This weekend, teams from across Europe, the Middle East and Africa will have the opportunity to try and secure one of two remaining slots for the MSI MGA (Masters Gaming Arena) grands finals in Seattle, set to run from August the 28th to the 31st.
The story so far…
The Asian (including Korea, Taiwan, Hong Kong and Macau) and Chinese qualifiers came to a close last week, with the regions’ spots in the grand finals picked up by MVP Black and eStar Gaming respectively – and now it’s Europe’s turn.
Europe is currently the biggest region for Heroes of the Storm competition, and on Saturday the 27th and Sunday the 28th of June the MSI MGA’s most anticipated qualifier will pit Europe, the Middle East and Africa’s top teams against each other for those all-important grand final spots.
The European qualifiers kick off on Saturday, with registered teams to battle their way through a gruelling best of three single elimination bracket. The last four teams standing at the end of the day will then proceed to the finals on Sunday, where they will be join by the region’s four invited teams, who will be seeded directly into the playoffs.
The invited Heroes of the Storm teams are as follows:
- Team Liquid
- Natus Vincere
