Disappointed as he did not make it out of group stages
July 31, 2017
Cydonia had a surprisingly bad showing as he failed to even make it out of group stages at the Hearthstone Grand Prix at DreamHack Atlanta.
ANALYSIS
Representing Team SoloMid, expectations are naturally higher for a player. Cydonia unfortunately couldn't make meet those expectations in Atlanta. He was done in by the grueling journey that was the Swiss group stage, and couldn't make it to the playoffs.

Outmatched and knocked out of Blizzcon
November 4, 2016
Cydonia was outplayed and outsmarted by Che0nsu as he lost 4-1 in the quarterfinals of the Hearthstone World Championship.
ANALYSIS
After a Game 1 win that saw Che0nsu be just two damage short of lethal four turns in a row, Cydonia looked to be in the driver's seat of the series. That facade didn't last long, however, as Che0nsu's Zoo Warlock deck was able to overcome the Flamewaker fireworks on Cydonia's Tempo Mage deck to even the series at 1-1. Then Cydonia decided to put his faith into his Secret Hunter deck, a choice he would soon regret. Cydonia used his Secret Hunter deck for the remaining three games and watched as Che0nsu defeated it three times in a row to close the series. Cydonia's play throughout the series was focused on making the most mana-efficient and strongest play for himself each turn, which is great, but was outmatched by Che0nsu's ability to predict and counter the moves made by Cydonia. Cydonia's Hearthstone season has come to an end, but he can look back at it fondly as he came out of nowhere to be in the final eight at Blizzcon.

Cydonia: Crowned Americas Spring Champion
June 28, 2016
Cydonia completed his dominant tournament run as champion, defeating Rosty 4-3 in the Finals of the Americas Spring Championship.
ANALYSIS
The finals matchup was as close as possible. Through the first six games, Cydonia and Rosty alternated wins with plenty of highlights going on. Rosty took Game 1 behind his massive Tunnel Troggs and then was able to grab Game 3 on his Freeze Mage, the deck that was seen as his biggest weakness. Cydonia had highlights of his own, the biggest coming in his Game 6 Zoo Warlock victory where he grabbed a Young Dragonhawk off of a Dark Peddler and then used two Power Overwhelmings on it to inflict 18 damage and kill Rosty on turn 5 to force Game 7. It was a battle of the Hunters in Game 7 as Cydonia was playing from behind throughout. After Rosty was just one point off of lethal, Cydnoia used some friendly RNG to turn the board around and find lethal himself, claiming the Americas Spring Championship crown.

Cydonia: Earns a hard fought victory to move to Semifinals
June 25, 2016
Cydonia edges out Deerjason 4-3 in a very competitive seven game series to advance to the Semifinals of the Americas Spring Championship.
ANALYSIS
The series had a rough start for Cydonia, as a Harrison Jones stole a Game 1 victory away from his Aggro Shaman. He bounced back well, however, winning the next game with his C'Thun Druid and then exploiting Deerjason's Aggro Shaman for two more victories. All Cydonia needed was a win on his Midrange Hunter to close the series. He lost his first game to Aggro Shaman to force Game 7, where Deerjason put his faith into his Yogg-Saron Druid deck. Unfortunately, Yogg was never played, but Cydonia didn't care as he rushed his way to a Game 7 win. Cydonia looks to be one of the favorites to win it all as he moves on to Day 2.

Cydonia: Advances to top eight of Americas Spring Championship
May 25, 2016
Cydonia completed the reverse sweep 3-2 on Joster to advance to the top eight of the Americas Spring Championship.
ANALYSIS
The series could not have started any better for Joster. He was able to get the perfect matchup for each of his first two decks, leading to a quick 2-0 series lead. Joster took Game 1 with his ZooLock deck against Cydonia's Miracle Rogue and then took Game 2 with his Tempo Warrior deck against Cydonia's Aggro Shaman. Now all Joster needed was one win on his Freeze Mage to close the series. One of the themes of the tournament as a whole has been the fact that Freeze Mage is not as strong as it used to be. This was very prevalent as Cydonia was able to defeat it with every deck of his for the reverse sweep, lining up his Miracle Rogue, Aggro Shaman and Reno Warlock decks. Cydnoia is out to keep his surprise run going in the championship.
