This post is part three of our four part series that takes a look at how competitive Heroes of the Storm in each region has fared in 2017. Part one on Latin America can be found here and part two on Southeast Asia can be found here.
2017 is a year that will be remembered fondly by many ANZ Heroes of the Storm fans. As a previously unknown region, Nomia made history for ANZ during the first Western Clash. In a series that shocked all, the former kings found themselves in position to take a series off Europe’s top team at the time. After winning the first game against Misfits (now Team Liquid) and nearly taking the second, casters and fans alike stood in awe, finally seeing the potential lying dormant in this region for so long. After then taking a map off Team 8, fans now had very high expectations of the team for the upcoming Mid-Season Brawl. Although Nomia continued to impress at the brawl, making it to the play-offs, they ultimately fell to L5 in the losers bracket.
Welcome to the first Weekly Wrap-up for 2018. We hope you’re well rested after the holiday break, because things are about to heat up very quickly in ANZ!
