Week 8 of the Heroes Global Championship (HGC) is underway and the best professional Heroes of the Storm teams in North America, Europe, China, and Korea continue to battle for a spot at the Mid-Season Brawl and the chance to take home the $80,000 first prize.

For every winner, though, there needs to be a loser, and for several teams, the grim prospect of going to the Crucible, where their spot in the HGC roster will hang in the balance, is becoming a growingly real possibility.
