When Going All-In Goes Wrong In Hearthstone

Hearthstone lesson #43: don't bet the farm against a Mage with secrets in play.

Pro Hearthstone player Thijs Moldendijk lived out a moment many virtual cardsharks are familiar with when he dumped a series of power-ups onto a Tirion Fordring, going straight for the face of Pavel Beltukov. Thijs knew he had a secret in play, which could have been anything from an Ice Block to a Mirror Entity.

Pavel, though, was sitting on a Vaporise, a secret that destroys a minion when it attacks your hero.

Smiling the whole time, Pavel pulls out a nearby toy gun and pops off a few clicks as the commentators note the "shots fired." The ongoing SeatStory Cup VII is a more laid-back tournament, encouraging players and commentators to get creative. What results is moments like above, or this gag played on Sebastian "Forsen" Fors after a 4-1 loss in the quarterfinals.

SeatStory Cup VII is wrapping up its grand finals tonight, and you can watch all the Hearthstone action play out on TaKeTV's Twitch channel.


    It's not like he had much choice to be fair, he was dead next turn no matter what with that fireball Pavel had in his hand. Best Thijs could have gotten was a double kill if his secret was Eye for an Eye.
