We’re excited to announce the €10,000+ European Championship in Heavy Metal Machines, Hoplon’s competitive, free-to-play take on MOBA games - with a twist. This July, rally your team of four, grab yourself a unique car and take on the action-packed streets of Metal City.

About Heavy Metal Machines

Heavy Metal Machines says goodbye to the traditional MOBA set-up with lanes, towers and minions, instead prioritizing high-speed battles in the name of the Metal God. As you try to deliver your team’s bombs to the enemy base, you’ll be asked to chase down your opponents, predict their traps and positioning and most of all - never stand still. If that sounds like something for you, be sure to check out their official Steam page.

European Championship Format

The European Championship will be an open tournament on the PC only, allowing anyone to take a shot at the staggering prize pool of over €10,000. Even though the tournament will be run from Europe, players from other regions can, of course, take part, if the timetable suits them.

As such, the schedule will look like this:

  • July 1st-15th: Registration is open for the qualifiers
  • July 16: Swiss format qualifier on ESL Play
  • July 23: The top eight teams from the qualifier will play out a double elimination bracket, excluding grand finals and loser bracket finals
  • July 30: Loser bracket final and grand finals

The prize pool distribution will look as follows:

  • 1st: €4,000
  • 2nd/3rd: €1,500
  • 4th: €1,000
  • 5th/6th: €750
  • 7th/8th: €500

We’re looking forward to seeing you in the open qualifiers - may the Metal God be with you!
