This is a special report from CtR HQ all about Blizzard esports!

 

Jules Scott joins Pat Krane for a look at Blizzard esports. Inside, they preview upcoming Heroes of the Storm and Hearthstone tournaments, and talk about some of the interesting matchups and other tidbits along the way.

 

Also, Jules and Pat review the first Overwatch tournament held this last weekend and how Cloud 9 has set them head and shoulders apart from their competition.

 

There are some reports out there about how professional players are leaving HotS for other, more established games. Jules gives you the scoop on the different aspects of why that might be happening.
