HGC Week 1 has finally arrived! Let's take a look at the top 5 North American plays during the opening weekend for the 2017 Heroes Global Championship. 


#5: This play had very minimal impact on the overall result of the game, but the timing of the shield and portal by Glaurung was just too good to pass up. It's a very entertaining play to watch.

#4: Team Naventic was looking at being swept by Tempo Storm in the opening match of Day 1, but this play turned everything around. They were able to capitalize off the kills and take Tempo Storm's core to win and force Game 4.

#3: B-Step vs. Gale Force eSports was a very tight series, going all the way to Game 5. This risky boss play by B-Step is what sealed the deal and allowed Gale Force eSports to win the series.

#2: I chose this play for a few reasons, mainly because of how fast 3 of Tempo Storm's heroes got deleted, but also because this is the game-winning team fight for Team Naventic, forcing a Game 5 in the series.

#1: This is a legendary play by both iDream and KingCaffeine, securing a 5 hero Mosh Pit. The play easily allows B-Step to take the core and gain the lead on the series 2-1.
