For the fourth year in a row, Blizzard Entertainment is teaming up with Tespa to put together the Heroes of the Dorm tournament with over $500,000 in scholarships and prizes at stake.
College students from around North America will be pitted against one another in Season Play for the next month based on geographic regions to narrow down the field of participants come March 11.
The current format splits up teams into Regions of 12-16 teams who will compete in best-of-three pool play matches to determine who will be placed into the National Championship Bracket alongside Regional champions.
Come March 28, a 64-team bracket will be created of the teams who fared the best in pool play. With all bracket games being broadcast live on Twitch, viewers can tune in and support their favorite colleges, players and teams.
Once the field has been narrowed down to the final four, or the Heroic Four as it is called, teams will gather in one arena for a live event where a champion will be crowned over the course of a weekend.
First place awards college tuition for up to three years ($75,000) total to each player and participants, depending on how far you advance, receive numerous in-game prizes with the Heroic Four receiving a custom built PC gaming system for each player.
This year, Blizzard partnered with Raycom sports to broadcast pool play matches on Twitch with casters Paul “InVerum” Todkill, Bron “TheSource” Mitchell, Albert “Halorin” Hailey III and former professional player Derek “DunkTrain” Arabian bringing you the action live from the studio.
Previous participants in the Heroes of the Dorm tournament have gone on to play professionally, including numerous current players within the Heroes Global Championship scene.
