After several months of competition, the group stage of the Hearthstone Global Games is coming to an end. Several teams have already finished their competitions in the group stage. In the matches that did not have that huge of an impact in the final standings, Hungary managed to win their last match of the group stage. This made them tied with Greece for the second place in their group.
Despite that, both Hungary and Greece will be advancing to the next stage of the Hearthstone Global Games as three teams are moving on. The rest of the teams in each group will be eliminated from.
One of the most interesting matches of the final round of group stage was the one that Denmark played against France. Before the last round, Denmark was in a very bad spot. However, they still had chances for finishing in the top three. In order to achieve that, they had to defeat France 3-0.
The match against France started amazing for Denmark as they managed to win the opening two rounds. At that point, it looked like Denmark might pull off one of the greatest performance in Hearthstone, It could have happened, if French player Bestmarmotte didn’t start to wake up in the third round.
Even though Denmark put on a great performance in the first two rounds, their third round was completely different, as they struggled to make a right move. Bestmarmotte took control of the round very early in the game, and he maintained it until the very end. Even though Denmark lost the third round, nothing was yet lost for them. There were still some options available to find themselves in the next stage of the competition.
However, Danes seemed to have proclaimed victory in this match way to early as France came back to 2-2 very easily. In the fifth game, Danes pull off their big guns as Hoej stepped in for Denmark. Despite that, they were not able to match France in the Game Five as they reverse swept the Danes from that match. With that defeat, Denmark lost all hopes of advancing to the next stage of the Hearthstone Global Games.
In the last round of the competition, Canada faced Kazakhstan, which has been eliminated from the Hearthstone Global Games a long time ago. This was a very easy match for Canada as Kazakhstan failed to put on any significant resistance. The duel just confirmed that Canada is still one of the biggest favorites for the title. No matter if they do not have a perfect record in the group stage.
With the record of three wins and one defeat, Canada has secured number one in their group which will be very important for the next stage of the Hearthstone Global Games. Soon, two other matches will be played in this group, but the outcome of those matches will not change anything.
Brazil’s last match in the group stage will be against Switzerland, but that game will change nothing as Brazil has already secured the advancement to the next stage. The second game will be the one between Great Britain and Peru, and it will decide the team that will be finishing the competition in the fifth place.
