Blizzard Entertainment is teaming up with Facebook to offer the most complete viewing experience yet for Heroes of the Dorm 2017.
Blizzard and Tespa’s preeminent collegiate Esports tournament once again offers Heroes of the Storm teams from colleges across the United States and Canada a chance to earn free tuition for the remainder of their college careers—more than $500,000 USD in scholarships and prizes will be handed out this Spring (or Autumn here in Australia and New Zealand).
For the first time ever, Heroes of the Dorm will be broadcast via Facebook Live on the Heroes of the Storm Esports Facebook page, beginning with the regular season and continuing all the way through the Heroic Four. Up-to-date statistics, team and player profiles, the Bracket Challenge, and more will all be available on www.heroesofthedorm.com. With Facebook friends and Heroes of the Storm personalities just a click away, Heroes of the Dorm 2017 will be a new kind of connected esports event. From the nervous anticipation of the first regular season matches, to the bright lights and excitement of the championship, the global social network will enhance every shareable, likeable, and otherwise epic moment in Heroes of the Dorm.
Fans can relive the gripping journey of last year’s Heroes of the Dorm Championship team in A New Hero: The Rise of College Esports, a documentary on Arizona State’s climb to the top of college esports.
