All but two players for SeatStory Cup 4 confirmed

Winner of SSC3: Orange

The popular event will happen for the fourth time in Krefeld, Germany, this coming weekend: November 12th to 15th.

Alongside the Viagame Housecup, SeatStory Cup is one of the two big Hearthstone events which regularly happen in a very laid-back environment, compared to for example the DreamHack circuit, and thus are very well received among the community. The first three iterations all featured very noticeable players as eventual champions: Cong "StrifeCro" Shu, considered one of the best players in the world, Janne "Savjz" Mikkonen, spearhead of Team Liquid, and Jon "Orange" Westberg, one of the biggest newcomers of 2015.

Also, the final of SeatStory Cup 3 paired Orange up against a fellow Swede called Sebastian "Ostkaka" Engwall. If you've been sleeping under a rock - the latter became the second Hearthstone world champion just this very last Sunday and made his first big showing at SSC3. Alongside Orange, he will also return to the tournament which brought him a lot of success.

So far, 22 players have been confirmed for the event. This number is expected to eventually rise to 32 players, similar to the last iterations of the tournament. The prizepool will once again be $20,000.
