HGL Summer Update Tournaments!

Hello Battleborn Community!

We at HGL are happy to announce that we are hosting 3 new Battleborn tournaments, one for each platform June 17th and 18th. With all of these changes and new cosmetics we are looking forward to seeing different team compositions and players strutting their stuff. If you have just joined us in this amazing video game called Battleborn, and are thinking about joining competitive play this will be the perfect opportunity for you to get a feel for the competitive side of battleborn and to see just how great competitive Battleborn play is. In addition to that we are in the works of organizing community nights at HGL which include pick up matches, training days, Dungeon and Dragons, Discord Dungeons etc. Can’t make it to HGL’s training days? Visit the Unofficial Battleborn Discord and chat in the Battle School channel for help learning the game. Unavailable to make the tournaments that’s alright there are other community ran leagues where you can freely schedule matches. Just hit up Mahazzeeee(XB1)(definitely butchered his name) and Zombie Pizza Man (PC) for information.

Cool to see HGL back. Unfortunately, I personally won’t be able to play in this first tournament as I’ll be out of town but I’ll do my best to push as many Xbox One players as I can to do it.
