The best Heroes of the Storm teams from Australia and New Zealand are heading to Rio to do battle against their Latin America counterparts.
The Heroes of the Storm Global Circuit (HGC) returns to Latin America from May 13-14 for the HGC Intercontinental Clash, which pits two teams from HGC Australia and New Zealand's Premier Division against those from HGC Copa America.
At stake is the first HGC Intercontinental Clash championship and a spot in the upcoming HGC Mid-Season Brawl, which features a US$250,000 prize pool.
Aussie HGC veterans Mindfreak (formerly Nomia) have already qualified for Rio thanks to an undefeated streak that included a 2-0 victory over Downfall Gaming earlier this week.
The second ANZ spot is still hotly contested, as Crimson Gaming and Outlaws continue to duke it out to see who secures their place on the global stage.
Mindfreak and the winner of the second spot will take home the lion’s share of the HGC ANZ Premier Division’s AU$40,000 prize pool, and will face off on day one of the HGC Intercontinental Clash to determine who combats Latin America’s best team on day two.
Taking on English casting duties for the Intercontinental Clash are HGC ANZ Premier League regulars André “Skimmy” Allchin and Kori "Vandie" Bassi.
The HGC Intercontinental Clash will be broadcast on Blizzard’s Oceanic channel from 3am on May 13.
