The team will be participating in the new premier league "HGC" (Heroes of the storm global circuit) The system will consist of a league based system with live tournaments throughout the year which you can read up on here

The team's in-game shotcaller and drafter, Alexander "AlexTheProG" Grumstrup, had the following to say about his new home:
"I'm very excited to be joining Tricked eSport, an up and coming Danish organization. With their support, we will assuredly reach our full potential whilst having a great time in the HGC. In joining, we also hope to establish Tricked eSport as a major contender in the HoTS scene."


Tricked eSport's CEO, Morten "Phy" Jensen, also gave a statement about Tricked's venture into HOTS:
"Today I'm very happy to announce something special as we venture into uncharted territory. Heroes of the Storm is a totally new game in which we have no former past with. We had a couple of opportunities to expand our team section and this time we really had to dig down and do the research in both the new league structure and the future scene. From what we have learned it really looks like Blizzard is committed to this game and will only add more funding into the scene over the next year. I think in 2017 HOTS will move to a place that is way more competitive than before and probably take some of the market share from Dota and League. The competitive scene will only grow when people find out that Blizzard make you able to build a future / career in this game now."

The team's first appearance will be in the HGC league wich will start later in January. Blizzard made this video explaining a bit about the new league structure and format
