British Heartstone pro GreenSheep makes ESL UK proud after qualifying for Winter Championship

British Hearthstone pro and former Team Dignitas player James "GreenSheep" Luo has qualified for the Hearthstone Championship Tour Winter Finals in the Bahamas.

GreenSheep played from the UK Fireside Gathering at the ESL UK Studio on the weekend, alongside other UK players including BoarControl, CelticGuard, HelloLeeroy and European No.4 GeorgeC.

GreenSheep was dropped from Dignitas last year as the org exited Hearthstone and Trackmania, but since then he has persisted, and has been playing in open cups to build up his HTC points.

He went 5-2 in the Swiss stage of the competition on the weekend, before beating Pakrovac, the No.1 seed and a second player to reach the European finals. Check out the brackets here.

GreenSheep eventually lost out to Pavel, the world champion, but has vowed to get revenge at the Winter Finals.

At the Winter Championship Finals later this year, GreenSheep will play with the other three people who qualified from the top four in Europe, and 12 others who will qualify in similar competitions around the world.

ESL UK is particularly proud of GreenSheep's achievement.

ESL UK spokesperson Jacob Harrison told Esports News UK: "We’re incredibly proud of what James achieved on the weekend. He is proof that sheer hard work and dedication can take you to the top tiers of your game.

"We’re excited to watch how he performs at the Winter Championship, where he’ll represent the United Kingdom on the global stage.

"James is not the only amazing player in the UK, and for the others the iron is hot – spring season of the Hearthstone Championship Tour is just around the corner, and James is an amazing act to follow."
