The Battle.net World Championship event — the culmination of the over 30 StarCraft II World Championship Series (WCS) tournaments, and home to the upcoming World of Warcraft Arena global finals — will take place November 17 and 18 in Shanghai, China. With so many talented players competing to be crowned 2012â€™s world champion, we want to see faces from all over the world live, in the crowd, and cheering on their hometown heroes.
In the near future weâ€™ll open up tickets sales for the event. Keep in mind, however, since we will be offering tickets through our Chinese website, some western payments may not be supported. If youâ€™re determined to make the trip to Shanghai for the ultimate StarCraft II event, though, we want to help you out. Weâ€™ve given several of our eSports partners, as well as StarCraft II and World of Warcraft fansites a collection of tickets.
In the coming days youâ€™ll find information on the following websites about how to claim tickets of your own. Weâ€™ll be sure to update this post as well when individual website ticket promotions are live.
We hope to see you in China!
