Hearthstone Winter Group Stage week 3 recap
Week 3 of the ESL Benelux Hearthstone Championship has come to an end and before we head into week 4 we look back at all the action that happened.

In the first match of the evening ECV.ratje2000 took on Narra.

This match was a fast one, as Narra was able to grab the first win with his Renolock. After this both his Shaman and Rogue proved to also be too much to handle for ratje2000, resulting in a 3-0 win for Narra.

Next up were Sector One. lbdutchboy and RUZ3 Sjoesie. This game was the complete opposite of the first one, as this match went all the way. Two times lbdutchboy was able to grab the lead, but every time Sjoesie was able to equalize the score, bringing it into a game 5. After a really close match-up it was lbdutchboy that was able to grab the win with his Rogue after a sportsmanship move from Sjoesie.

 

 

The third game of the evening was mCon Made versus RUZ3_Near. It was Near who came out strong, grabbing a win with his Druid. After this though, it was all Made. First he brought the score to 1-1 with his Warrior and after that grabbed the lead with a Druid win. Near wanted to bring the game back, but a turn 5 Hunter lethal sealed the deal for Made: 3-1.

The last game of the day was ONE_Arneej facing off against ECV.d3n0r with another 5 game series. Arneej was able to grab the lead twice, first at 1-0 and the at 2-1, but both times d3n0r was able to take a win back. Here it was d3n0r who grabbed the win with his Druid, securing a hard fought win 3-2.
