Blizzard Annoucces: TeSPA Collegiate Hearthstone Championship

Fans of Blizzards “Heroes of the Dorm” Tournament are in luck! If you didn’t get a chance to compete last years, or if you are interested in spectating, Blizzard has announced that the TeSPA Collegiate Hearthstone Championship will be back this fall and will be offering a brand new format—and some legendary rewards are up for grabs.

The TeSPA Collegiate Hearthstone Championship, which is produced in partnership with Twitch, will invite students from schools across North America in order to compete in a new team format that will offer more than $100,000 in scholarship money. This time around the company is offering $5,000 more in scholarship money. Each team is made up of three students playing one deck together at the same time, this is a different format of what players saw last year, the reason behind it? It is designed to help foster school affinity, encourage teamwork and support the growth of local competitive gaming communities. The tournament will span for nine weeks, which will feature a weekly broadcast two nights a week on Twitch.

For those of you who are interested students can register today through Friday, September 25 at TeSPA Tournaments . Additional information about team requirements, season play, playoffs and the championship can also be found on theTeSPA Tournaments site.
