Hearthstone Group Stage week 5 recap
Week 5 of the ESL Benelux Hearthstone Championship has come to an end and before we head into week 6 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 Arneej was battling ratje2000. Arneej didn't lose a series in the group stage, but ratje2000 needed a win to keep his final dreams alive. ratje2000 started out strong, grabbing the first two match-ups, but Arneej equalized the score to bring it to 2-2. The final match was a real nail biter, but in the end ratje2000 prevailed, dealing Arneej his first loss this season.

Next up were Lbdutchboy and sjoesie. sjoesie wanted to grab his first win of the competition, but it was Lbdutchboy who started off strong, grabbing a fast 2-0 lead. sjoesie tried his hardest to win the Warrior match-up afterwards, but it wasn't enough, as Lbdutchboy took the win 3-0.

The third series was maDe versus hARMEN. maDe was looking to keep his undefeated spree going and started the series off with a quick 2-0 advantage. But hARMEN answered right back with a game of his own. The fourth match-up was looking good for hARMEN as well, but a topdeck Consecration ruined his plans and delivered maDe the 3-1 victory. 

The last game of the day was Narra against firevlam90. firevlam90 started the series off with a win, but Narra equaled the score immediately after to 1-1. Afterwards Narra kept his momentum going, winning the following two games and grabbing the series!

This gives us the standings after week 5:
