The 2016 World of Warcraft Arena World Championship is about to kick off—and for teams across Europe, the battle begins in just a few weeks.
This year, we’re pleased to announce that we’re partnering with StarLadder to produce the European 2016 Road to BlizzCon, including all three qualifier cups.
European Online Qualifiers & Sign-ups
The battle begins with three online qualifier cups, starting in end of June, each with their own $6,000 USD prize pool. You’ll be able to catch them all live on Twitch.tv/Warcraft and YouTube.com/WorldofWarcraft beginning with the Round of 8, with the following schedule:
- Cup 1: July 3
- Cup 2: July 10
- Cup 3: July 17
Note to competitors: games played prior to the Round of 8 will be played in the days leading up to the broadcast.
The top two teams from the first two qualifier cup, and 4 from the third qualifier cup, will move on to the European Regionals. This year’s Regionals will be held at the Cyber Arena in Kiev, Ukraine on September 30 to October 2. Once again, our eight competitors will be fighting for their share of a $100,000 USD prize pool and one of three coveted spots in the Arena World Championship finals at BlizzCon 2016.
The complete official rules are available here.
We can’t wait to see what path this year’s Road to BlizzCon takes, and hope you’ll join us when the qualifiers begin!
