2015 Dorm Champions, the UC Berkeley ‘Golden Bears,’ are fielding an all-new team. Can they repeat?
Who’s going HAM on the Core this time around?
To find out, you’ll need to watch as the top 64 collegiate teams battle through a single-elimination bracket with the goal of securing a spot in the Heroic Four, an epic two-day event to be held on April 9–10 at the sports mecca of the Pacific Northwest: the CenturyLink Field Event Center in Seattle, Washington. The competition will be telecast live on ESPN2.
Be a Part of the Experience
We’d love to have you be a part of the Heroes of the Dorm Heroic Four live event at the CenturyLink Field Event Center in Seattle! Last year’s Heroic Four on ESPN2 was an incredible experience, and we’re aiming even higher in 2016! We’ll be giving away all sorts of awesome prizes to attendees, including Azmodunk bundles, and gaming hardware and peripherals from our sponsors.
General admission is free, but a limited number of $15 premium tickets are also available through Ticketmaster. Premium tickets include priority access to the venue, a Hero skin, and a Heroes of the Dorm 2016 T-shirt.
The Stakes Are High
These student warriors are fighting for tuition for the remainder of their college careers, while anyone who fills out a bracket and follows along from home is also in the running to reap big rewards in the Bracket Challenge, including a $10,000 grand prize for the best bracket. The action is about to heat up with more than $500,000 in scholarships and other prizes within reach!

Welcome to the Jam
The top 500 brackets will receive a bundle featuring Azmodan, a long-range Specialist and one of the great evils from the Diablo series, plus his ridiculously cool new basketball-themed Azmodunk skin. This fun new spin on the Lord of Sin brings a sick crossover dribble into the game, which is perfect for breaking the enemy team’s ankles before he starts raining threes (or fiery Globes of Annihilation) on the opposition! Check out our Azmodunk announcement blog here.
Bracket Play matches will air on Saturdays and Sundays on ESPN3, Twitch, or YouTube, while the Heroic Four, culminating in the Grand Finals, will be telecast live on ESPN2
