Blizzard Announces Heroes Of The Dorm, New Tournament For College Students Who Don't Go To Class [VIDEO]
Did you go to college for the express purpose of furthering your education, only to end up playing a lot of video games? Well, Blizzard is here to help. If you're really, really good at Heroes of the Storm, they'll let you keep playing it at school...for free!
The company has announced Heroes of the Dorm, a new North American exclusive tournament. Collegiate teams - who honestly really should be studying - can compete against one another for over $450,000 in prizes, including free tuition for the winning group of heroes.
You can register at heroesofthedorm.com until March 26, with qualifying rounds taking place a few days later. Teams who pass will then compete in a 64 team single-elimination melee in April for a chance to battle in the finals, to be aired on ESPN.
So, I guess they're supporting the idea of college? But, to be honest, to be good at a MOBA, you really have to forsake everything else: social life, dating and especially classes. Ain't nobody got time for books when there are lanes to push, after all. Where was this when I was coming up? I played World of Warcraft nearly my entire time at school and look where I am today! (please kids, don't emulate my poor life choices)
For those of you who are not academically gifted - non-students to be precise - you can still get in on the action by picking winners in a new fantasy bracket. If you pick the winning team, you'll get a cool $10,000.
Watch the trailer below and get ready to flunk, Heroes of the Dorm happens soon.
