With the finals of the second Heroes of the Dorm tournament this weekend, Blizzard has gone all out to promote the event with an unprecedented free weekend.
For the first time ever, all 50 of the playable heroes in Heroes of the Storm will be completely free to play from Friday morning—10am pacific—until Monday at the same time.
That includes the game’s latest hero, Dehaka, and new favorites like Li Ming and Greymane.
Matches during that time will also grant 50 percent bonus experience.
The Heroes of the Dorm finals will be broadcast live on ESPN2 for the second year running, with four teams still in contention for the prizepool of more than $500,000 in scholarships.
Favorites to take the title are are Real Dream Team from Arizona State, the team led by two pro players—former COGnitive Gaming player Austin “Shot” Lonsert and Mike Udall of Panda Global. They will face the Tricky Turtles from the University of Connecticut, with University of Texas-Arlington and University of Tennessee, Knoxville on the other side of the bracket.
The final four will be played from the CenturyLink Field Event Center in Seattle, Wash.
