Blizzard has just announced that it will be putting its weight behind the ever-growing MOBA Heroes of the Storm by announcing $1.2 million worth of cash and prizes to be put on the line globally with eight qualifying teams invited to the live finals.
With the finale being held at BlizzCon on November 6-7 in Anaheim, there will be $500,000 of cash given away at this event alone. The rest of the funding will be spread throughout regional championship qualifiers in the Americas, Europe, China, Korea, and Taiwan regions.
The first tournament will take place in China, with the other regions to be announced soon.
