Bravado Gaming part ways with Heroes of The Storm team

2 min read

Bravado Gaming announced this morning that they are parting ways with their Heroes of The Storm team. This leaves only two teams under the Bravado Gaming banner, CS:GO and Dota 2. A much more centralized focus on the two most popular South African eSports is probably the most sustainable idea right now in South Africa as it allows them to focus their time and resources on two extremely strong teams.

Unfortunately, after 9 months of service we have decided to part ways with our Heroes of the Storm squad, as well as the title as a whole. We shall not be incorporating any additional HotS squads until further notice.

“Bravado Gaming will primarily focus  on maintaining and increasing further exposure & future ventures within our Counter-Strike: Global Offensive (CS:GO) & Defense of the Ancients 2 (DotA2) squads as the two leading E-Sports titles in South Africa,” said Bravado owner Andreas “cent” Hadjipaschali.


For the amount of practice the Bravado Squad put into Heroes of The Storm, as a unit, their list of achievements were something to brag about. Going relatively unbeaten (when it mattered) they grabbed 1st place at rAge, 1st place at Gaming for Charity, and most recently 1st place in the Great Odins Raven online tournament. They also won our very own community cup, which is probably the most important of them all.

We would like to take this opportunity to thank each and every player within our HotS squad for adding value to the Bravado Gaming brand, for acquiring multiple achievements and for being some of the most awesome people we’ve had the pleasure of hosting.

Needless to say the departure and break up of Bravado Hots was inevitable, as I had it on good authority that some of the players were not enjoying playing Heroes of the Storm anymore for many of the same reasons I consider it to be a waste of time. There have been an in flux of tournaments as of late, but they’re heavily overshadowed by the other eSports titles in South Africa.

I understand people enjoy Heroes of the Storm, I did too, once. But the game is just not a good eSport and I hate to be the bad guy in this story, but we’ve had our fun. It’s time to pack it in. Buy Overwatch.

      Interestingly though, look at the direction of the flame as it goes out, and the smoke thereafter. She blew it out before the grumpy kid could interfere. 😛

          The direction would then be moving more to our right. Further to that, she isn’t pursing her lips or blowing in general while the flame goes out. 🙂

            …yet the camera pans out at the critical moment

            I think it is safe to assume, ALIENS

            You can tell by the body itself as well. Lesson 1 in fighting, never judge actions by the eyes, always follow the shoulders and body. Safest way to predict what’s coming next.

            Also, just look at the direction of the damn flame & smoke. The only Alien here is you.

            And Trev.

            Always knew Trev would be spoiling little kiddies’ birthday parties

    Well with every other continent getting qualifiers for the Worlds events (and Asia getting 4) except Africa, it was never really going to pick up

      Africa makes up like 2% of the gaming demographic internationally or some such ludicrously low number. It’s not surprising.

        Fair point, but what better way to grow it than by allowing qualification. I’m pretty sure Asia could survive with one less team

          I agree with you. But first we need the local scene to develop itself to a point where we can compete. HotS is pretty much dead locally, so that also needs to be taken into account. People here play dota, cs:go and CoD mostly. There’s lots of competition there, and so in those fields we have decent teams and lots of desire to compete globally.

          It’s about the players more than anything else, strictly speaking.
