Arizona State University team wins Heroes of the Storm’s Heroes of the Dorm

COLLEGE

Four college teams faced off at the Heroes of the Dorm championship, and now one team has emerged as the winner. Heroes of the Storm‘s newest set of champions is the Real Dream Team from Arizona State University, which beat out teams from UCONN, the University of Texas Arlington, and the University of Tennessee. The prize for victory? College tuition for the remainder of the students’ college careers.

Heroes of the Dorm is an annual competition jointly sponsored by Blizzard Entertainment and Tespa, with the dual purpose of advancing collegiate e-sports and selling Heroes of the Storm as a competitive game. This year’s championship was broadcast on several ESPN satellite networks. Congratulations are in order for the ASU students now enjoying their freedom from tuition.

Leilonii Reht that would make an otherwise unaffordable college affordable though.  ASU might be great but I hope these guy know to look around some now that they have an additional hefty sum.  If they are bright enough of course.

Reht Armsbend The sad part is even with that hefty prize package they’d still be paying $10k-$15k per year extra in tuition at a private school.

deekay_zero Lights_andMusic YOU TELL ME.  I directly copy paste your argument and you claim I’m not quoting you then you proceed to pretend like NCAA athletes are the same as esports athletes without drawing any reasonable comparisons –  what are you saying? You dont like the NCAA?  Okay cool, neither does anyone else, wtf does that have to do with the actual topic at hand
