HGC 2017 Begins This Friday

by Alebeard on

The Heroes Global Championship is back and better than ever! This year the HGC features a new league format where the eight best teams in each region will compete against each other in a ten week season in order to earn a spot in the Mid-Season Brawl. Along the way the there will also be an Eastern and a Western Brawl, which will pit the top three teams from North America, Europe, China, and Korea against representatives from Latin America, Australia/New Zealand, South East Asia, and Taiwan. For North America and Europe the action begins this weekend, while the teams from China and Korea will begin their season in the coming weeks. You can watch all of these best of five matches live on the Official Heroes of the Storm Twitch Channel, or you can catch up on all the action on the new and improved HGC website. The site has ...

Once an obscure hobby of stat driven baseball nerds, fantasy sports have become a global phenomenon. Whether it is managing a season long fantasy team, playing daily fantasy, or creating a March Madness bracket, it seems as if everyone is playing some type of fantasy sports. Being able to compete with friends and have a vested interest in the outcome gives fantasy sports an appeal that transcends beyond traditional sports fans. With the start of HGC right around the corner, a new website hopes to bring this same level of fan interaction to Heroes of the Storm. Much like traditional fantasy sports, Rosterpocalypse.com allows fans to test out their managerial skills and create their own Heroes Dream Team. Players can compete in public leagues in hopes of earning prizes like Heroes Bundles or Battlenet gift cards, and they can create and join private leagues to compete with friends (you can ...

Lead Hero Designer Kent-Erik Hagman, also known as Centaurik, made a forum post today addressing the community’s concern over the abundance of Warcraft Assassin releases recently. The post offers some interesting insights into the development process, as well as a few very vague hints of what may be coming in the future. While I understand the concerns from fans of the different franchises and non-assassin players, it is worth noting that the Meta is as diverse as it has ever been, and this is largely the result of the recently released Heroes. That being said, there are a lot of players who don’t play competitive and get their enjoyment from playing Heroes that resonate with them, so a broader range of releases does appeal to more players. You can find the full post below and if you would like to join the discussion on the official forums you can find the ...

The Public Test Realm is up and it brings with it a sneak peek at our newest Hero, Valeera Sanguinar. Some fans may remember her from the Warcraft comics, but for most she will be best known as the Rogue Hero in Hearthstone. At first glance, she seems to capture the feel of a Combat Rogue from World of Warcraft all the way down to the Combo Points. Her Trait, Vanish (D), grants her Stealth and a new set of Abilities. Her Q, W, E Abilities will all be familiar to Rogue players. Sinister Strike (Q) gives her a short dash and generates one Combo Point. Blade Flurry (W) deals AOE damage and awards one Combo Point per Hero hit. Eviscerate (E) is a classic finisher and consumes all Combo Points to deal increased damage. Interestingly both of her Heroics (R) are more focused on survival than increased damage. This ...

Not that there was much doubt, but Valeera has officially stepped out of the shadows and into the bright lights of the Nexus. The latest In Development video provides the first look at her abilities as well as her various skins and tints. I really like her Master Skin, but I don’t know that I would ever use it after seeing the amazing Demon Hunter Valeera skin. The video also provides a sneak peak at several new Lunar Festival skins as well as a mount. The video does leave me with one question. Does Vanish include a silence? When Valeera uses it to attack Jaina is puts the Silence icon over her head. Now this might be a Talent, it could be part of another Ability, or it could just be a mistake, but it doesn’t show up anywhere else in the Valeera footage. The good news is we won’t ...

Taaaaz’Dingo! A battle cry that strikes fear into enemies and teammates alike. Used properly, this mighty exclamation heralds a potential mega kill. Used improperly, it is the opening note in a Zul’jin funeral dirge. What determines which type of Taz’Dingo you get? Commitment and timing. Here is what the great Troll warrior Ale’jin had to say about how to Taz’Dingo. “Proper Taz’Dingo requires courage. To truly be one with Taz’Dingo you must embrace death. If you wish to live you must be willing to die. It is only thru conquering your fear of death that you can cause your enemies to fear theirs. To show fear in the face of Taz’Dingo is to invite death. Once Taz’Dingo has been declared you must stand your ground and bravely strike down your enemies. Running away after proclaiming Taz’Dingo will not only earn the scorn of your Troll ancestors, but it will also ...

Technically Team 1 hasn’t come out and officially announced that Valeera Sanguinar will be the next Hero added to the game, but all signs certainly seem to point to it. First, there was what appeared to be premature posting of Valeera information on the Blizzard Press Site last week. Then we had this ominous tweet earlier in the week: pic.twitter.com/KFHCdBWhEV — Heroes of the Storm (@BlizzHeroes) January 12, 2017 As if that wasn’t enough proof, earlier today we received this tweet from the official Heroes Twitter account: pic.twitter.com/WZFqzfl8Y7 — Heroes of the Storm (@BlizzHeroes) January 13, 2017 For many people, Valeera is best known as the face of the Rogue class in Hearthstone, but she is a recurring NPC in World of Warcraft and her origin story was revealed in the World of Warcraft comic. Although she is a blood elf, her story is closely connected to the Alliance. Like ...

The Heroes Global Championship series has been completely revamped for 2017 and one of the more interesting changes is the addition of the Open Division. For those not familiar, the Open Division is meant to provide the opportunity for non-HGC teams to compete regularly and potentially even win their way into the next phase of the HGC. Whether you are someone with dreams of playing professionally, or simply someone who enjoys Heroes eSports, the Open Division will be a great addition to the competitive scene. Today we learned more about how the Open Division will work, and when play will begin, thanks to a new post on the Heroes eSports page. The Open Division will consist of a series of seven weekend tournaments. Points will be awarded to the top 16 teams in each tournament and at the conclusion of the seven weekend tournaments the 16 teams will the most ...
