Hearthstone Group Stage week 2 recap
Week 2 of the ESL Benelux Hearthstone Championship has come to an end and before we head into week 3 we look back at all the action that happened. It was an action packed evening with great plays and series.

In the first match of the evening LowLandLion’s maDe took on ECVisualize’s  ratje2000. Ratje started of strong, with a Zoolock win, but maDe came right back into the series with two wins in a row. Ratje was able to equalize the score once again to make it 2-2, but the Healadin from maDe proved too much for the Freeze Mage of Ratje, so maDe grabbed the win 3-2.

 Next up were Sector One’s Arneej and RUZ3’s hARMEN. Arneej came out strong, winning games back to back with his Warlock and Druid deck. hARMEN tried to make the comeback, grabbing a win with his own Zoolock, but it wasn’t enough as Arneej finished the game with his Shaman: 3-1.

 The third series was Emperor Narra against RUZ3 sjoesie. This match would be almost a copy of the game that was played before. Narra managed to go up 2-0, winning with his Zoolock and Freeze Mage, before sjoesie was able to answer back with a Shaman win of his own. Narra closed out the game though with his Warrior to grab his first win of the group stage! 

The last game of the day was Sector One lbdutchboy versus AT| firevlam90. This game would be the second 3-0 of the group stage, as lbdutchboy proved to be too strong for firevlam90. After a fast Zoolock win, lbdutchboy was able clutch out his Freeze Mage win with a Pyroblast. In the final game the Shaman proved too strong for the Zoolock of firevlam90. 

This gives us the standings after week 2:
