Heroes of the Dorm is returning once again for its third year. The esports tournament allows college teams to compete against one another while playing the battle arena game Heroes of the Storm.

This year, Blizzard has announced that they’ll be partnering with Facebook to broadcast the event live. Fans can watch the entire season unfold on the Heroes of the Dorm Facebook page once it begins on February 15. The bracket of teams will eventually narrow down to the Heroic Four and culminate in the National Championship, which will be held on April 8.

Anyone who wants to relive the success story of last year’s champions from Arizona State can check out the documentary A New Hero: The Rise of College Esports. Pixelkin’s coverage of last year’s event is here.

College teams in the U.S. and Canada interested in competing can visit the official website to sign up. Winning teams have the chance to earn upwards of $500,000 in scholarship and prize money. Even if you can’t compete, you can still win a cash prize for participating in the Heroes of the Dorm Bracket Challenge and Pick ’em Challenge. Beginning with the Round of 64, anyone who picks the winners in a matchup will walk away with a prize, and the grand winner will get $10,000.
