The Eastern Clash is here! The newly erected Paradise City resort in Incheon, Korea will host the top four Heroes of the Storm teams from both HGC China and HGC Korea in an epic competition. $100,000 in prize money will be up for grabs, along with the Eastern Clash trophy and international bragging rights.
In terms of frontrunners, Gen.G are looking stronger than ever—but veteran rivals Tempest and Ballistix are chomping at the bit. Chinese challengers CE and SPT are in the running as well and want nothing more than to upset these Korean superpowers.
