ASU E-sports: Sun Devils fall to Cal 3-2, Twitter goes nuts

ASU played video games on TV Sunday night and Twitter loved every second of it.

Sunday night things got weird and extremely exciting in the world of ASU "e-sports". The finals of a video game competition called "Heroes of the dorm" was televised on ESPN2.

It involved ASU students playing against Cal in a best of five series of games on different maps. Each player on the winning team walked away with roughly $75,000. It involved dragons breathing fire, and lots of "going ham on this core" according to one of four play-by-play announcers. ASU lost the match 3-2.

What was actually happening on the screen? I couldn't tell you. What I do know is that Twitter had a blast and the announcers maybe had even more fun.

Here's a story on the players Fox 10 did before the match.
