Polish player Jakub "Lothar" Szygulski and the German Philipp "SineX" Zoschke have overcome the hundreds of Hearthstone players trying to qualify for our $4,000 Hearthstone: Heroes of Warcraft tournament at the Intel Extreme Masters World Championship in Katowice. They will face our two invitees, Dan "Artosis" Stemkoski and Marcin "Gnimsh" Filipowicz, on March 16th.
SineX, who had before moving into Hearthstone in the closed beta played many other card games that prove to be useful experience in Blizzard's new strategy card game, is known to be one of Germany's best Hearthstone players and convinced in the European Qualifier.
The player that went on through the Polish qualifier, Lothar, has made himself a name in the World of Warcraft TCG long before Hearthstone and had back in the day kept himself at the top of Polish card games for a long time.
The two will face tough competition in form of the 2013 Blizzcon champion Artosis as well as popular team dogehouse player Gnimsh.
Tune in to see the four face off on ESL TV on March 16th.
