eSports! Blow-by-blow

DISCLAIMER: This is an entire recap of a Hearthstone match. It is rather tedious. 

tl;dr So much lucky RNG

Yesterday I drafted an Arena Priest, my 5th in the last 11 months. Yeah I never pick Priest in the Arena.

Anywho, I was down 0-2 and faced a Mage. Then came the most eSports! game I had in a really long time.
