Prize Pool Increase for the MSi BEAT IT Heroes of Newerth Tournament – DreamHack Winter 2011 is rapidly approaching and Heroes of Newerth is preparing to make a huge splash at the world’s largest LAN party. From November 24-27 the best teams from around the world will throw down in the MSi BEAT IT Heroes of Newerth tournament. This will mark three years that Heroes of Newerth has been featured at DreamHack, so to commemorate the occasion we are increasing the prize pool of the event from the original 200 000 SEK. Now, teams will compete for 300 000 SEK and hardware including 5 MSI GT780 Laptops, 5 MSI Motherboards, and 5 MSI Graphic cards. The winning team will also get the opportunity to design and name an Alternate Avatar to be included in the game!
Ten teams have been invited so far after a series of online qualifiers, including the Summer Champion Fnatic MSI, who has been invited to defend their DreamHack title. At the DHW event, one additional qualifier will be hosted in the BYOC area, where the top two teams will receive invitations to the playoffs and fight for the 300 000 SEK prize pool. The BYOC qualifier is open to all DHW attendees.
S2 Games staff will also be on hand the event. You can find them at the official Heroes of Newerth booth, located at Booth B03:02. They will be picking attendees from the crowd to participate in some competitive HoN, shoutcasting the MSi BEAT IT tournament, and handing out giveaways aplenty throughout the entire event. There, you can also expect to see the future of HoN and an unveiling of epic proportions.
