  • Heroes Major League NA Playday 4 gave Tempo Storm and B A R R E L B O Y S chances to separate themselves from the rest of the pack. Both teams have won their first 4 games in the HML. Unfortunately, Cloud 9 Maelstrom had to forfeit Game 3 to 2ARC Iliad. One C9’s team members lost his internet connection, and the team did not have substitute registered to play. LunatiK gave a valiant effort, but ended up losing both games to EG. Game 2 was an especially heartbreaking loss, a half hour healfest on the Garden of Terror.

  • PyPHeroes Cup #1 was the first tournament run by Spanish site OGSeries, with a 100€ prize awaiting the first place team. Surprisingly, Team LDLC were only able to take one set before losing in the quarters to Incognite. Stigma defeated Los Gatos Samurái Bomberos Peladores del Averno en Bicicleta (what a mouthful, I hope that name is a placeholder), and Incognite was denied a spot on the podium when they lost to Trogloditas.
