Heroes of the Storm
Heroes of the Storm (originally titled Blizzard DOTA and later changed to Blizzard All-Stars) is a multiplayer online battle arena video game developed by Blizzard Entertainment.The game features heroes from Blizzard’s franchises including Warcraft, Diablo, StarCraft, The Lost Vikings, and Overwatch.
The Heroes of the Storm Global Championship
In the premier Heroes of the Storm competition, top teams battle for supremacy in regional professional leagues around the world. The best of the best will be tested in international Clashes and a Mid-Season Brawl as they fight their way to the finish at the HGC Finals.
Heroes of the Storm Global Circuit consists of Spring, Summer, and Fall Championships. In each of these three distinct competitions, teams battle it out through a series of tournaments to determine which 12 will represent their regions on the global stage.
For 2018, the HGC will require all 32 teams to identify team ownership that will be responsible for fielding a competitive roster, managing all team operations, and working with the HGC league office, among other functions. With team ownership focused on the administrative aspects of HGC membership, including marketing and league planning, players will be free to put all their attention on the gameplay elements that come with being professional competitors in the HGC.
