HypeHorizen had a trifecta of members competing in the most recent Master’s Tour, Orgrimmar. GamerRvg, McBanterface and DreadEye all tested their decks for a complicated meta. Outnumbered and outgunned, HypeHorizen could have completely burned out, but we held out hope. DreadEye put up a great fight, but ended up dropping at 1-3. McBanterface finished Day One at 2-3. He continued to hold out hope for Day Two. He bravely fought and completed his journey at 4-5. GamerRvg also found himself in a struggle starting at 0-2.
It looked fairly grim for the HypeHorizen crew. GamerRvg took a breath and didn’t give up. He ends up going on a fire of a run. Not an easy task when 7 of his 9 total matches going the distance at 5 games a piece. After getting the 3 win-streak to close out Day One. He kept that streak going to 4 more games and closed out the series with a 7-2 record for 7 points towards Grand Masters! Big ups go out to GamerRvg for such a great performance. I caught up with GamerRvg and asked him about his weekend.
On preparation, he said “I prepped with McBanterface a lot beforehand. I knew I wanted Priest and Warrior for a long time, but didn’t decide on Miracle Priest and Token Druid until a couple days before the tournament. I was okay with this as I still knew those decks fairly well.”
He continued about his rough beginning, “Going into the tournament I already felt burnt out from all the practice I’ve done, but also motivated. Then I started down 0-1 and the next set down 0-2. At this point I was honestly discouraged, but I never gave up. That set I ended up reverse sweeping. Soon after that I was 2-2, and from there I ended 7-2.”
About never giving up, he remarked: “It truly is exhausting, but in the end its worth it.” And with that, another good performance will put him on the road to Grand Master territory. I also know that McBanterface and DreadEye will come back stronger than before. I have faith. I have Hype.
