Recap: National Championships 2023, Week 3

13th Sep 2023 Kasharn Rao

We've finally reached the end of the line. 44 countries. 44 champions.

Lexi was the undisputed queen of the hill this season, having soaked up a whopping clean 400 points on the leaderboard. Meanwhile, we'll be finally saying goodbye to the longstanding Briar, Warden of Thorns.

Despite Lexi's reign, many other heroes managed to score a win, including recently - Viserai, Rune Blood! With enough preparation, skill, and a little luck, you can go places you never thought possible.

Thank you to every single one of you who competed in the 2023 National Championships. You fought hard to earn a seat, and gave it your very best, through gauntlets of Classic Constructed, and twilit battlefields of Monarch Draft.

A special congratulations to all of our National Champions, we look forward to seeing you, as well as any other qualified players, at World Championship: Barcelona!
