Heroes esports returns to DreamHack as they did in for the Summer Global Championship in 2016. DreamHack will host the first global competition to include teams from every region. These 12 teams will battle it out at DreamHack for a piece at the $250,000 prize pool.

Once the ten weeks of league play complete the top teams from China, Europe, Korea, and North America will automatically qualify, while each region will send another team from a separate playoff.
