Further distances himself from his world champion form
September 5, 2017
Ostkaka failed to make an impact in another tournament as he couldn't advance through the group stages of the European Summer Championship.
ANALYSIS
It seems like a long time ago that Ostkaka was crowned world champion. With that major win far behind him, Ostkaka has struggled to gain the relevance he once had. This marks another early exit for him as he has yet to find his place since the marvelous 2015 run.
Shows signs of his World Champion form in second-place finish
July 5, 2017
Ostkaka got back to his world champion form as he stormed all the way to a runner up finish, falling to Mitsuhide 4-3 in the championship of SeatStory Cup VII. Ostkaka's lineup consisted of Shaman, Rogue, Druid and Warrior.
ANALYSIS
Ostkaka has flown under the radar since his World Championship victory over a year ago. The main reason he hasn't been in the limelight as much was because he just was not playing as well. He has been quoted as saying he has not felt as comfortable in recent meta games, but he still has as much skill as anybody else in the world. He proved that again in the loaded SeatStory Cup VII field as he rode his very slow and analytic play to the championship. Like vintage Ostkaka, he played slow decks and showed confidence in making those big picture macro plays that earned him the World Championship crown. Even if he isn't making as much noise as he used to, it is not due to a shortage of skill.
Ostkaka: Wins Hearthstone World Championship
November 7, 2015
Ostaka beat out 15 other participants to claim his title as the Hearthstone World Champion.
ANALYSIS
Ostaka started off the event strong, topping his group with two nearly flawless victories over both Hotform and LoveCX. He kept the momentum moving into the Quarterfinals where he had an impressive showing against Pipingho, dropping only to an aggressive Face Hunter deck. The Semifinals were a bit of a challenge for Ostaka, who was taken to a fifth game against ThijsNL. After winning the first two games in the series, Ostaka lost two games with his Mage deck, but came back with the same deck to close out the series and advance to the finals. Ostaka started the Grand Finals against Hotform with a convincing win using his Freeze Mage deck, and kept the momentum going, closing out the series 3-0.
