EDIT: Due to the Spring Championship ANZ Qualifier #01 taking place on January 30, this event has been moved to February 20 and the prize pool doubled to $500. Visit the Battlefy page for more information.
ANZHeroes is proud to announce a new monthly tournament called the Summer Showdown Series! Each month we will be running a two day event where teams battle it out for a prize pool of $250, as well as points that go towards a regional ranking list that will be launching in the near future.
This event is a double elimination best of three tournament (with a best of five Grand Final) that is scheduled to run for two days on January 30 and 31, 2016.
Splitting the event over two days allows the teams who make it to the final bracket a chance to rest and review their qualifying matches, while also giving viewers the chance to watch tournament without having to sacrifice an entire day.
By breaking it up over two days, it also allows every final game to be streamed! This means more exposure for the top talent in the Australian and New Zealand region, which should hopefully be reflected by viewership.
We understand that this is a new format for the ANZ region, but we are optimistic that it will be a fantastic event for both competitors and viewers alike.
Sign ups for this event are now open. To read the rules and to register your team for the tournament, please visit the ANZ Heroes Battlefy page.
