Heavy Metal Machines, named The Best New MOBA of 2018 by MMOHUTS, is bringing a new feature to the game to make the scene more competitive for players. The Metal League‘s an in-game event that creates a tournament based on the teams’ score ranking, with a prize pool of €5.000,00 (five thousand euros) besides items in the game.
Well, and how will this work?
This system will work side by side with the Teams feature that’s already in the game. Only subscribed teams will be able to take part. Just in case, if don’t have a squad yet, invite your friends to play or get in our Discord and create yours.
The tournaments in this new feature will be disputed in two phases: classificatory and brackets. To get in the brackets’ stage, the teams will need to score during the classificatory.
With this feature, the game will get a new exclusive queue that will be available only on Saturdays at specific hours. In other words, get a space on your schedule to play on Saturdays, okay?
The Metal League will follow the Metal Pass’ seasons, and the matches will be disputed on specific regions. The first season will roll out only in Europe, and on May the tournaments will also take place on the United States and Brazil servers. But relax, even in specific regions, everyone is INVITED to take part.
And how will the Classificatory Phase work?
This phase will happen on Saturdays, from 14h to 20h UTC-0. In this first season, there will only be 6 classificatory steps, and the 8 teams that achieve the highest score will automatically be in the Brackets Phase of the tournament.
And what about the Brackets Phase, what the heck is that?
This is the final phase of the Metal League, where the 8 best teams from the classifiers will fight for the prize money.
If you’ve seen the European and South American Championships from 2017, the format will be similar to them. There won’t be any queues, and the teams from the brackets will fight in custom matches. Here, the winners will be decided in best of three matches, with single eliminations.
But and the prize?
The total prize is €5.000,00, shared between the 4 best teams from the brackets, like this:
1st place – €2.000,00
2nd place – €1.500,00
3rd place – €1.000,00
4th place – €500,00
Just a reminder, the prize value is split between team members. Ok?
This new system, Metal League, will be added to HMM on March 7th, and the first step of classifiers will happen on March 9th. It seems far from now, but it’s right ahead of us! Invite your friends now and start training!
So, if you don’t have a team yet, get together with your friends, invite everyone and create groups to play. Get to our Discord channel. I guarantee that with this new feature there’ll be a lot of players looking for teams too.
Let’s get to training? We’ll see you in the arena!
