Watch a Hearthstone pro-player experience his worst nightmare

In his Ro16 match in Kinguin Invitational, Adrian "Lifecoach" Koy faced a much scarier opponent than the player he was matched with.

In his first game in Kinguin Invitational, Team Nihilum's Lifecoach was slated to play Archon's Raphael "Hosty" Tsantili. A long Warrior vs Paladin match-up opened the series and the game dragged on without much excitement or action until Hosty drops a Sneed's Old Shredder. Naturally, Lifecoach is quick to react and eliminates the threat but from within the shredder come Lifecoach's worst nightmare - Nozdormu. The casters shout in excitement, tasting the sweetness of what's to come.

For those of you who aren't deep into Hearthstone streaming lore and don't get where's the fun in that, here's a little preface. Lifecoach is a player who likes to take his time every turn. So much, in fact, that he often waits for the rope sizzle before he makes his move, a characteristic of his that's earned him the nickname RopeCoach. Now, imagine Lifecoach in a situation where he only has 15 seconds each turn to make all his decision. Not surprisingly, misplays were inbound.

Pressured by the clock, Lifecoach battles Hosty's threats as effectively as he can, but he's not perfect in doing so to say the least. After three and a half minutes of out-of-his-comfort-zone Hearthstone, Lifecoach finally deliers a Truesilver Champion blow to the 1/4 Nozdormu, choosing to end the blitzkrieg madness over removing actual threats on the board.

Lifecoach would go on to win this particular game in the end but the victory dwarfed before one of the funniest moments in Hearthstone since the start of the year.
