Mitsuhide is the DreamHack Winter champion
The Dutch player gets first major title of his career after signing with GamersOrigin earlier this month.
Those who follow the “underground” Hearthstone scene are familiar with Louis “Mitsuhide” Bremers’ name. The Dutchman, previously a member of Sector One, has been making strides in open cups and working towards his break-out since summer. In August, Mitsuhide came first in the WCA Europe qualifiers, beating players such as Ole “Naiman” Batyrbekov, Sebastian “Forsen” Fors and Vladislav “SilverName” Sinotov on the way and is guaranteed to compete for the six-figure prize pool of the Chinese major.
A true major championship trophy was still lacking on Mitsuhide’s shelf until yesterday when the newly signed GamersOrigin player took home the $8,000 of DreamHack Winter and the first points for HCT 2017.
Mitsuhide’s swiss seed placed him in the bottom part of the bracket where he dodged the majority of the big names, including four major LAN champions in Hyun-Jae “Dawn” Dang, Jan “SuperJJ” Janssen, Stanislav Cifka and Joe “Ness” Zazzaro-Francis. Tough matches were still ahead of the Dutchman, however, his run ending with five-game victory over Rasmus “Weghuz” Wallberg in the finals.
