Heroes of the Storm announces Spring Global Championship

    
5

The past few years have seen MOBAs take over the competitive gaming landscape, with just a handful of games managing to attract millions of tournament viewers each year. Heroes of the Storm obviously wants to be one of those few, and it’s got an ambitious plan to make it happen in 2016 with a full year of seasonal competitive tournaments. The 2016 Global Championship Circuit will consist of three main tournaments (Spring, Summer, and Fall) leading up to the main world championship tournament, and Blizzard is stumping up over $4,000,000 US in prize money throughout the year.

The Spring Global Championship qualifiers are now are underway in China, South Korea, and South-East Asia, with qualifiers for North America, Europe, Latin America, Taiwan and Australia/New Zealand still to come over the next few months. The top teams from each region will then meet for the finals from April 1st to April 3rd in Seoul, South Korea, where they’ll compete for a slice of the $500,000 US prize pool.

BritoBruno gahhhh picking a group of heroes isn’t meta.  Heroes of the storm does not have a meta game.

Til there, please make the game a bit more balanced, because the Kael/Tyrande meta is a bit tiresome.

Sounds interesting. I wonder if same setup will apply to Overwatch next year.
