With Dreamhack Winter fastly approaching, the organizers behind the event have recently announced a prize pool increase of 100,000 SEK for their HoN Tournament, which converts the event in one of the biggest in the whole HoN season.
The tournament will take place from November 24th through to November the 27th, and will see the European elite battle it out with some of the best talents the US and Australia have to offer, looking to grab a piece of the 300,000 SEK cake.
Our HoN team will be heading down to Jonkoping, where they will try to repeat their great result from Dreamhack Summer, where they managed to come 2nd, just losing to Fnatic.MSi in the finals.
