Again it is the time of the year all of you know. eSports is coming home!
Once again we will have an amazing tournament in Krefeld, Germany, which the best players from all over the world will attend to play, relax and party at the event with the best atmosphere in eSports!
The 9th edition of this amazing event will take place from 5 - 8 June. As always, there will be a live barcraft at the event - in the Irish Pub “Limericks”. Scroll down to the section “public viewing” to get all the information about it.
As you might know we always play 2 group stages at the first 3 days, followed by a single elimination bracket on the final day. Only the best 2 players from a total of 4 in each group will move on to the next round until only 8 players are left to play the elimination bracket.
The group stage is played in a best-of-3 series but on the final day we will extend the series to a best-of-5 and the final will be played in a thrilling best-of-7 series! All games will be shown on stream. For this we will provide two english streams with professional casters like RotterdaM and of course all the progamers who are available on site. The games will start at 2 pm every day.
The first group stage will be divided into two days, showing four groups per day. On the third day we will have a 2nd group stage where the remaining 16 players fight for a slot in the playoffs. On the final day we will only have the 8 playoff matches: 4, quarterfinals, 2 semifinals, the third place match and ultimately the grand final at the end of the tournament.
5th - 8th $875
We're pleased to work with Blizzard to make HomeStoryCup 9 a StarCraft II World Championship Series (WCS) Global Event. The top players in the tournament will earn WCS points that contribute to their ranking in the WCS Standings. The players will be competing not only for the prize money and the glory of a HomeStoryCup championship, but also WCS points that could help them in the journey to the WCS Global Finals.

The Irish pub “Limericks”, located directly below the TaKeTV studio, will provide a big screen for all days of the HomeStoryCup and the location will even become a part of the event itself.
