Imperium Pro Team Crowned as Philippines National Champions Post-Fall Championship
Here’s another reason for Filipino Heroes of the Storm fans to rejoice, as the Imperium Pro Team has knocked off the competition to become representatives for the Philippines after the Fall Championship Philippines National Finals which was held on September 10.
It wasn’t a walk in the park for the Imperium Pro Team though as had to go through some of the best Heroes of the Storm teams hailing from different qualifiers including the Online Qualifier, the Northern Qualifiers and the Southern Philippines Qualifiers.
On top of getting the chance to represent the country in the Southeast Asia Regionals on the 24th of September, the Imperium Pro Team also walked away with Php 60,000 in cash prize and Razer merchandise. If they score a win in Thailand, the team will then join the Heroes Global Circuit Fall Championship in BlizzCon which has a cash reward of US$ 1,000,000.
Kudos too to the 2nd to 4th placers during the tourney. Here’s the breakdown of the winners.
1st place – Imperium Pro Team
2nd place – Skyline Go
3rd place – Team Hangout
4th place – G7 HotS
So while their roster may have changed before the tournament proper, the team formerly known as Renovatio brought their A-Game and shined throughout the Fall Championship. It also helped that they now have in their arsenal famed Singaporean players Mirr and Zeys, who certainly elevated their game to a whole new level.
Their competitor, however, almost missed their chance at the grand finals when they went up against sister team – Team Hangout – in the losers round. Until the very last minute, the match between these two could have gone either way.
Spectators also had blast watching the tournament happen live at the venue and enjoying activities set up for them. With lots of Heroes of the Storm loot as prizes, attendees struck their best pose with character weapons, tested their knowledge in a pop quiz and of course showed off their skills in timed attacks.
Good luck, Imperium Pro Team! We hope to see you not only in Thailand but also during the Finals in BlizzCon!
