TakeTV to host a Hearthstone team league

Hearthstone Radoslav “Nydra” Kolev

Hours after Ek0p's triumph at the Hearthstone Invitational, TakeTV announced the launch of a Hearthstone team league starting April 30. A $7,000 prize pool will be given after a fortnight of competition.

Titled the "Hearthstone Gentlemen Cup", TakeTV's team league will invite six teams and extend seeds to two more qualifier winners, similar to how the individual invitational was handled.

The six invited teams - vVv, DogeHouse, MYM, MIA, eSuba and Planetkey Dynamics - are enough to get the initial hype rolling as they host some of the most consistent and well-known players in Europe. This includes TakeTV medalists Gnimsh and Ek0p (DH), IEM Katowice participants SineX and Lothar (Planetkey), Czech powerhouses Alesh and Mirrari (eSuba), and some of the highest ranked weekly tournament participants like Spo, Ostkaka, Kaldi (vVv) as well as Ignite, ThijsNL and BlazingGlory (MYM). Team MIA, on the other hand, will come as the tournament underdogs, featuring an all-Slovenian roster of up-and-coming players.
