The grand finale in Hearthstone The European Grandmasters tournament ended dramatically when the French Zakarya “xBlyzes” Hai intentionally broke off the game against the Spaniard David “Frenetic” Neila.
With both players tied in two games in the best-of-three final, xBlyzes could not make a final defense against Frenetics’ attack with low health and no creatures in the game. Instead of collecting the match or letting Frenetic take care of you as it is in Hearthstone
xBlyzes is a 20 year old professional Hearthstone Player who won the second season of the European Grandmasters Tournament in 2020.
On Twitter, xBlyzes took his loss hard and defended his behavior as many considered it unsporting.
“Sry [sic] to be angry because I lost the most imp ortant game of my life, ”he said tweeted
xBlyzes had a tough time during this eight-week Grandmasters tournament. At the beginning of the competition, he was fined and two points for being late for a game and was accused of winning with his opponent Zhym. Profit trading involves agreeing to lose a game for money or subsequent wins and is against tournament rules.
In a Twitlonger, translated from the French by Kotaku, xBlyzes denies the charge said: “I’m not so foolish as to volunteer to wintrading and staying around.
“I’ve never cheated in my life and I would never cheat,” the Post continued.
Second place brings xBlyzes $ 2,000 in prize money and is eligible to enter the second season of the Grandmasters tournament from August. It is not yet known whether Blizzard will punish xBlyzes for its actions or whether the profit-trading allegations will lead to further investigation.
