Heroes of the Dorm 2017 To Be Broadcast On Facebook Only

Recommended Posts

Blizzard has announced the third installment of its Heroes of the Dorm collegiate tournament. This year, Facebook will host the event.

The popular Heroes of the Storm collegiate tournament, that brought to the surface popular Heroes players like MichaelUdall, Fan and more, is back for its 2017 installment. The primary info on the prizes and the competition dates was published officially and team registrations are now open!

An interesting change this year is that the entire event will be broadcast solely on Facebook. This was also confirmed by a press release by Blizzard Entertainment. This means that we won't see the finals on television (the finals from 2015 and 2016 were shown on ESPN 2), nor will we be able to watch VoDs on YouTube or Twitch.

A last crucial detail is this: are we getting a Cheerleader Kerrigan skin?!

Ready for another round of Heroes of the Storm college esports action? Heroes of the Dorm is returning once again for more prizes, more rivalries, and more intense action in the Nexus, with Cheerleader Kerrigan leading the charge! College students from both the United States and Canada are eligible to participate in this epic clash of the colleges, and with the winner’s remaining college tuition being paid off, you can expect to see some fierce competition!

It will be even easier for esports fans to follow Heroes of the Dorm week in and week out in 2017, with the entirety of the tournament being streamed exclusively on Facebook! That means you’ll be able to follow your favorite team from the regular season all the way to the Heroic Four, with constant action being delivered right to your Facebook feed. If you’re looking for a more in-depth look at Heroes of the Dorm, you can also head to www.heroesofthedorm.com to keep up with statistics, the Bracket Challenge, Pick ‘em Challenge, and more.

Everyone Can Play, Anyone Can Win

Midway through the tournament, fans get a second chance in the Pick ‘em Challenge, where they’ll pick just one team to hopefully carry them all the way to the National Championship.

There will still be VOD.  Blizzard creates the videos from their event, then hosts them via YouTube.  It will be broadcast LIVE only on FaceBook.  However, VOD will be available after Blizzard uploads the clips to YouTube.
