is not taking the
that Blizzard was reducing support for Heroes of the Storm lying
down. Though they can't replace staff removed from the development team, they
outline what they can do to help restore some of the esports support that
Blizzard is ending. Here's word:
Heroes Lounge Division S will be a
high-level competition where the top teams from Europe and NA can compete in
their own region. Teams will be competing in a round robin format, will compete
for crowdfunded prizes, have a chance to drop out of the division via crucibles
with new teams being able to fight their way in via qualifiers and most games
being cast by no one less than Khaldor himself. Most importantly, this is all
going to happen now.
Our timeline for this is planned as follows:
- Signups for the qualifiers open the start of
- Qualifiers will be played on the 2nd and 3rd of
- League play will start at the beginning of March
- Updates on the progress of Division S will be
shared with you in regular updates. Even though we’re in contact with other
organisations we won’t be able to make this happen without your support.
We’re striving to support Heroes’ most skilled and passionate teams and give
them a fair prize to strive and improve for. You can help fund this prize
pool via Matcherino.
If you’re interested in supporting the community and/or division S in a
non-financial way please contact one managers or board members in our discord
server. We’re looking for volunteers to make division S the best it can be.
We are open to collaborations on this project and would love to hear any ideas
