Some of the world’s best brawlers are heading to Jönköping, Sweden as DreamHack plays Heroes! On November 26 and 27, DreamHack Winter will host its biggest Heroes of the Storm tournament to date, with powerhouse pros including Fnatic, Team Liquid, and Team Dignitas battling it out for a chunk of the $25,000 USD prize pool.
DreamHack is one of the biggest LAN events in the world, but if you’re not attending in person, you can still catch the action live on Twitch. And if you haven’t unlocked the ogre-magi Cho’gall in-game yet, there’s even more reason to tune in! Anyone who watches the finals on Friday, November 27 using a Twitch account that’s linked to their Battle.net account will receive access to the Nexus’s first cooperative Hero.
You and a friend can prove that two heads are better than one by teaming up and playing as a single character. The ogre outbreak has already begun, and by playing with others who have yet to unlock Cho’gall, you can also grant them access to the new Hero and help spread the epidemic even further!
How to link your Twitch and Battle.net accounts
If you haven’t linked your Twitch and Battle.net accounts yet, here’s what you need to do:
- Log in to your account on Twitch
- Navigate to the Settings menu by clicking your account name in the top-right corner of the home screen
- Go to the Connections tab
- Follow the instructions after selecting a region and clicking ‘Connect’ next to Blizzard Battle.net
Check out our Hero Week blog for more on Cho’gall, and keep an eye on DreamHack’s tournament page for all the details on the event. You can also follow the tournament on social media using the #DreamHackPlaysHeroes hashtag and by following @blizzheroes and @esportsheroes on Twitter.
How can I unlock Cho’gall by watching the finals?
Make sure your Battle.net and Twitch accounts are linked by following the steps above, and then tune in to twitch.tv/blizzheroes or twitch.tv/dreamhackheroes at any point between 9:00 a.m. PST (18:00 CET) and the end of the tournament broadcast on Friday, November 27.
My Twitch account and my Battle.net account are linked; is there anything else I need to do?
Just make sure that you’re logged in to your Twitch account when you watch the tournament.
With the release of Towers of Doom the PTR has been brought offline for now. Keep that in mind if you used the PTR for watching replays of old versions.
Update - November 24, 2015:
We've just brought the PTR Offline as part of our preparation for bringing Towers of Doom, our newest Battleground, to the live version of Heroes.
Thank you to everyone who participated on the PTR this time around. We'll see you next time!
