It's time for the next HomeStoryCup! Dennis 'TaKe' Gehlen will open the gates to Germany's Nerdvana from the 14th - 17th of November for the world elite of StarCraft II, who will be fighting for glory, honor and fun! The last "HomeKing" title went to Taeja, who defeated Snute in an amazing set of seven games.
To guarantee top matches and the best StarCraft II action imaginable again, we have set up three qualifiers for the HomeStoryCup VIII. Each qualifier is dedicated to its own area: One for Korea, one for the North American area and one for Europe. The winner of the NA, KR and EU-qualifier will get invites for the HomeStoryCup. And like in previous HomeStoryCup qualifiers, the winner of each qualifier will receive a paid trip, which will cover all travel expenses for the HomeStoryCup VIII in Krefeld, Germany.
Qualifier and stream schedule for the HomeStoryCup VIII:
EU Qualifier – October, 23th 5:00 PM CEST – Sign Up
KR Qualifier – October, 21st 11:00 AM CEST [KST 6:00 PM] – Sign Up
NA Qualifier – October, 22nd 11:30 PM CEST[EDT 5:30 PM] – Sign Up
Everyone is allowed to participate in one of the qualifiers, with the only requirement, that
your official place of residence needs to be in the specific region of the qualifier. The SignUps are already available.
IMPORTANT: Check-In for each qualifier will be one hour
before tournament start and will end 30 minutes before tournament start!
All qualifiers will be broadcasted by Dennis 'TaKe' Gehlen along with one or more of his usual suspects. Additionally, we will provide an English stream for each qualifier. The caster(s) for the English stream will be announced soon. So pull on your trunks and equip yourself with cold beer. We herald the summer season with the HomeStory Cup VIII.
Changed the EU Qualifier to make sure players could also attempt the IEM and DH qualifier!
And last but not least, we would like to thank our sponsors! Without them, the tournament wouldn't be possible!
