Heroes of the Storm’s 2016 tournaments start soon

Here’s the spring schedule

This year, we’ll have quite a few opportunities to watch top Heroes of the Storm players compete. Blizzard has some $4 million in prizes to give out during its Global Championship Circuit.

The competition is split up into three seasons (spring, summer, and fall), each of which will conclude with a Global Championship event. But first, teams from Australia/New Zealand, China, Europe, Korea, Latin America, North America, Southeast Asia, and Taiwan will have to face off in regional events to qualify.
