Heroes of the Storm eSports is returning to Katowice, Poland for the Heroes of the Storm HGC Western Clash, which will see some of the game’s biggest teams squaring off for a $100k prize pool in a three-day brawl.
Among the teams from North America, Latin America, Australia/New Zealand, and Europe are the undefeated Misfits, who have a stacked roster and arrive as the top seed. Fnatic and Dignitas will once again renew their rivalry and clash swords as Fnatic look to avenge last year’s Katowice loss, while Team 8 are looking to prove that their only loss was a fluke as the NA squad could possibly meet with Tempo Storm once more.
The HGC Western Clash kicks off on Friday, March 3rd at 3 am PST. The full event runs the entire weekend until Sunday, March 5th. Dates, times and prize pool information can be found on the HGC official site.
With so many huge HotS eSports names converging in Poland, this upcoming competition could be the fiercest in the HGC’s early season. There are a lot of storylines for fans to follow, and we are definitely excited to see how the next chapters are written!
