Zheng “iGXc” Qianhao is the Masters Tour Online: Madrid champion! In the final Masters Tour event of 2020, with 304 players from more than 40 countries, iGXc secured the championship following an intense 3-1 final against Asia-Pacific Grandmaster Yashima “Alutemu” Nozomi. He is the first Chinese player to win a Masters Tour, earning the Masters Tour Online: Madrid trophy, and $32,500 in champion prizing!
With the relegation of nine Grandmasters following Grandmasters 2020 Season 2, as well as the retirement of Americas Grandmaster Fei “ETC” Liang, Masters Tour Online: Madrid was the last chance for players aiming to earn enough to advance to Grandmasters. The top three players from Asia-Pacific and Europe, and top four from Americas, based on total winnings from all six Master Tours in 2020 have earned invites to join the top-tier of competitive Hearthstone. Two invitees, David “justsaiyan” Shan and Enzo “Warma” Flock, were themselves relegated following Grandmasters 2020 Season 2 and have earned their shot at redemption!
