They will join James “GreenSheep” Luo and Ben “xl3en” Chapman, who have already qualified.

The finals take place at MCM London Comic Con this month, which runs from May 26th to 28th.
At the UK Hearthstone finals last spring, the ESL Hearthstone Twitch channel pulled in more than 26,000 viewers on Twitch during the UK final won by George “BoarControl” Webb.
A streaker also ran onto the stage, only to be bundled off by ESL UK’s trusty hero Matt Loftus (and a jedi). Yes, that actually happened.
