Summertime is the right time for eSports, as the ESL have announced they will host the Heroes of the Storm European Regional at Gamescom in August.
The tournament will be held at the ESL Main Stage between Wednesday, August 17th and Friday, August 19th. Teams will be facing off for $100k and a chance to play at the Fall Championship being held at BlizzCon 2016. Both Team Dignitas and Team mYinsanity have already secured their spots for the event due to prior performances over the year, with the other six slots to be contested in open qualifies on July 23rd, 27th and 30th. Teams interested in joining in the qualifies are directed to this site.
The ESL will also host an Overwatch Atlantic Showdown, featuring the best teams from America and Europe and a grand prize of $100k up for grabs. The Overwatch event will be shortly after the Heroes European Regional on August 20th and 21st.
Gamescom is an immense convention, and this is definitely one of the biggest international stages to hold a Heroes of the Storm tournament. ESL is going to pack the house with people ready for some HotS competition. This one promises to be big!
