Updated 8:45 p.m. EDT – Added Blizzard’s official release to the bottom of this article.
Congratulations are in order for the final four qualifiers heading into the Round of 16 for the World Championship set to take place ultimately at BlizzCon 2014.
Your Americas region qualifiers are Firebat, Strifecro, DTwo, and Tarei! For a full breakdown of the brackets and how these results were arrived at, check out Liquipedia’s bracket coverage here.
We here at BlizzPro would like to give a special shout-out to DTwo, as he represented Don’t Kick My Robot (DKMR), our partner here on the site whose articles you have probably been reading week in and week out. It’s clear that the teamwork and knowledge stemming from DKMR helped propel DTwo to his top finish and we look forward to cheering him on in the coming games!
We will continue to provide you with coverage from the Americas Qualifier as deck lists and videos of the matches become available. For now, you can check out HearthstoneVODs’ collection of games from this past weekend as they have been constantly uploading the games shortly after they complete.
