Heroes of the Storm is one of the most rapidly growing eSports title aside from HearthStone, CS:GO, and many others. With Blizzard recently taking up the role of hosting official “World Championship” series of tournaments for almost all of their current staple titles, Heroes of the Storm without a doubt is next on the list to get that extreme eSports treatment.
Earlier today, ESL recently announced that they would be partnering with Blizzard, and Twitch.TV to bring Heroes of the Storm Americas Championship from Las Vegas, Neveda on September 19th and the 20th. Various teams have been competing for the past few months to earn a spot at this upcoming tournament, with two more spots remaining until the roster is full.
Either teams will face off head to head to at this event, all aiming to take home the $100,000 prize pool, alongside an invitation to compete at the World Championship at Blizzcon later on this year.
