After a weekend of intense matches within the United in Stormwind expansion, Frederick “FuryHunter” Adam Møller became the Hearthstone Masters Tour Stormwind champion.
“It feels amazing to win. I practiced a lot for this tournament, and it felt great to finally get a top 16 and even better to actually go all the way and win it,” Furyhunter told Blizzard after the match. “My top 8 series were the most nerve-wracking experiences of my life. I had so many close games and series that my heart needs to rest now. I could just feel and hear my heart racing because of the tension.”
FuryHunter added that each victory, especially the reverse sweeps, felt amazing. During the semifinal, he thought he would be out of the tournament, he said, but he persisted and won. He said the tournament was a rollercoaster of emotions.
Victory through community
FuryHunter has been part of the Hearthstone scene for several years. In 2018, he took home the gold in DreamHack Summer 2018. A year after that, he claimed victory with his team at the Hearthstone Global Games.

Hearthstone Masters Tour Stormwind
Before facing badajimpom in the final, FuryHunter went up against players such as MaggoGx and VK.msbc.
Although FuryHunter lost the first two games against MaggoGx, he persisted and did a reverse sweep against his opponent. This secured him a score of 3-2 and a spot in the semifinal. When FuryHunter faced VK.msbc in the semifinal, he completed another reverse sweep, claiming victory over his opponent with a score of 3-2.
In the final against badajimpom, FuryHunter began by playing his OTK Demon Hunter deck against badajimpom’s Quest Warrior. The first point went to badajimpom but FuryHunter didn’t give up. Using OTK Demon Hunter, he duked it out against his opponent’s Libram Paladin and tied the score.
Another victory followed this one, with FuryHunter’s Aggro Elemental Shaman claiming victory over Libram Paladin. The final game between the two players consisted of FuryHunter’s Quest Warrior versus badajimpom’s own Aggro Elemental Shaman deck.
Although badajimpom had the burst damage to take FuryHunter down on his next turn, it wasn’t enough. FuryHunter went face with a buffed minion and Reaper’s Scythe for exact lethal.
