At the beginning of the Hearthstone World Championship story, VKLiooon won the open tournament to write her own name to the Blizzcon bracket. After qualifications, she beat the best Hearthstone players in the world 1V1 to become the Hearthstone Global Champion. In the final match, she won against the bloody face, who was considered today’s best Hearthstone player. VKLiooon passed undefeated whole Blizzcon Hearthstone championship with her Evolve Shaman, Quest Druid, and Highlander Hunter decks.
After the victory of the Hearthstone World Championships, she mentioned her thoughts for her fans and supporters; “Being able to participate in the Hearthstone Global Finals was the biggest goal I have achieved in my Hearthstone career. This is the first time I have managed to get the attention of the world as a representative of China. I want to thank everyone for those who support and be with me from bottom to here.”
To get the attention on the issue of women-in-esports, Xiaomeng “VKLiooon” Li continued; “it was the best response I could give to those who doubted me only because I was a woman. This proves that women can also be strong professional players like men.”
VKLiooon is currently the best Hearthstone player in the world with the World Championship title. With her major win, VKLiooon also delivered a pretty nice message to all the women watching him. She left the BlizzCon stage winning the Hearthstone Global Championship trophy, the USD 200,000 cash prize and the respect of everyone who watched.
We wish luck to VKLiooon in her professional esports career and congratulate her new title of the Best Hearthstone Player in the World!
