It's time for the Method family to expand once again, as we venture forth into the MOBA arena, with the most natural fit for us - Heroes of the Storm! As always with the Method brand, we aim for the very top, snatching up the best talent on the scene with 5 players that have 9 BlizzCon finals visits between them! The 2018 Heroes of the Storm Global Championships (HGC), starts today, with Method's first match being played Saturday versus Diamond Skin. HGC Finals veterans Athero and scHwimpi have been on the BlizzCon stage no less than three times each, and with the wealth of experience added from Arcaner, Cursen, Nic and team coach Elàzhul - BlizzCon 2018 is very real prospect for Method's very first HOTS team.
Heroes of the Storm has been growing in popularity recently, especially since the Heroes 2.0 update in March 2017 that enhanced the game in many ways. The HGC, Blizzard's official league, hosts top teams from North America, Europe, Korea, and China, in a multi-stage year long event that culminates with the Grand Finals at BlizzCon.
Here's a look at the team, who you can check out in their first match this Saturday, Jan 20 at 8:00 PM CET on the HGC stream.
