Heroes of the Storm Tournament 2016 is going to be funded by the community. Unlike other tournaments, this one is completely crowdfunded by fans via a Kickstarter campaign.

“Heroes Rising: an eSports Arena Crowdfunded Event” will bring some of the top North American players to the West Coast. The goal of the campaign is only $5000 but with 17 days still to go, the tournament has gone past its goal. eSports Arena is helping out with fundings for casters, staffing for the event, venue fees, broadcasting production, and more.

We’re working with the community to make this event happen! eSports Arena is putting in a lot of man hours, as well as funding various things such as the casters, staffing for the event, venue fees, broadcasting production, and much more. Sponsors are also helping to fund a base prize pool of $10,000 which will have the opportunity to grow via your backer donations!

Meanwhile, sponsors have promised a base prize pool of $10,000, which is now 100% guaranteed thanks to the Kickstarter campaign meeting its goal of $5000.

The following teams are invited to the event:

  • Cloud9
  • TempoStorm
  • COGnitive Gaming
  • Murloc Geniuses
  • Panda Global

If the organizers manage to reach $10,000 stretch goal on Kickstarter, which it looks like they will, Dignitas and Na’Vi will attend as well.

Casting responsibilities are handed over to Gillyweed and Zoia, who will bring you all coverage of the event on January 9th-10th from eSports Arena in Santa Ana, CA. You can catch the action live on Twitch.

You can go ahead and show your support for Heroes of the Storm: Rising Tournament 2016.
