Put up a rare poor performance
October 23, 2017
Amnesiac bowed out much earlier than he is used to in the Hearthstone Grand Prix at DreamHack Denver.
Normally a fixture in the final eight of any tournament he enters, Amnesiac was off of his game in Denver. Amnesiac failed to make it out of the swiss stages as he was upset on multiple occasions. Swiss is a very grueling format, but everybody expected Amnesiac to still be able to make it through. We can just chalk this up as a bad day for the teenage prodigy and expect him to make more noise in the future.
Fell a game short of making it to Summer Championship
September 18, 2017
Amnesiac was eliminated in the quarterfinals of the Hearthstone Americas Summer Playoffs.
The Young Savage rolled through the swiss bracket, going 6-1 to clinch top eight. All he needed was a single win to qualify for the Global Summer Championship and keep his dream of making the World Championship alive. He was matched up with YayTears, and was shocked as YayTears ended up sweeping in quick 3-0 fashion. This is another seasonal event where Amnesiac fell a single win short of advancing to the global event, a heartbreaking yet impressive feat to accomplish. Amnesiac's lineup was very standard as he brought Murloc Paladin, Pirate Warrior, Highlander Priest, and Jade Druid.
Could not back up his trash talk
August 26, 2017
Amnesiac and the United States lost to their rivals as they lost 4-3 to the Czech Republic in the semifinals of the Hearthstone Global Games.
This was the most hyped matchup of the final stage as USA and Czech Republic have developed a pretty intense rivalry throughout HGG. Amnesiac, whose age and criticism on other pros earned him the title of "Young Savage," has been the root of all of it. After being very critical of the Czech play earlier in the tournament, Amnesiac needed to back it up as the series fell on his shoulders in Game 7. Sure enough, StanCifka was the player to defeat Amnesiac and eliminate USA. Young Savage will continue to be savage, but he will also continue to compete at the highest level.
Young Savage and Team USA make the top four of the Hearthstone Global Games
July 26, 2017
Amnesiac has been sporadic but skilled as the United States clinched a Top 4 spot in the Hearthstone Global Games. Semifinals of HGG are at Gamescom in Germany in August.
After weeks of grinding through group play with all different countries at odd times of the day, HGG has its final four countries. USA is obviously the fan favorite, but they rightfully deserve its place in the final four with stellar play and teamwork from all four players. Although Amnesiac can be unpredictable at times, he is one of the greatest players in the game when he is focused and at his best. The ups and downs seem to be part of the makeup of the young pro, but it is worth it in the end.

Eliminated from BlizzCon after heartbreaking loss
November 5, 2016
Amnesiac couldn't hold on against Pavel in a 4-3 loss despite having being up 3-0 in the series. His run in the Hearthstone World Championships is now over.
Amnesiac seemed to be breezing his way to the semifinals at BlizzCon before it all came crashing down. He took the first game on the back of a yolo-Ragnaros shot that had a 33 percent chance to hit for lethal, before easily taking Games 2 and 3 with his Tempo Mage and Zoo Warlock, respectively. From that point on, Amnesiac was left floundering. He was down to his Malygos Druid and just couldn't squeeze out the win. Luck was surely on Pavel's side, as he used many RNG-filled plays to claw his way back into things and take the series 4-3.
Amnesiac: Punches his ticket to Blizzcon with win in Americas Winter Championship
March 13, 2016
Amnesiac won the Americas Winter Championship after beating Nostam 3-1 in the Finals.
Amnesiac certainly earned this one, recovering from a 3-0 loss to Nostam in the group stages to eventually come out on top in this tournament. In the group stages, Amnesiac went 2-1, with the final series being a close 3-2 matchup that secured his spot in the Semifinals. He easily won his Semifinal match against AlSkyHigh by a score of 3-1. In the finals, the 15-year-old prodigy was once again matched up with Nostam. Clearly wanting to exercise those demons from the group stages, Amnesiac took a fast 2-0 lead with his Druid and Rogue decks coming out on top against Nostam's Control Warrior deck. Nostam was able to get the win in Game Four with his Druid deck, which is highly favored against Amnesiac's Control Warrior deck. The loss did not deter Amnesiac, though, as he was able to take out Nostam's Combo Warlock deck with his Control Warrior to take the series 3-1. This tournament win not only made him $25,000 richer, but also secured his spot in the Hearthstone World Championship taking place this November at Blizzcon.
Amnesiac: Invited to Americas Winter Championship
March 9, 2016
Amnesiac, a recent addition to Team Archon, has been invited to the Americas Winter Championship, which takes place March 11-13th.
At 15 years of age, Amnesiac has had the "prodigy" label thrown his way a few times over the past six months. He had a not-so-impressive 1-2 record at the NA Qualifier.
