coL.HoN in Dreamhack Qualifier Finals


In a two week tournament starting with 128 hopeful teams, only two remain. compLexity Gaming will take on Internet Gangsters for the final NA/EU slot to the $30,000 Heroes of Newerth Dreamhack Summer event.

For compLexity Gaming this is the last chance to make it to Jönköping and a chance at redemption. The Sound Blaster Heroes League champions last struck gold just two months ago, but since then the North American team has struggled online and off. After being stopped just short of four HoN Tour cycle championships and a trip to Thailand to compete in the GSL the coL.HoN squad is looking to close this one out. A trip to Sweden will not only give the team a chance at one of the most prestigious LANs in HoN’s history but also an opportunity to secure their first offline championship.

Standing in their way is the new all-star team in HoN, the Internet Gangsters. The team, captained by current Dreamhack champion iNsania (formerly of Trademark eSports), has made a big splash in the HoN scene since it’s creation one month ago. With a roster comprised of powerhouse players from multiple top teams iG has made a deep run in the Dreamhack qualifiers, even defeating compLexity 2-1 in the winner’s bracket semi-finals before dropping 0-2 to top HoN dog, Team stayGreen. The coL vs iG match earlier in the tournament caused tensions to flare between the two teams, leading to a new rivalry which is sure to be seen in today’s highly anticipated rematch.

Tune in for all the action as compLexity.HoN takes on Internet Gangsters for a trip to Dreamhack. The best of 3 match starts at 1530 EST / 2130 CEST with coverage to be provided by Honcast.
