In less than two weeks, eight of the best European Heroes of the Storm teams will fight for honor and their share of the US$100,000 prize pool as well as a spot at the US$500,000 Global Summer Championship at DreamHack Summer in Jönköping. While there is still one more European Regional ahead of us, securing a spot right away in Leicester will save the winner from another round of qualifiers.

Join us in Leicester for the Europe Summer Regional UK!

Heading into the groups are six teams we previously saw competing at the Spring Regional in Katowice as well as two new additions to the field. In Leicester, we might see some of the Spring Regional matchups being repeated. While Epsilon will get the chance to take on mYinsanity in Group A once more after their 1-2 defeat in Katowice, Group B could be considered the group of death. With Katowice winners Team Dignitas, European powerhouse Fnatic, Natus Vincere - who represented Europe at BlizzCon 2015 - as well as the up-and-coming Team Sandwich Monkey in one group, there will be no room for error for those who want to reach the playoffs.

Group A: Friday, April 22nd (not open to the public)

  • Team Liquid vs. Silenced Monkeys
  • Epsilon vs. mYinsanity
  • Winners’ match (winner qualifies for the playoffs)
  • Elimination match
  • Decider match (winner qualifies for the playoffs)

Group B: Saturday, April 23rd

  • Team Dignitas vs. Team Sandwich Monkey
  • Fnatic vs. Natus Vincere
  • Winners’ match (winner qualifies for the playoffs)
  • Elimination match
  • Decider match (winner qualifies for the playoffs)
     

The top two from each of the groups will clash once more in the playoffs on Sunday, fighting for the lion’s share of the US$100,000 prize pool as well as the safe slot for the Global Summer Championship.
