After three weeks of HGC competition for both the European and North American regions, the stats snapshot has greater depth. Before diving into the statistics, there are several standout performances by top players worth highlighting.
Most impressive this week, Fan “Fan” Yang from Gale Force eSports has never died as Zeratul. Gale Force has won all three of their matches with Fan piloting the stealthy Dark Templar Prelate.
Dane “daneski” Coleman from Team Freedom has also not died on Tassadar across four games. Out of those four games, however, his team only won one. Similarly, in Europe, Joshua “Snitch” Bennett from Team Dignitas boasts a zero death record as Tassadar, but with a 2-1 game record.
Mike “Glaurung” Fisk from Team 8 has a 100% win rate on Dehaka across two games, and has not died on the hero in either. This can also be said about Rori “CauthonLuck” Bryant-Raible’s Gul’dan, Ben “cattlepillar” Bunk’s Ragnaros, and Phillipe “Nazmas” Laberge’s Tracer in North America.
In Europe, Fnatic’s Dob “Quackniix” Engström hasn’t had a single death in either of the two games he’s played Sylvanas, winning both. That performance is echoed by Pontus “Breez” Sjogren’s Johanna, James “Bakery” Baker’s Brightwing, Aleksandar “ethernal” Milanov’s E.T.C., and Anton “SirIceCream” Lotyrev’s Tassadar.
