GameReplays.org, in association with S2 Games, is extremely excited to announce the commencement of Amateur League Season 3, and this time around we're featuring a prize pool of 10,000 Gold Coins! Our first two seasons were extremely popular, and we look forward to another successful tournament season featuring more amazing matches.

This league is for all you Heroes of Newerth Amateurs out there, for you to feel the competitiveness of this awesome game, and most importantly to have a lot of fun. Check out the tournament information below and scroll down to find instructions on how to signup for our first qualifier, which will take place this coming Saturday, February 4, 2012!


  • This tournament is meant for Amateur players only, however there are no set MMR restrictions. If you have won cash prizes from Heroes of Newerth in the past you are ineligible to participate. Suspected smurfing will result in IP checks and, if guilty, bans from future GR tournaments.
  • There will be two divisions (US and EU).
  • There will be four tournament qualifiers for each division, followed by a 8-Team Single Elimination Bo3 Division Championship Bracket.

  • Signups end at midnight CST of the Friday before each Saturday Tournament Qualifier, or whenever all 32 slots are filled.
  • Teams MUST include preferred playing server so there is no issues about ping during the Tournament, but in US division US servers will be used, and in the EU one, EU servers.
  • The Season is scheduled to last 5 weeks including the Division Battle Championship (US vs. EU).
  • After all four qualifiers are completed, the top 8 teams from each Division will be seeded into a single elimination tournament that will start on the last and final week.
