Discussion

No major surprises on the decks brought for this week's matches. Rogue and Warlock were the top 2 in all regions whereas Paladin saw no play this week either. Additionally, Europeans didn't bring any Warriors and Americas saw no Hunters. In APAC, Warrior, Hunter, and perhaps surprisingly Mage saw only one pick each.

Result-based Discussion

In APAC, Bankyugi brought the only Control Priest of the week and was rewarded for it as he managed to progress all the way to the final before getting reverse-swept by GivePLZ's Shadow Priest (which was far from the only Shadow Priest sweep of the weekend). In Europe the final was between the polar opposites of the Week 3 standings as Frenetic, who is having a rather impressive season (helped by the extra 5 points from his Season 1 victory), and the struggling Felkeine faced each other. The latter managed to win and secure the important extra point with which Felkeine climbed out of the immediate danger zone. In Americas the final was between the Week 2 winner Monsanto and Week 3 winner DreadEye. Even though DreadEye eventually lost to the Canadian, who has now won both Last Hero Standing weeks so far, both players can almost start thinking about Playoffs already with the strong lead they have over the other players.
