China dominated Brazil 3-0 to win the second Hearthstone championship at BlizzCon on Saturday.

The final was the culmination of the Hearthstone Global Games competition that began in July. The Czech Republic won the title in 2017.

China completed an impressive run after finishing sixth in the preliminary Swiss round. The team did not lose a single series after that point, going 6-0 during HGG and finishing with an 18-6 game record.

China began its run to the championship with a 3-1 win over New Zealand in group play. The team then beat Hong Kong 3-2 to advance to the finals. China later eliminated Norway 3-0 to set up the showdown against Brazil.
