Rozai’s HGC Game of the Week: Dignitas vs Zealots Game 3 (Phase 1 Week 5)

RozaiNews

After the aptly named “rosterpocalypse” post-BlizzCon, Dignitas looked as if it would be the dominant European force. Their first showing at the 2017 Gold Club World Championship would prove that assumption as their last match against Fnatic resulted in a 3-0 victory. Picking up Wubby, without a doubt the greatest solo laner in the world, was a massive upgrade. Fast forward to weeks 1-4 of 2018 HGC Phase 1, and Team Dignitas would only drop a single map in their 3-1 victory over Team Liquid. Going into their Week 5 series against Zealots, they were sitting comfortably with a well-earned 18-1 map record and 6-0 match record.

Buy or Sell: #HGC EU – Week 2

Anne EliseNews

Starting this week, I am doing a weekly feature on Trolls.gg where I will play “Mad Money” with the current goings-on in HGC. These will be fun articles where I tell you whether or not I think a team is on the rise, a team is falling, or something else in HGC is going well or needs a little work. Please remember, these are tongue-in-cheek articles, no one is really buying or selling anything, and this is just to start debate and discussion about how the pro scene is going for NA and EU.

In Defence of the New Guys Team Liquid and Their Winning Start

HoofitNews

Liquid are 2-0 in the HGC putting them in first place. Whilst most would be surprised if that’s how the Division finished, it is still a promising start. Liquid already have as many match wins as they did in the second split of Phase 2. Liquid beat Zealots a team that beat them in their last two matches. Cause to celebrate perhaps?

The Case for Gale Force Esports

Lord'BooNews

I’ve seen a lot of rankings and predictions for the upcoming HGC season and I consistently see GFE placed a bit lower on the rankings. While I can completely understand the logic behind these placements, I don’t agree with them. I’d like to address a number of these points that I think people have in their minds as well as put a few of my own forward.

Report From the (Silver) Mines – Week of 1/8/2016

Dorshe1News

Hey everyone! So I started off the new season with a great 2-0 start, which got reset. Then I went 1-0, but that got reset too. I spent the next few weeks just waiting to make sure it wouldn’t get reset again and then… 4-6. Blah. My rank goal for this season remains unchanged: I want to make it to Silver 3. Also, I am going to make it a goal to play at least 6 games a week this season. I need to ‘git gud’ and the only way to do that is to play games in the competitive game mode.
