Congratulations to Frederick “Freddybabes” Bird for winning the December 2017 GWENT Challenger #2 tournament!
Last weekend, 8 of the best players of GWENT Masters were fighting for their share of the $100,000 prize pool in the beautiful Moszna castle in Poland, which has been transformed into a royal Nilfgaardian stronghold. The tournament’s winner also claimed the GWENT Challenger winner’s ring and the right to compete in the grand finale of GWENT Masters — the 2019 GWENT World Masters.
Freddybabes advanced to the final after managing to pull off a 3:1 win against J0rah, runner-up of GWENT Open #1, and an impressive 3:0 win against Lifecoach, GWENT Challenger #1 champion and one of the best card players in the world. His opponent in the final was a Wild Card player Kolemoen, who eliminated top Pro Ladder player Adzikov in the quarterfinal, and a runner-up of GWENT Open #2 TailBot in the semifinal.
Freddybabes’ expert passing game in a series of mirror matches allowed him to defeat Kolemoen 3:0 and take home the ring, as well as the title of the December 2017 GWENT Challenger winner. It was also his second triumph in a row, as he previously won the November 2017 GWENT Open #2!
