And we have ourselves a Summer Champion. Please join me in one
final round of applause for World Champion Pavel, from Russia! I’m Pavel, I’m from Russia, Ekaterinburg and I’ve been playing Hearthstone
since the end stage of 2013. Two Championships in a single year. You are staring at the king of Europe. What I like about HCT the most is that here come the best players from all around the world and I really like the atmosphere and the competitive spirit in the HCT events. Every time his back has
been against the wall and everything has been on the line. that’s when you’ve seen Pavel.
This is a guy that is prepared to play under pressure. You should do your line
up not against one guy who you expect to fight in
the first round because yes, of course you can beat him,
but that’s not a winning strategy. You don’t win tournament like that.
You need to build a line up to be good against all the
line ups you expect to see. There are some players that I respect that I think they’re good players but there’s no player better
than me at Hearthstone. Uhm… I don’t want to talk about that. The thing that winning the
World Championship twice in a row has always been my
biggest goal for the year. Hopefully things will go my way.
