NA Region Players Only (Sorry to other regions, we just don't have the manpower to host those currently)

2v2 Custom Game; Higher seed team creates lobby unless your match is being casted, then the castor will create the game and invite both teams.

Best 2 of 3 games to win

Single Elimination

You will be required to check in to play.  Check in will open one day before the tournament and allow us to know who is coming.  See FAQ at the bottom for more details.

Select Matches and the Finals will be streamed and cast by TBKzord and Gizmozord on http://www.twitch.tv/lordsofthestorm.

Map - Cursed hollow; Middle lane only.  You may not go past the bushes on either side of the middle lane.  Hearthing back to base is allowed.  First team to down the other teams KEEP wins.  After a win you may either all quit the game for 20+ seconds (so that you don’t reconnect), or simply finish off the losing teams core.

Heroes - All are allowed, no mirror matches.

Bans - 2 per team, high seed (lower number) bans 1, then lower seed (higher number) bans 2, then high seed bans 1, switches every other game

Picks - Low seed picks first then, high, then low, then high, switches every other game (Example: Game one Team A vs Team B, pick order is A,B,A,B.  Second game, pick order is B,A,B,A).  This will be done in the custom match chat before the game starts.

The “M.U.L.E” talent is banned from play as it can give a significant advantage if only one team has it and unnecessarily prolongs gameplay.

Again, only utilize middle lane.  You also can not use minions (i.e. Azmodan, Abathur) to soak other lanes to try and get a leg up on XP.  Keep it clean and straight down the middle.

Second - Each member of your team will receive a Heroes of the Storm Funko-Pop mini Blind Box!


What is this "check-in" business - Check-in allows us to know which teams will be for sure participating in the tournament so we know if we have to make any adjustments.  Check-in is easy.  One day before the tournament starts check-in will open on the challonge page, and all you have to do, is your team captain comes to the challonge page, hits the "check-in" button, and that lets us know you'll be there.  This is mandatory to play so we can seed correctly.  Check-in will close about an hour before the tournament starts.

All 16 team slots are full, can I still play somehow? - Maybe!  With 16 teams signing up there's a decent chance a few may not check in.  If the roster is full you can still sign up and be placed on the backup list.  If you are on the backup list and you know you can make it, make sure to still check in, then on the day of the tournament, when check-in closes an hour before the tournament starts, we will see if any of the active teams haven't checked in, and if not, then we will start replacing them on a first come first served basis with the alternate teams who did check in. 

So and so cheated by going out of mid lane/taking a merc camp/farming other lanes - Don’t do this, just don’t, it’s no fun for anyone.  If it's an accident, point it out in /all, apologize, and move on.  If you happen to have a dispute against an opponent for any of this type of abuse, please submit the game replay to the tournament coordinator and it will be dealt with.

Those darn minions in the other lanes are pushing the towers and forts, giving my opponents xp - Yep, they’ll do that.  Unfortunately there’s very little we can do about this.  Normally this won’t happen until later in the game when the xp boost isn’t quite as noticeable, and the minions in each lane tend to balance eachother out for the teams, but just go in knowing that there may be a bit of good/bad rng to the games as well.  Hopefully Blizzard will remedy this by putting out a single lane map for this kind of play.

Man, Team X sounds really good, how did I get seeded against them - Please note that seeds/matches are not finalized until everyone has checked in on match day.  This allows us to compensate for teams that quit/do not check in/do not show up.

Final Results

Supreme Champion: Provoked Gaming
Worthy Adversary: Team surrender at 20
