LOS ANGELES — Blizzard says it will pay each team competing in one of its Heroes of the Storm tournaments at least $100,000 no matter where they place, possibly the largest guaranteed minimum in esports.

The minimum prize money could set a precedent for future events — and not just Blizzard's. Though other events have offered base pay, they weren't close to this amount.

Blizzard's head of esports Tweeted this on Wednesday kicking off annoucments for BlizzCon opening week:

All #HGC Pro League teams competing from January to November will earn AT LEAST$100,000. Let's go!!!!
