Top eSports rookies to look out for in 2016

Jung-Soo "Surrender" Kim


Although less popular here in the West, Surrender is well-known in South Korea as one of the best upcoming Hearthstone players. Surrender has played Hearthstone competitively since 2014, but it wasn't until his success last year that he got noticed. He took 1st and 2nd place in the OGN Hearthstone Masters, which is a prestigious Korean Hearthstone event. Surrender has also done well this year by finishing top 5 in the StarLadder i-League StarSeries Finals.

Although the clip above shows Surrender playing a Control Warrior deck, he is also know for his RenoLock deck.

For those not familiar, the deck lets you tap out to almost no health, then instantly gain full life again with Reno Jackson. However, Surrender alters the deck by throwing in some aggressive early game cards such as Knife Juggler and Flame Imp. 

To see his decks in action, head over to Surrender's Twitch channel.
