Hearthstone Masters Tour Online: Asia-Pacific Schedule, Format and Results

The fourth Masters Tour of the season is about to start. The first three were all won by Frenchmen — so let's just hope we'll find a way to beat these baguette players.

The 320 invited players will have a lot to do to prepare for this Masters Tour, because Blizzard has just implemented a major patch in Hearthstone, including a dozen of card balance changes. Many cards were nerfed and a card from the new expansion, Scholomance Academy, was also added into the game. The preparation time is ridiculously short and it will certainly affect the usual leaders of the competition.

Your Champion is Leta!

Simone "Leta" Liguori is the first non-French to win a Masters Tour this year! The Italian player of Morning Stars team allows Europe to prove once again its superiority over other regions. He is also the first Italian to win a Masters Tour!

To secure his top 8, he made 8-1 in Swiss rounds. In order to win, he had to defeat on Grandmaster from each region. JustSaiyan for America, Bunnyhoppor for Europe, and finally Alutemu for APAC.

His victory gives him a considerable lead in the GM race for the 2021 Grandmasters Season1.
