Watch DreamHack Winter and Unlock Cho’gall
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!

- Log in to your account on Twitch
