ESL To Host Multiple HOTS Tournaments
Blizzard's free to play MOBA moves to the top-tier eSports competition as part of the inaugural Spring season Global Championship Circuit. ESL has just confirmed that will host, in conjunction with Blizzard, at least two $100,000 Heroes of the Storm tournaments this year.
The first ESL HOTS Championship is going to be held at the ESL America Studios from February 27th to 28th, and the the second one, in Katowice, at the upcoming Intel Extreme Master Expo in Poland (March 5–6). Both tournaments will feature a $100,000 prize pool, and the top two teams at each of these ESL championships will directly qualify for a spot in the $500,000 Spring Global Championships taking place in Korea this April.
“The ESL Heroes of the Storm Championships in North America and Europe will award US$200,000 across just two months. We’re excited to be working together with Blizzard Entertainment on these tournaments, and look forward to the Spring Global Championship and all that is beyond,” said Sebastian Weishaar, Senior Vice President International Business at ESL. “2016 will be an exciting year for the community and we look forward to bringing the best of the competitive scene to audiences both online and at the venues themselves.”
