Watch this Heroes of the Dorm documentary and fall in love with Esports

heroes-dorm

During Blizzcon 2016 they screened A New Hero: The Rise of College Esports and I was blown away. Besides the insane production quality, watching these university students struggle with balancing game time and studies, the pressures of being launched into the spotlight and more, I sat spellbound.

Take a look into how Heroes of the Storm is being used in America to literally change the lives of a handful of students. They battle for scholarships and the journey is quite emotionally charged. If you were ever mildly interested in who plays these games, or how a tournament is run, or what it feels like to come close to the taste of victory and watch things fall apart, this documentary has it all. You might want to keep a box of tissues nearby though.

If it has the letters RPG in it, I am there. Still battling with balancing trying to play every single game that grabs my interest, getting 100% in a JRPG, and devoting time to my second home in Azeroth.
