As the Method HotS team made it to the Mid-Season Brawl, the first global stop in this year's HGC, it's time to cheer for our boys sporting the orange and black, and Twitch have made it not only easy to do so, but also rewarding! Today was the first day of the $250,000 prize pool tournament, featuring 12 teams from around the world, bringing the first HGC phase to a close by crowning a champion and establishing the pecking order for the second half of the year. And to make things even better, Method already got a win and a tie on day 1, adding 4 points under their belt, putting them on top of their group! With a 2-0 victory and a 1-1 tie, the boys have shown great promise and the potential to go all the way to the top.
Continuing their great plays tomorrow, Twitch has the perfect way for you to cheer them on and even get some Method and some general HotS rewards for yourself in the process! During the tournament you can use your Twitch bits in the BlizzHeroes channel to cheer for your favorite team, get special banners and sprays of your cheered team, get recognition for it in the chat, and the more everyone cheers, the bigger the in-game rewards will be! Here's a rundown of how it all works and the Method-specific rewards themselves:
- Be sure to link your Blizzard account to your Twitch account so you can claim your loot when items become available
- Cheer for your favorite teams on the BlizzHeroes channel during HGC events by clicking on the Nexus icon at the bottom of chat, selecting the team’s logo, adding the number of Bits and a custom message to cheer them on
- Track your individual and global progress on the HGC Cheer Event Page
- Once Cheering goals are reached, earned items will appear as “Claimable Soon” on the HGC Cheer Event Page. Once they are available, they will appear as ‘Claimable’. Clicking on Claimable items will apply them to your account.
You can get a Method banner and spray as well as loot boxes for HotS and Twitch emotes, with part of the money spent going directly to the team!
With day 1 behind them, the team has 4 more to go until they can qualify for the play-offs, which are scheduled to start on June 16th. The next match is on tomorrow at 3:30pm CET, so tune in and cheer for Method for some great reward and even greater team spirit!
