Team Dignitas & mYinsanity to be invited

To honour the continued success of Team Dignitas and mYinsanity in 2016 we have decided to invite them directly to the event. This also means that they will not be in the way of up and coming teams who might be interested in participating in the open qualifiers.

Good luck and see you at gamescom!

We wish all of the participating teams best of luck and look forward to see the top eight compete on our stage at gamescom this August. Remember to follow ESL Heroes on Twitter and Facebook, as well as Heroes Esports and #HGC on Twitter for all updates.
