Hearthstone Game Ends In Almost Impossibly Improbable Sequence

Hearthstone Game Ends In Almost Impossibly Improbable Sequence

Hearthstone is an online card game with a significant amount of randomness. Sometimes, that random generation can lead to immense failure, but it can also lead to impossibly improbable victories.

At DreamHack Winter 2017 today, Esteban “AKAWonder” Serrano was staring down a very bad board state, with only a single card in his hand: Swashburglar, which gives you one random card from your opponent’s class when played.

Dropping Swashburglar, he gets Cabalist’s Tome, which gives a player three random Mage cards. And from that dice roll inside a dice roll, Serrano found the one card he needed to win.

One reddit user captured Serrano’s opponent Davidos’ face in the moment.

Maybe next time, the odds will be in Davidos’ favour. You can follow this weekend’s Hearthstone matches on DreamHack’s Twitch channel.


  • It is not a serious competitive game. You play it for fun. I feel sorry for anyone trying to be a pro Hearthstone player because things like that will happen all the time. Skill < RNG

    • It doesn’t happen all the time though. RNG is part of every CCG and it’s controllable, this article only exists because of how rare it is in competitive play.

  • This level of improbability would even be ‘crazy’ enough to make it into one of Trolden’s weekly Hearthstone Funny and Lucky Moments montages.
