Blizzard has announced the details for their upcoming Americas Championship for Heroes of the Storm, where two teams will qualify for the opportunity to compete live at BlizzCon in the world championship.

 

The Americas Championship will take place in Las Vegas, Nevada on September 19 & 20. Entry to attend the event at the Las Vegas Convention Center will be free! Will you be joining Blizzard in Las Vegas for what is sure to be an exciting conclusion to the Americas portion of the #RoadToBlizzCon? Let us know!

 

Here is the official announcement:

 

Blizzard Icon Americas Championship Coming to Las Vegas, Nevada!

 

All summer long, droves of Heroes of the Storm teams have been competing in Open Tournaments with hopes of brawling their way to the Americas Championship. Tempo StormCloud9 Maelstrom, andCOGnitive Gaming have already proven their mettle during the June and July North America Opens, claiming three of the eight available seats at the Americas Championship, but they’re not out of the woods just yet.

 

Even in a competition of skill, strategy, and teamwork, it can never hurt to have lady luck on your side. All eight qualifying teams would be wise to seek her favor, because we’re partnering up with ESL and Twitch to bring you the 2015 Americas Championship LIVE from fabulous Las Vegas, Nevada on September 19-20 where you’re invited to watch the action unfold online or in person at the Las Vegas Convention Center!

 

AMERICAS CHAMPIONSHIP DETAILS & FORMAT

 

Reaching the Americas Championship is no easy feat, and each of the squads that qualify will have had to battle through scores—and sometimes hundreds—of competitive Heroes teams to get there during our North America Open Tournaments.

Eight teams in total will head to the Americas Championship from our Open events—including five from North America, one from Latin America, one from Southeast Asia, and one from Australia/New Zealand—where they’ll duke it out over a $100,000 USD prize pool and a chance to compete on the World Championship stage at BlizzCon later this year.

 

TOURNAMENT FORMAT

 

The Americas Championship is split into two stages. During the first stage, eight qualifying teams will be split into two groups of four to play in the double-elimination group stage. The top two performing teams from each group will then advance to stage two, where they’ll compete in the single-elimination semifinal bracket, and a victor will be crowned.

 

JOIN US IN LAS VEGAS!

 

Join us in-person at the Las Vegas Convention Center to cheer on some of the top Heroes of the Storm teams that the Americas, Australia, New Zealand, and Southeast Asia have to offer, as they fight for dominance on this next step toward the World Championship at BlizzCon later this year.

If you plan on heading to Las Vegas in September, don’t let the house gain the edge. Stack the odds in your favor by arriving before the doors open, because admission will be completely free and seating will likely fill up fast!

BLIZZCON 2015 WORLD CHAMPIONSHIP

 

Five global regions will send teams to BlizzCon for the 2015 World Championship: Europe, Taiwan, Korea, China, and America. Squads that want to make it to Southern California this fall will need to fight their way to the top of one of those five regions.

The big brawl culminates in the Heroes of the Storm World Championship, taking place at BlizzCon 2015. The top two teams from the Americas Championship will face off against the best of the best from Europe, China, Korea, and Taiwan for the title of top Heroes of the Storm team in the world, their share of an epic $500,000 prize pool—and, of course, BlizzCon glory.

 

Saddle up and head out to Las Vegas on September 19–20, or join us on Twitch to find out which teams will flop and which will ride the river to victory at the Americas Championship. We’ll have additional details about the tournament in the weeks to come, so make sure to keep an eye on the official Heroes of the Storm website for more news and announcements.

 

Until then, heroes, we’ll see you in Vegas!
