HotS EU Introduction Event

1 post in this topic

Attention, AJSA members!
The European division of Heroes of the Storm is happy to announce its first official event. Although the division itself has already been a part of AJSA for quite some time, this is the first time we’re organizing an event on such scale. We’re treating this event as our introduction to the AJSA community and we’re happy to invite other AJSA members to have fun together in the amazing world of Heroes of the Storm.
What is HotS?
Before moving on to the details of the HotS EU Introduction Event, let us explain how HotS differs from other MOBA games. The most distinguishable feature of HotS is its gameplay’s focus on teamwork instead of skills of individual players. Blizzard has made an effort to make HotS reward cooperation between players, thus supporting the philosophy of the MOBA genre.
The purpose of the event
The main reason behind the HotS EU Introduction Event is to introduce the AJSA community to the amazing world of Heroes of the Storm and to recruit more players as member of the team. In the future we plan to create a competitive team representing us during e-sport tournaments. However, in order to achieve it, we require more players to join. Although our event is directed mainly towards the European members of AJSA, we encourage players from all over the world to join in as well. We believe that the spirit of HotS suits perfectly communities such as AJSA and that every player who enjoys co-op games will find his or her place in the Heroes of the Storm team.
What to expect?
As a part of the HotS EU Introduction Event we offer you a unique chance to meet member of the team and provide an introduction to the mechanics of HotS gameplay. Utilizing Custom Games and Team Speak we aim to host a series of friendly 4vs4 matches on the Haunted Mines map. We’ve chosen this particular setup because we believe that it matches the uniqueness of the Heroes of the Storm gameplay. In order to ensure that every participant has a chance to properly enjoy the game, we suggest teams of four, which divides into two pairs, each pair consisting of one HotS team member and one participant of the event. This way we aim to create an environment in which even inexperienced MOBA players will have a chance to learn the gameplay mechanics of HotS and the differences between HotS and other MOBA games.
In order to ensure that every participant has a chance to take part in the event, we will open a waiting room for the players waiting in the queue. The waiting room will be in a form of an interactive stream. Taure, the vice-leader of the European HotS division, will answer questions and provide an ongoing commentary of the matches, as well as the explanation of the current events in the game. Everyone who simply wants to learn about the mechanics of HotS or just wants to watch the gameplay is invited as well.
Where and when?
The matches of HotS EU Introduction Event will begin on the 12th of September 2015, at 8PM GMT sharp. Everyone who wants to take part in the matches is asked to come at least 10 minutes earlier to the Heroes of the Storm channel (subchannel of the EU Lobby), the official AJSA TeamSpeak. The streaming of the event will start at 7:30PM GMT. The additional 30 minutes will be spent on intruduction of the MOBA genre and the Heroes of the Storm gameplay basics.
As the European division of AJSA, we’re counting on your attendance and hope to create many similar events in the future, in order for everyone to have a great time playing with us.
