Battle.net World Championship detailed, 28 countries involved

Thursday, 5th April 2012 06:46 GMT By Brenna Hillier

The ultimate tournament of the Starcraft II World Championship Series is starting to take shape.

Blizzard has started to give more detail on the Battle.net World Championship, which is the grand final of more than 30 major eSports events over the course of the season.

The qualifying process begins at the national level, in what the publisher describes as “the most open opportunity to participate in a global-scale tournament that Blizzard Entertainment has ever put forth”.

Blizzard will be handing over national seeds to eSports organisations and partners, which will be trusted to select champions in the most fitting manner – through grass roots tournaments, probably.

Those who obtain a seed at the local level will be firmly on the path to global glory, going on to one of the 28 national championships; participating countries are listed below.

National championships seed to a series of continental events, which finally culminate in the global championship event – the Battle.net World Championship.

The total prize pools; details of local tournaments; and information on how unlisted nationals can enter will all be announced in the near future. Hit the link above for more information.

    You do realize that you can’t buy the original right? What you buy in stores are copies of a master disc, which is the original.

    @6
    Hah yeah xD Although, Naniwa and Stephano are looking really really good so far o.O
    TLO needs to get his act together though.

    @3 If you knew anything about competitive play, its done ONLINE, and in terms of Blizzard, that means logging on to battle.net qhich requires an ORIGINAL copy. Sigh

    @7 Yeah Stephano looks almost invincible these days :-( having said that he still doesn’t match up to most the Korean pros!

    @8 I don’t know man. He did beat Polt in the Lone Star Clash (3-1) who is a Code S player, and he also won against PuMa at Assemby Winter 2012 (3-0).
    He might actually have a chance at beating a high profile such as DRG o.O
