This weekend began the start of Heroes of the Storm Mid-Season Brawl(HGC) which features twelve Internationally top-ranked teams, each battling it out for the grand-prize of US$250,000.
This is the first global competition on this year’s HGC calender, and with some of the best and most unforgettable games being played it is proving to be one epic event. There were a LOT of comebacks and resets that happened, but we’re getting ahead of ourselves.
Here are just a few of the legendary highlights from these first two days:
Fnatic vs Deadly Kittens – Reset City
During both their games against Deadly Kittens, Fnatic’s assassin specialist Quackniix picked Genji into their team composition, and both games saw Genji getting ability resets from getting killing blows off with Swift Strike against the opposing heroes.
MVP Black vs Roll20 – Perfect Ley Line Seal
We all know how hard it is to get value out of Medivh’s second ultimate ability, but with such a great execution from MVP Black’s Glourung, and then the perfect follow up from the rest of the team MVP Black makes it all look easy.
Tempo Storm vs Soul Eaters – Best Twilight Ever
Soul Eaters’ support main, Thikari shows us all that all dreams are possible with an epic “wombo combo” play with Malfurion following up from a four-man void prism ultimate from teammate Zola, blinking right in to get away from the opposing team’s Illidan and popping his Twilight Dream ultimate, which leads to the entire opposing team being obliterated and Soul Eaters taking the game win.
Dignitas vs L5 – The Greatest Comeback
This game definitely left viewers speechless as Team Dignitas goes from being in a losing situation and completely turning the game around and winning. L5 continually were pressuring Dignitas with their double global hero team composition going from being at a 4 level lead mid-game to threatening to destroy the core at any minute end-game, but Dignitas kept a level head, picking off one hero at a time and ending in a massive turn-around.
