Warcraft's World Championships will once again go down in Yinchuan, China in December this year. So far we saw two Chinese and one Korean qualifier to determine the ten best players in the world to compete for the highest prize money in today's scene.

Finally it is time for European players to throw their hats into the competition, as the Open Pre-Qualifier for eight slots to the Main Qualifier is happening this Sunday, 17.00 CEST!

Update: Invited Players released!
Update 2: Tournament has been postponed to 17.00 CEST / 18.00 MSK

Nicenienice. Cheering for Worker and Happy to get variety of the races, since all the NE players have the potential to go all the way / qualify.

Absolutely nonsense to make quali at such an early time, its bo1 untill 1/4, requires like 2.5-3 hours. I guess you didnt think about it and just put default gera cup time. Sad.

warchief and yaws have the strongest nerves.I think, Foggy has the best skill, but he is not very stable, when the big guys come to clash :).Happy and Cash will be a surprise, even though I love them :)
