When we talk about European Heroes of the Storm, established organisations like Liquid and Na’Vi tend to dominate the conversation. But what about Bob? The team that seems uncertain about their own name played dominantly over the weekend, winning their first major and becoming the talk of the Heroes community.
Team Liquid was the easy favorite to win Enter the Storm after winning the previous two events. Many expected the Spanish side to dominate once again, the same way it has in almost every European event it has taken part in.
That all changed in the second round of Enter the Storm 3, as Bob? shocked everyone and took out the squad many believe to be the best in Europe—and looked pretty comfortable doing so.
The side, captained by former Gamers2 carry Adrian “adrd” Wojcik, then managed a victory against Alternate Fancy to win the $6,000 first prize. The team looked very strong throughout the event, with the Kharazhim play of support James “Bakery” Baker particularly strong. He has only had two losses on the hero in 16 games.
The European Heroes Championship next month will decide which two teams will advance to the Heroes World Championship in California. Many expect the established organizations to dominate. But this performance, Bob? may just force some people reconsider that prediction.
