Gamers2’s Heroes of the Storm players are currently on their way to Jönköping, Sweden, where they will compete on Sunday in the Turtle Beach DreamHack All-Stars, an invitational tournament featuring four teams and a $10,000 prize pool. It is worth noting that the top two teams from this event will also receive invitations to attend DreamHack Open Valencia, where a further $15,000 will be on offer.
Liquid, Gamers2, Natus Vincere will be joined by a team coming from the BYOC (bring your own computer) qualifier in this double-elimination bracket tournament, which will use a best-of-three format. Our team will approach this competition looking to build on the second-place finish from Enter the Storm #2, the biggest European online tournament held to date.
Our team manager Radoslaw “Ayden” Kwiatkowski had this to say about this tournament:
“We were really happy with finishing second in Enter the Storm #2 while losing only to Team Liquid. Unfortunately, they are still beyond our reach yet, and it will take some time before we will be able to beat them. Currently, our form is quite unstable, but we firmly believe in our skills during offline games. We’re going to Sweden to take at least second place and we will do everything to accomplish that. This time we are going to face the new draft system with four bans in total and the selection of maps, the same system that awaits us during the upcoming Road to BlizzCon tournament. Unfortunately, we did not have too much time to carefully come up with new tactics, but we certainly used every available minute we had.”
