Heralded Hearthstone Hero Bested by Beginner
Blizzard's Hearthstone is definitely not for the faint of heart -- just when you think you have it in the bag, you can lose as player Jason "Amaz" Chan now knows.
It seems that Hearthstone can be a game of pure unadulterated luck with a little hint of skill added in when looking at the slaughter that the legendary player Jason "Amaz" Chan took when trying to rank up on a different server.
Kotaku reports that Amaz not only is one of the most popular Hearthstone streamers out there, but that his infamy is warranted with multiple tournament wins and his very own Hearthstone team. However, that didn't stop a lowly Angry Chicken ranked player from beating him when Amaz ventured onto the Asian servers while the NA servers were down.
The one good thing about the whole battle is that, despite getting absolutely slaughtered by a guy whose cards didn't have half the standing of Amaz's own, Amaz took it all in stride. "I'm getting wrecked! I'm getting wrecked," Amaz exclaimed as the random Asian server opponent kicked his butt while Amaz was using a deck that he was sure would win.
I know I've had many a game where the other person completely turned the battle around on me, but this is a pretty extreme case. If you want to see if you can beat the Amazes out there, you can check out Hearthstone now for PC and some mobile devices.
