Details about the championship
The summer hit Europe with full force but the weather is not the only hot action HotS fans can catch up with these days. All the HotS teams in America have been playing at their absolute best in Open Tournaments to get one of the few spots to the Americas Championship. Eight teams will be lucky to get a spot in this championship and so far three teams have secured one: Tempo Storm, Cloud9 Maelstrom and COGnitive Gaming.
New details about the Americas Championship have been published a few days ago. Together with the ESL and Twitch the Americas Championship will take place in fabulous Las Vegas, Nevada, USA, on September 19 and 20. Fans can watch all the action online or live at the Las Vegas convention center (Hall N1, 3150 Paradise Rd, Las Vegas, NV 89109 with doors open each day at 9 a.m. PDT). Admission will be free so one should hurry up and turn up early as seating could be filled up pretty fast. For everyone who can't or doesn't want to go to Las Vegas Twitch will be the platform for broadcasting. The link for the stream will be twitch.tv/blizzheroes.
