Year in Review: Southeast Asia

This post is part two 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.

Following the conclusion of Phase One, Blizzard announced changes to region locks for professional players. This allowed players from minor regions to move without restriction and paved the way for two of the biggest shifts in Southeast Asia to occur.

This announcement was made as we learnt the remaining core team of Stronger, Enavir and nsj from the Philippines had been picked up by Psistorm Gaming and, in 2018, would be playing in the North American Open Division.
