Heroes of Newerth startled the world of eSports with it's early success, featuring tournaments by prominent organizations such as DreamHack, Digital Youth Awards, Electronic Sports League (ESL) and Gosugamers. It is now time for us to host our very first Heroes of Newerth tournament, hopefully one of many.
We will choose the top 8 teams out of the pool of registered teams which will be seeded directly into the main event. The rest of the registered teams will have to go through a qualification process (format of which will depend on the number of teams, details later) in order to determine 8 more teams that will participate in the main event.
The SK Gaming HoN Tournament #1 will then see 16 teams battle it out in a group stage (4 groups of 4) for a place in the playoffs.
SK Gaming will be offering a prizepool featuring $1000 in cash for the top three finishers. Bigfoot Networks will provide 5x Killer 2100 network cards for the winner and 5x Bigfoot Killer 2100 Shirts for the second and third place finishers. Steelseries will sponsor the tournament with 5x SK Gaming Edition QcK+ mousepads.
