Hearthstone player loses tournament because he plays Auto Chess on his mobile.
Linh ‘Seiko’ Nguyen has lost a professional Hearthstone game because he was simultaneously playing a qualifier for an Auto Chess tournament, where $ 1 million is at stake. Not so smart of him, because not only has he lost: people are also angry with him!
Special news about a Hearthstone tournament: German Linh ‘Seiko’ Nguyen has lost a Grandmaster match because he is playing a qualifying match for an Auto Chess tournament, where 1 million euros is at stake, during the game on his mobile. used to be. He made a huge missplay, which meant that he immediately had no chance. After he finished his turn, he happily continued playing on his mobile. It took him tens of seconds to realize his mistake, and then it wasn’t long before he gave up the game. Not so smart!
You can view the error below. If you don’t know much about Hearthstone and don’t understand exactly what the mistake is here, here’s a quick explanation: Seiko plays an OTK deck where you use the Holy Wrath card to throw 25 damage in the opponent’s face. You do this by making sure that the card Shirvallah, which costs 25 mana, is last in your deck.
Then you can play Holy Wrath, a card that does damage depending on the price of the card you take. If you take Shirvallah, you kill the opponent almost in one go. To make sure that Shirvallah is the last card in your deck, play the Baleful Banker card. This puts a copy of a card in your deck. Doing this when your deck is empty ensures that Shirvallah is the last card in your deck. And here is Seiko’s fault. He forgot about this last step, leaving Shirvallah out of his deck and the only way he could win the game disappeared.
It’s an amateur mistake, especially if you’re a professional player at a tournament. It is a mistake that you can only make when your thoughts are completely different.
The community was a bit angry with Seiko, as they find his lack of motivation irritating. All over the internet his bet is said to be disrespectful to the tournament and his opponent. One of the commenters on the video couldn’t hide his irritation either, no matter what he said himself.
Seiko has since made himself heard, although he has since deleted the Tweet in which he apologized. Of course, that doesn’t mean we can’t see what he had to say anymore:
If you were wondering what the hell @HS_Seiko was doing during his match when he misplayed horribly and also was looking somewhere else than his screen most of the time … He was playing another game on another screen.

Seiko probably learned his lesson. Now the only question remains: did he win his Auto Chess qualification or not?
