    Tryhard - For Good!

    How Tryhard for Good Works:

    • Phase One (April 25 – May 1):
      • For the first week of the competition, each of the contenders will be teaming up with the coaches listed below for some hands-on instruction. Here’s where they’ll learn the ins-and-outs of Heroes of the Storm, sharpen their competitive skills, and get their Hero League game faces on!
    • Phase Two (May 2 – 16):
      • The gloves come off! For the next two weeks, each competitor will claw their way to the top of the Hero League solo queue ladder with no more assistance from the coaches. Good luck!
    • Follow Along!
      • Tune in to your favorite streamers’ Twitch channels to learn alongside them during Phase One, and keep up with their progress as they climb the Hero League ladder during Phase Two! Find links to each streamer’s channel in the Competitors and Coaches sections below.

    At the end of the challenge, each sponsored streamer’s rank on the Hero League ladder will determine the donation amount we’ll make to Make-A-Wish:

    REQUIREMENTS PRIZE

    Reach Platinum Rank $1500
    Reach Diamond Rank $2000
    Reach Diamond Ranks 1-5 $500 Per tier of Diamond

    Win Hero League Matches $100 Per Hero League win
    Climb to the Top $25k to the Competitor who Reaches the Highest Rank!

    NOTE: Each higher tier of prizes will also include the rewards for the ranks below it. For example, if a competitor reaches Diamond 3 they will receive all rewards for Gold, Platinum, Diamond, Diamond 4 + 5, the Hero League win total, and the Diamond 3 prize.

    This could be huge, these streamers are extremely popular, Dryus often gets more views that the blizzheroes channel. Chat is certain to be toxic as hell, but I'm excited.

    Was watching Dunktrain yday and he gave some top notch advice to Scarra. Specifically something along the lines of "I always vote supports at the end so they feel good and play supports, meaning I don't have to play them". Solid Gold.

    Scarra plays Varian and has a moment of realization (bonus Bakery doing his thing as Kharazim): https://clips.twitch.tv/JazzyPoorVanillaDBstyle

    Don't waste time to watch others play.

    Have more fun by playing games yourself.

    You can't dictate how someone has fun. "Don't watch actors act, have more fun acting yourself".
