In 2021 the European Heroes of the Storm scene witnessed the creating of the X-Cup Series, a new tournament series sponsored by a private Heroes of the Storm fan that brought us amazing matches between the best Heroes of the Storm players in Europe! With the X-Cup Fall Playoffs ending, we are happy to announce that a third season of the competition will start in January 2022 as the X-Cup Winter starts with its first qualifier!

 

All of the matches of the X-Cup Winter will of course be broadcasted in English by Khaldor on Twitch, but the competition will also be open to other streamers. Additionally all participating players are allowed to stream their own games to ensure that everyone can enjoy the X-Cup Winter matches according to their own preferences!
