Fifteen year old William ‘Amnesiac’ Barton has won Hearthstone Americas Winter Championship last weekend.
He is the youngest professional Hearthstone player in the world right now. The final was played against Nostam that Amnesiac had defeated earlier on Saturday. The player who manages to win the first three rounds will be crowned as a winner of the tournament. Amnesiac could equal winning two rounds. Nostam then won one round, but the fifteen-year-old overpowered his opponent to make it 3-1.
Well we did it. Huge thanks to everyone who supported me and helped me prepare for this weekend. It really does just feel incredible
