After meeting with over forty players across nine teams, Roll20® is proud to announce that we are transitioning back into the Nexus with the former roster of the European Union Heroes Global Championship team Zealots. The roster is:
Matic “Zarmony” Mikec has been battling in the Nexus since the beginning in 2014. Having placed second in the 2015 Heroes of the Storm World Championship and second in the first 2018 HGC Western Clash, he is no stranger to the rigors of competition. Zarmony plays the offlane / melee tank flex position.
Daniel “Shad” González was not always trying to keep heroes alive. From the start of his Heroes career, Shad has played tank, bruiser, flex, assassin, and now support. He’s an extremely versatile player and since moving to support, he has made a name for himself via Stukov play.
Christoph “Cris” Gowitzke Having competed since January of 2015, Cris operates as the stalwart ranged assassin role, with recent specialties including Hanzo, Tracer, and Fenix. He is one of the most well-known streamers of Heroes of the Storm in Europe.
Dob “QuackNiix” Engström is one of the most decorated Western players in Heroes with back to back Blizzcon runner-ups and a Mid-Season Brawl championship. As the shotcaller for Roll20 esports, QuackNiix brings his signature assassins and cut throat core calls to the team.
Robert “robadobah” Purling, while new to HGC EU, was king of the Australia and New Zealand region of Heroes of the Storm for two years straight. No matter what team he was on, they always managed to be the top team in the region. He’s now brought his warrior skills to Europe to see if he can conquer another region.
James “Muppet” Ogilvy has been with Zealots as a manager since its inception at the start of 2017, working to handle team communication in and out of the game. He has been instrumental in introducing multiple players to the competitive Heroes of the Storm scene.
We’re very excited to re-enter the fray with this group. The viewership of the HGC is rising, with the competition and organizations throughout play– particularly in EU– at their strongest. This new roster has the experience, talent, and potential to be a major force in evolving the league– helping us to set a tone across esports consistent with the camaraderie and sustainability we value as the Roll20 community.
