Clinched his spot at the World Championship
July 10, 2017
Ant made it to the semifinals of the Hearthstone Spring Championship and clinched himself a spot in the Hearthstone World Championship.
ANALYSIS
Thanks to video packages made by Blizzard documenting Ant's life and what he has gone through to become a professional Hearthstone player, Ant quickly became the sweetheart of the tournament. He was also America's best chance of winning the tournament as Muzzy had an early exit. However, the fan favorite came to play in a major way as his ultra-aggressive lineup surprised a lot of players there. He was able to sneak his way into the top four with the unique lineup and clinch a spot at the World Championship. He lost to eventual champ Hoej 3-0 in the semifinals, but can be proud of his performance and they name he made for himself in the community.

Clinched a spot at the Spring Championship in Shanghai
May 29, 2017
Ant marked his comeback to the competitive scene as he made it to the semifinals of the Americas Spring Playoffs. With the semifinal finish, Ant clinched a spot in the global Spring Championship in Shanghai.
ANALYSIS
It has been a while since we have seen Ant in a noteworthy competition. Ant has been part of the Hearthstone scene for a while, but has been lost in the mix of all the emerging new pros. His last noteworthy finish was a top 8 at DreamHack Austin over a year ago. In this tournament, Ant brought the hyper-aggressive lineup to try to rush his way to a semifinal finish. Ant brought Aggro Druid, Murloc Paladin, Pirate Warrior and Secret Mage. A lot of other players brought the aggro decks, so Ant was forced to win a lot of coin-flip matchups to make it this far. We will see more of his fast paced play in Shanghai as he accomplished the ultimate goal of clinching himself a seat at the Spring Championship.
