Heroes Global Championship Kicks Off Tomorrow

The Heroes of the Storm eSports season for 2017 is about to get underway with the Heroes Global Championship, an immense league of HotS players squaring off starting tomorrow.

The opening match of the new HGC is a big one, as Team Dignitas will be taking on Misfits on the EU side, while Team Naventic will take on Tempo Storm in the opening match of the NA bracket. Fnatic, Synergy and Team 8 will also be competing in the first weekend, which will feature four matches each day from Friday, January 20th through Sunday, January 22nd.

Broadcasts will begin on Twitch and Facebook starting at 9am PST. You can check out the league’s new website for more information, and can follow the complete schedule of HGC competition here.

Our Thoughts

The Heroes Global Championship is one of the biggest Heroes of the Storm competitions the game has to offer, and we really are eager to see how this game will carry an entire league’s worth of play. Here’s hoping that the HGC captures eSports and HotS fans alike!
