After three Seasons of Heroes Lounge ending in a Double Elimination Tournament for all five divisions, the organization decided to change the system. Thus, Heroes Lounge Season 4 is the first season which features two playoff tournaments. For Division 1 and Division 2 this is the Heroes Lounge Season 4 Championship and for Division 3, Division 4, and Division 5 it is the Heroes Lounge Season 4 Cup.
From the 25th of September on, after nine weeks of regular league play, the best teams of the lower divisions battled out in group stage which team is going to be qualified for the Heroes Lounge Season 4 Cup - Playoff tournament on the 7th and 8th of October.
During the last two days, we saw eight teams playing in total 14 Best-of-3 series, all of them casted live on our Twitch-channels. In the end, the Division 3 teams were the ones which came out on top, but Division 4 teams like Raging Xpress and Alt und Adipös put on a good show, taking a map off of the almost undefeated top team of Division 3 - Twisted Gaming - and even take down one of the favourites - Leipzig eSports - in the Loser bracket.
In the end, only one team can win and this time the crown goes to MILFits, who managed to go through the Winner Bracket and win the Grandfinal of the Heroes Lounge Cup without dropping a single map. The full ranking of the teams can be seen below. You can look up the bracket on the toornament page.
|4.||Alt und Adipös|
|5.-6.||Raging Xpress, Leipzig eSports|
|7.-8.||Zitronenpresse, Puppies In Shark Tanks|
|9.-12.||Abatheurs, Plan B, IX Kohorta, Elite A.I.|
