Put down those textbooks and pick up that mouse and keyboard, kid, because you’re going to game for your education this spring.
Blizzard announced today that Heroes of the Storm is hosting the return of Heroes of the Dorm, a tournament aimed at college students and loaded with prizes and scholarships. Teams can register for the event through February 18th, after which the tournament will take place in March and April. Heroes of the Dorm will be broadcast on YouTube, Twitch, ESPN3, and ESPN2.
There’s a lot on the line for winning teams beyond publicity. Undergraduate and graduate students can win up to $75,000 in scholarships apiece for being number one. Other prizes include in-game skins, custom-built PCs, and limited edition portraits (the last will be awarded to all participants). Viewers can get a slice of the $500,000 prize pool, too, by voting on winning brackets; the most accurate prognosticator will receive $10,000.
