The Heroes of the Storm Global Competition will go through some changes for its second phase.
First of all, regional restrictions will be placed for those who want to participate in HGC. Players who compete in Major regions (EU, NA, KR or CN) must actually reside in their respective region for at least six months. Players who have competed in Major regions can move to Minor regions without any penalty.
Roster changes will be put under control, since there will be three specific periods when teams can: a) release players (6 - 13 November), b) acquire players (14 - 21 November) and c) approve of players (November 22 - 23).
As far as Open Division playoffs are concerned, they will change to an eight-team, three-day, double elimination tournament from a 16-team, two-day, single elimination tournament.
Lastly, there are changes to tiebreakers and broadcast times.
Starting with Week 1 of Phase 2, new changes will be applied to the HGC. We have highlighted some of the biggest changes below.
Players who have competed in or live in one of the Major regions (CN, EU, KR, or NA) must move to and live in the desired other Major region for 6 months before they can compete there. Players who have competed in or live in one of the Major regions (CN, EU, KR, or NA) may move to a Minor region (ANZ, LATAM, SEA, TW) without penalty and may begin playing immediately. Players who have not competed in and do not live in one of the Major regions (CN, EU, KR, or NA) may move to a Major region (CN, EU, KR, or NA) without penalty and may begin playing immediately. Roster changes
Have been split into three parts. Release - November 6-13 Acquisition - November 14-21 Approval - November 22-23 Tie Breaker Rules
