To celebrate the culmination of the annual Heroes of the Dorm competition this weekend, Blizzard is opening up Heroes of the Storm and are not only making every Hero free to play, but are also offering a 50% XP bonus for a limited time.
Both events start this Friday, April 8th at 8 a.m. PT in all regions, and the Unlocked Heroes Event will end April 11th at 10 a.m. PT while the 50% Bonus XP Event will continue until April 18th at 10 a.m. PT. And if you play with friends during this time period, you’ll also get the 50% friend bonus on top of the event XP when you party up together — it’ll definitely be a good time to try out all the Heroes in the Nexus and get a boost to leveling them.
There are currently four teams remaining in the Heroes of the Dorm competition — Arizona State University, University of Connecticut, University of Texas Arlington, and Tennessee — and they’ll be facing off on April 9-10 at the CenturyLink Field Event Center in Seattle Washington where the winning team will take home bragging rights and all five players on the winning team earn tuition for their college career.
You can catch the Heroic Four Live Event starting at 5 p.m. PT on April 9th on ESPN3, Twitch, and YouTube… and be sure to head into the Nexus this weekend to try out all the Heroes and get your bonus XP!Source: Blizzard
