China’s top Hearthstone team disbands
BREAKING: TeamStory Champion Team eStar HS disbands.

Team Estar was considered one of China’s most successful Hearthstone teams. Throughout, China has been left behind in most of the international competitive scene, however, Estar has performed reasonably well since it was founded. Estar was founded in the early years of Hearthstone, where it has developed players to win two NEL titles in the 2014 Autumn and 2015 Spring Seasons as Yolo Miracle.
However soon after Yolo Miracle was bought by Chinese brand eStar, after they had won their third title, it was almost all downhill from there. Recently, they have perform well under standard, and have thus decided to release all their players. This is really tragic for the Hearthstone competitive scene, as the closure of one of the best Chinese Hearthstone teams will surely discourage further investment.
