Earlier this year we witnessed two juggernauts of Heroes Of The Storm outperforming in their previous brackets leading up to Eastern Clash.
To recap the current series, teams competing in the HGC Eastern Clash will represent China, Korea, Southeast Asia, and Taiwan. The location of the event will be held in Shanghai, China at the MTR City Plaza, complete with a total prize pool worth US$100,000. Starting date will be March 17th.
And with that, let’s take a look at these two teams that shine above the rest so far:
In One Corner: Team Resurgence – A Force to be Reckoned With
Singapore’s Team Resurgence rise to the top during the Southeast Asia Regional Qualifier round was noticed by many viewers and fans. They even have a Made-In-Singapore puff piece of a video to showcase their talents and strife during their tournament run.
Resurgence’s full team roster for Eastern Clash tournament will include:
- Zappy– Carry/Flex Pick
- CwCwCw– Tank
- YewYengzxck– Melee Brawler
- Capricorn– Ranged Carry
- Julian- Support
- Babael- Team Manager
Team Strengths: They are well coordinated in-game and they have great mechanics during team-fights.
Team Weaknesses: They play it safe and like to stick to comfort picks. They should work on broadening their hero base and try out some interesting new combinations and strategies.
Here is a highlight of one of their best plays during their HGC match against DeadlyKittens.
And In This Corner: FaceCheck – Taiwan’s Qualifying Team
During the week of March 3, the Taiwan regional qualifier rounds saw four teams brawl for the title of ‘Best in Taiwan’ and the chance to compete in this year’s Eastern Clash. Here are the results:
FaceCheck’s overall strong hero picks during draft phase and team synergy in-game put them ahead right from the get start but ACE fought back hard with their double support drafts. The final grueling ‘Best of 7’ match round had FaceCheck pulling ahead with 4 wins to 1 loss against ACE, earning them the title of Taiwan Regional Champions.
Here is FaceCheck’s roster:
- GarnetDevil- Ranged DPS/ Flex Pick
- Austinger- Melee DPS
- KtFor- Tank
- Kim.tw- Support
- Fighting Small Lie- Ranged DPS/ Flex Pick
Team Strengths: FaceCheck has great positioning during in-game brawls and their general hero compositions are very synergistic with each other and the various maps.
Team Weaknesses: They are weak against snowball situations in-game, where the opponents are ahead in level and they are left trying to compete for the objectives. The team should find more opportunities to soak up experience in lanes to lessen that gap.
Here is a highlight of one of their best plays during the HGC taken from their match against ACE HotS.
And with that, we wish both teams the best of luck in the Eastern Clash. Watch the carnage unfold here.
