.

The results are in and the three winners are:

  • Europe: Jaromir “Jarla” Vyskočil
  • Americas: Jerome “Monsanto” Faucher
  • Asia-Pacific: Pramet “Bankyugi” Putchakan

These three are joining the likes of Brian "bloodyface" Eason, Sato “glory” Kenta, Vladislav “SilverName” Sinotov, and Fan “iG.Syf” Yilun, at the 2020 World Championship, which is scheduled for December 12 to December 13.

Americas

Let’s start with Monsanto. Hailing from the Americas, his journey to the playoffs was one that was full of challenges. As part of Group B, Monsanto managed to get a 3-2 win versus Mihai “Lnguagehackr” Dragalin, and then later a 3-1 victory against Luke “NoHandsGamer” Kooken. This allowed Monsanto to secure a spot in the Semifinals.

In the Semifinals, Monsanto faced off against David “killinallday” Acosta. He managed to get a 2-0 win, but killinallday won the next two and forced a fifth game. Monsanto got the deciding win and faced Fei “ETC” Liang next. Monsanto again got first blood, but ETC won the next two games to take a 2-1 lead. This didn’t deter Monsanto, as he won the next two to secure the win.

Asia-Pacific

Over in this region, Bankyugi lost to Jung-Soo “Surrender” Kim in the Winners’ Match. He did manage to secure a second place in the group to take part in the Semifinals. Versus Kim “che0nsu” Cheon Su, Bankyugi dropped the first game, but won the next three to get that precious Finals appearance. It was back-and-forth against Wei-Lin “Tom60229” Chen, but Bankyugi eventually won the deciding fifth game to become the region’s champion.

Europe

Finally, in Europe Jarla managed to get a 3-0 win against Theo “Felkeine” Dumont after which Jarla defeated Zakarya “xBlyzes” Hail 3-2. This gave Jarla a top spot in the Group B, and earned him a spot in the Semifinals.

Jarla dominated Linh “Seiko” Nguyen and never gave him a chance to win at 3-0. The Finals were against Thijs “Thijs” Molendijk, who took the win for the first game. That was all that Thijs had to offer, as Jarla won the next three games and was declared the champion of the region.

Relegation

While having three new champions join the World Championship is indeed good news, there’s some bad news as well. Players Enzo “Warma” Flock, Hyun-Soo “Flurry” Cho, and David “justsaiyan” Shan all fell in the final relegation matches for their region. They still have a chance to stick around, and it will be exciting to see if they can make it.
