Meet the Heroes Lounge and NGS crew of volunteers working on Division S.

27, Swiss/British. I am the founder of Heroes Lounge. I am also the owner of Barcraft Zurich, organising public viewings for esports events. Although professionally a data scientist, I have always been a huge fan of esports, particularly with Blizzard games, with my first love being for SC2. Building Heroes Lounge from the ground up has been an incredible experience, and I am proud to be part of such an awesome community.


Founder CEO

Hi there, I'm TinyOwl from the Netherlands. I am Chief Operations for Heroes Lounge. I make sure our organisation keeps running smoothly. Its a weird task that sometimes means pestering people about setting up meetings. Other times writing plans to go to new regions. And im sometimes an HR person to try and settle our differences. One of the things I like to do most is the mentor program for the free agents, to help new people get into the league and the community. I first played HotS during a LAN at home with some friends. That's how my first team Beginner AI was born, which joined Heroes Lounge in season two. During the day I am a business/IT advisor.


Vice Lounge Master

Phalop here, I am 23 years old with a masters degree in biomedical engineering and will be starting my PhD soon. Apart from being a scientist I am also a big fan of HOTS, other games and TV series. I am playing HOTS now well over a year and really fell in love with the game. When my interest was declining I found the HL which ignited the love for the game again. Currently besides competing, I also started casting and joined the moderator team as I always love to help people out and want to help the HL in any way possible as I love this community and everything HL stands for.


Chief Division S

My name is Petter ”Pittor” Ljung and I’m 25 years old from Sweden. I’ve been playing computer games for as long as I can remembered and I’ve fell in love with esports and HotS the last few years. I’ve been playing in Heroes Lounge since season 1 and the best part here is our awesome community.


Chief League Officer (CLO)

Hi, I'm borntoshine and I've been playing Hots for 3 years now. I was the support player for Missed My E in seasons 4 and 5 of NGS and the first NA season of Heroes Lounge; I'll be playing support for ALMOST LEGENDS in NGS season 6. I joined the NGS staff as a moderator (Division A) during season 5 and then stepped up onto the Board a short while later. I'm a support main (in case it wasn't obvious) and Brightwing is my favorite healer to play. I also love wine, Jane Austen, and all things Pokemon.


League Manager NA

Hiya, Astraeus here! I'm a 22 year old student from the Netherlands. Been a fan of e-sports since Starcraft II Wings of Liberty, now enjoy spending my free time on HotS, working "hard" to get to masters. My staff duties involve assisting you in our Heroes Lounge discord, adding the freshest memes to the discord bot and keeping a watchful eye over all the content we produce.


Chief Tech(CCO)

23 year old German, I love Blizzard games since the original Starcraft. I joined Heroes Lounge in Season 2 and picked up working on our website shortly afterwards. In real life, I study computer science.


Lead developer

I'm Kharis, I'm 29 and disappointingly British. You'll often find me casting on the Heroes Lounge channel, where I've been casting since the start of Season 6. On the admin side, I'm mostly responsible for scheduling our European casters to ensure the best coverage of matches, but I also have interests in Twitch analytics of our casts and in improving production quality, so if you have any thoughts on these areas, then get in touch!


Financial Manager

Hello there! I am Poppin, a 27 year old sloth from the North West of England. I enjoy moderating, creating content for Lounge and trolling my team by picking Dragonstrike. I have played HotS since beta and have competed in Heroes Lounge since Season 7.

Hi there! My name is Wedge but I prefer to go by my title of NA's top feeder. I come from the mythical land of Canada where we have maple syrup instead of tap water, our children are named after legendary hockey players and every citizen receives their own pet miniature moose as part of their retirement plan. Heroes has become my passion over the past 3 years and I still play like every hero has the same death timer as Murky.


Moderator NA

I'm just a regular guy who likes Heroes of the Storm.
