In less than two weeks, the first Heroes of the Storm Europe Summer Regional will be held at the ESL UK studios in Leicester, England. Last Saturday, the best eight non-qualified teams from the open qualification went head to head for the remaining four spots at the event - let’s take a look at who’ll be part of the action in Leicester!
The final qualifier
Two big names in esports were the first to qualify for Leicester. mYinsanity stumbled during the open qualifiers but secured yet another chance for the big clash with Team Dignitas. Natus Vincere, who dropped out during group stage in Katowice, also earned themselves a spot by winning two games in a row.
Team Sandwich Monkey and Silenced Monkeys - who were both eliminated in the deciding matches of the winners’ bracket by mYinsanity and Natus Vincere - made a comeback, earning the final two spots with 2-0 victories over Virtus.pro and EURONICS Gaming respectively.
The full team lineup for the Summer Regional in Leicester is as follows:
