One Heroes of the Storm fan made a good point about the finals being aired on ESPN: people without cable can't watch. Esports are generally streamed on Twitch, but Heroes of the Dorm was not.\r

@BlizzHeroes Never again should you work with ESPN. Most of ur fan are not able to watch live as they have for before the semifinals.\r

One guy had a pretty good suggestion for people upset about what they were seeing.\r

ESPN, ESPN2, ABC, ESPNU, ESPN News, ESPN Radio, ESPN3. If you don't like what's on ESPN2, you'll find something you like on another channel.\r

For the second year in a row, Blizzard's Heroes of the Storm was aired on ESPN 2, the secondary channel of America's most popular sports network. The event was planned months in advance, but most viewers were unaware the Heroes of the Dorm tournament would be broadcasted live on their favorite channel, and hilarious tweets ensued.

This guy wasn't sure if ESPN knew what it was doing.
