College football offseason got you down? Is your school’s basketball team getting dunked on? Lucky for you we’ve got another chance for you to flex your school spirit, courtesy of Blizzard and Tespa.
February marks the start of play for Tespa’s Spring Leagues, featuring collegiate athletes from all over North America competing in StarCraft II, Hearthstone, Heroes of the Storm, and Overwatch. You can catch the action all month long right here on Twitch.
First up is Heroes of the Dorm 2018, which will feature students facing off in the Nexus for a chance to win scholarships, hardware, and of course, bragging rights for the 2018 season. Season play runs from Feb. 6 to March 8, leading directly into the Regional Championships on March 11. This all builds up to the Heroes of the Dorm National Championship on (date TBA). Watch it all on Blizzard’s official Heroes of the Storm Twitch channel, /BlizzHeroes.
If you who prefer the intensity of a one-on-one showdown, Tespa’s StarCraft II and Hearthstone events start next week. Qualifiers for the TCS: StarCraft 2 Team Brawl Tournament will take place February 10–11, with the winners moving on to compete for $35,000 in scholarships in the official matches beginning Feb 17.
