Hearthstone Grandmasters: Last Call Week 1
In game one of the finals, Bunnyhoppor opted for his Beast Hunter deck against SuperFake's XL Curse Warlock. The German pro-player took the first point with a King Crush to his opponent's face for lethal. The next point went to Bunnyhoppor again thanks to his Thief Rogue going up against Superfake’s played XL Ping Mage.
When it all came down to the match point, both players fought in a class mirror match. While Bunnyhoppor showcased the power of Big Spell Mage, Superfake brought XL Ping Mage into the fight. By the mid-game, Bunnyhoppor got out two Kalecgos minions, resulting in SuperFake using Sir Finley, Sea Guide to swap his own hand with the bottom of his deck.
SuperFake followed this up with Arcane Intellect for more card draw, getting a Magister Dawngrasp to freeze Bunnyhoppor's side of the board. However, Bunnyhoppor continued moving ahead, building up a board of dragons, using Rune of the Archmage to destroy one of SuperFake’s minions, pinging for the full clear and eventually going face for lethal.
Bunnyhoppor Talks Decks, Strategy and Roping
"It feels good,” Bunnyhoppor said in a post-match interview. “Didn’t expect to go that far, but it's pretty nice.”
The player explained how he wasn’t a fan of the Beast Hunter deck. “I feel really confident in the other three decks,” Bunnyhoppor continued. “Especially like Thief Rogue — it's one of my favorite decks.”
Bunnyhoppor then went over his deck lineup strategy. He said he considered bringing Shaman to Hearthstone Grandmasters: Last Call Week 1, but he knew that Fled and Pascoa from his group were likely to target it.
When asked about his experience in the group stage and how his match against Pascoa took approximately three hours, Bunnyhoppor acknowledged that he and Pascoa roped during those games. In Hearthstone, this term refers to letting the in-game rope burn before an opponent's turn, with the rope serving as a final countdown.
"I know I'm known as a roper, but I've tried to cut it down to like a reasonable amount," Bunnyhoppor said. "And I feel like in this match, there was like enough turns for — I just played them reasonably quick. I realized in like two seasons ago I was just playing like — trying to play at other people's speed, and I made too many mistakes."
Hearthstone Grandmasters Last Call Action Continues
