Soon the Heroes Lounge Cup weekend will begin. Saturday 13th of October at 13:00 CEST we'll be having the first matches in the lower bracket. Read all the details below.
After tonight's final matches, the final matchups are known. 11 teams made it into the knockout stage, with Group D having two teams drop out. Due to this Mentally 10, number two seed from group B who was originally scheduled to play the number 3 seed of group D now gets a free win in the bracket, facing off for the first time against the winner between Jormungandr and Killer Koalas. The double elimination bracket has the winners bracket spots filled by BrownHorseGaming, Sloth Sanctuary, Team TableFlip and For the Murlocs, all respectively the number 1 seed of their group. These teams can afford to lose one match, dropping them down to the lower bracket where they'll face off against the winners of the first two lower bracket matches.
At 13:00 CEST Body Block Crew and CoB Saltshakers will face each other in the first match of the knockout series. You can tune in for this game at twitch.tv/heroes_lounge. At the same time, Earthworm Defense Force and Treehouse gaming will be facing off on our second channel twitch.tv/heroes_lounge2. All matches during the cup will be cast by our amazing team of casters.
It's important to note that the times on the schedule are an indication, as the cup is running on a rolling schedule, meaning that if matches end earlier the next match will happen straight after. You can find the live standings on the cup page.
