Hi!

Another day another awesomeness from Blizzard. I really like the idea of giving free college chance to college students.



Blizzard is hosting a Heroes of the Storm tournament exclusive to US and Canada college students. The champion team of the tournament will received college tuition for 3 years up to $75000 USD per player. If the player is a fourth year student, then he/she will receive $25000 USD to pay back college expenses. Top 4 teams' players will receive custom gaming rigs. Specifications of these gaming rigs are:
