Weâ€™re delighted to announce our presence at DreamHack Winter 2012, taking place November 22-25 in Jonkoping, Sweden. Weâ€™ll be providing plenty of entertainment and hosting various fun activities that you can take part in, and weâ€™ll also have several prizes and goodies you can win, like for an example World of Warcraft Action Figures, StarCraft II Mega Bloks Battlecruisers, Collectorâ€™s Edition boxes, and much more. Check out some of the things we will be doing at the event below.
In addition to watching StarCraft II Tournament at the event, eSports fans will have the opportunity to attend StarCraft Academy and learn how to play StarCraft II from professional gamers.
Jade Serpent Challenge
World of Warcraft players at the event will be able to participate in a challenge mode dungeon contest, requiring the highest skill and teamwork. Those who accept the challenge will be able to use their own computers to compete, and weâ€™ll select the fastest groups to battle it out on stage for glory and cool prizes.
