With a new year comes new seasons of eSports and the Heroes of the Dorm competition is no exception. Now in its 4th year, the Heroes of the Dorm has always been a huge chance for Blizzard to show off its game, and an even huger reward at stake for the winning team. Let’s look.
Words don’t do it justice so let’s just start with a Goblin-sized-BOOM! Check out the video below first.
Did you catch that last part? Win. Tuition. For your college career. That’s why people compete right there. That’s huge!
Consider how much schooling is nowadays and how having your tuition paid for you would impact someone. It’s not just one, two, or even three years, but for the entirety of your days in college. That would get anyone excited no matter how it worked.
Heroes of the Dorm holds a special place for me because it was one of the earliest Heroes tournaments I can remember and has been around since even before Heroes official launch date. At the time this felt to me like the perfect send-off for those who were lucky enough to have gotten into the technical-alpha and beta. Like our time had finished and it was time to pass on the torch and let everyone else finally enjoy this game. If you’re as nostalgic as me then you can watch a recap of that time with the original Heroes of the Dorm Heroic Four below.
It makes me feel like I’m looking at toddler pictures of my little one. Who knew they’d grown so much! Time flies.
So what about you? What does Heroes of the Dorm mean to you? Are you in school or about to be? Do you know someone who might come out, or do you plan to compete yourself? Had you even ever heard of Heroes before now? Whichever group you may fit into one thing is for sure. Heroes of the Dorm will bring out some of the youngest and strongest players we have on Battle.net. I simply cannot wait.
