Four teams have risen to the top and they all equally stand a chance to represent the country in an international landscape at the Southeast Asia Regional for Heroes of the Storm. Catch the battles this weekend online!
The top teams from the Philippines have answered the call of the Fall Championship. These four teams comprised of elite gamers have set themselves apart from the competition in the Qualifiers. From these four, only the best of the best will carry the nation’s pride and glory in the global stage. We’ll find out who it will be in the Philippines National Finals.
- Imperium Pro Team
- Skyline Go
- G7 HotS
- Team Hangout
From the Online Qualifier last August 13, Imperium Pro Team and Skyline Go beat out the competition for the first two tickets to the National Finals. As the defending Southeast Asia champion from both the Spring and the Summer Championships, expectations are high for Imperium Pro Team formerly known as Renovatio. Though for the Fall Championship, the team put their best foot forward with a brand new line up including top players from Singapore. Their fans and critics have to wait and see how much stronger they’ve grown but so far they’re on the right tract taking the top seed from the Online Qualifier. Skyline Go, on the other hand, is also a veteran of HGC. They secured high ranks from the previous two seasons. Like Imperium Pro Team, the team shook things up with their line up for Fall. If the Online Qualifier is any indication, Skyline Go is shaping up to be a top contender.
Southern Philippines Offline Qualifier
The long hours of traveling to the venue did nothing to hamper the victory of G7 HotS in the Offline Qualifier. Though they are a young team, G7 HotS is led by HGC veterans with killer moves on specialist heroes like Xul and Nazeebo. Beating out seasoned teams, they proved age is not a barrier when they took the top spot in the Offline Qualifier.
Northern Philippines Offline Qualifier
The last qualifier saw tensions rise from the teams hoping to secure the last slot in the National Finals including teams from the Online Qualifier. When the dust settled, it was Team Hangout who reached the pinnacle and earned tickets to the National Finals. A sister team of Skyline Go, they did not succeed during their first attempt at the Online Qualifier. However, under the leadership of former Skyline members, they redeemed themselves this time around.
The road to fame and glory is just heating up now that the Qualifiers are over. First up, these contenders must show they truly have what it takes to take the title of Team Philippines in the National Finals this September 10 set in Coreongate Internet Café, Makati City. Only then can they look forward to bigger challenges in the Southeast Asia Regional set in Thailand, bigger stage in the Heroes Global Circuit Fall Championship at BlizzCon and of course bigger prizes. Who will win it all? Tune in to Twitch to watch the action unfold live.
