Florianopolis, August 7, 2019 – After the success of Metal League’s first editions, which were held in the European and South American servers respectively, the players of Heavy Metal Machines (HMM), a car battle MOBA developed by the Brazilian company Hoplon, will be invited to invade North America in another great competition. In partnership with ESL Play, the new edition of Metal League starts on August 10th and players from all around the world will be able to compete for the cash prize pool of US $5,000. The tournament has no registration fee and in order to participate teams who are interested just need to enter the Metal League in-game queue on the day and time of the tournament.
“In the first tournaments, 46 teams from 16 different countries went for the Heavy Metal Machines Metal League title, and only the Neon Knights (Europe) and Roadkill (Brazil) were able to celebrate as champions and take home the top prize money for each competition”, recalled Rodrigo Campos, Hoplon’s CEO. “We’re excited to find out who will earn the first prize in the North American server and become champions as part of this exclusive list”.
“Metal League 5 will be held during season five of the Metal Pass and has everything to be the most disputed and democratic of the tournament of the season until now, as both Europeans and South Americans can play in the North American server without lag. Several experienced teams and lots of great amateur players will be taking their chances in the Ranked Mode. Heavy Metal Machine can now also be played using any type of gamepads, including Xbox 360, Xbox One and PS4 controllers”, said Eros Carvalho, Hoplon’s Head of Studio. “This latest addition will bring an interesting balance to the tournament, as well as encouraging players who prefer these types of controllers to participate.”
The Metal League 5 starts on August 10th and will have many battles each week (every Saturday), including new teams who, thanks to an intelligent scoring system, can win the title even if they join the tournament whilst it’s already ongoing. At the end of the six Saturdays of the competition, the top eight teams will qualify to the finals, which will be played on September 21st, in best of 3 matches. The champions will take the US $2,000 prize, and the second spot will receive US $1,500, the third place US $1,000 and the fourth takes US $500.
