World of Warcraft Esports: 2018 Plans Revealed

 

 

Official Blizzard Quote:

Lastyear was huge for WoW esports, with the introduction of the Mythic Dungeon Invitational (MDI), the WoW Arena Championship tournament matches throughout the year, and a tense and exciting championship match at BlizzCon. We’re proud of all we have achieved, but we won’t rest on our laurels: we are hard at work gearing up for 2018—with more teams, more talent, and more epic battles that will have us all on the edge of our seats.

 

THE 2018 WOW ARENA WORLD CHAMPIONSHIP (AWC)

The biggest event in WoW esports will be supported by a full calendar of tournaments around the world, ensuring only the most battle-tested and proven teams have a shot at the 2018 WoW Arena World Championship. At the championship tournament itself, teams will be fighting for their share of a $280,000 prize pool and WoW Arena glory.

We'll be back later in the year to discuss how teams from China, Latin America, and Asia-Pacific make their way to the 2018 Arena World Championship.

 

INTRODUCING SEASONAL FINALS FOR NORTH AMERICA AND EUROPE

*drum roll* We are delighted to announce TWO seasonal finals where the best North American and European Teams will clash for the first time ever outside of the World Championship. The first season finals will be decided in March at a live event.

 

- Each event will feature eight teams: The top four teams from Europe and the top four teams from North America.

- Both events in 2018 will offer $100,000 prize pools—that’s two opportunities for players in Europe and North America to land a share of $100k before the World Championship is even on the horizon.

- The eight teams will also be competing for a spot in the WoW Arena World Championship, rewarded to the winners at each of the two events.

Every other week, a new PvP Brawl will be available to players looking for something just a little different. Each Brawl will offer a variety of modes, rules, and scenic changes to the usual Battleground gameplay, and you’ll find them in the Group Finder tool (hotkey “I”) in the Player vs. Player tab. Just like Random Battlegrounds, you’ll receive a reward for achieving victory. Here are just a few of the Brawls you can look forward to:

Do you have a flag? Warsong Gulch has always been the scene of an epic capture-the-flag battle, but what happens when you can capture your enemy’s flag without your own at base?Or if there are multiple flags at each base? Find out when you step into this PvP Brawl! We’ve also added a few more power-ups to the field of battle to stir things up a bit. To win, your team will need to be the first to capture 10 flags.

#4636799 World of Warcraft Arena: World Champions Crowned at BlizzCon 2017!

Posted by Vanguards on 21 November 2017 - 01:20 AM in News

World of Warcraft Arena: World Champions Crowned at BlizzCon 2017!

 

 

Official Blizzard Quote:

HOW CHAMPIONS ARE MADE

In the opening week, ten teams descended on Anaheim in the run-up to the finals, with two teams eliminated on day one.

 

Panda Global took down Rockets Eclipse with relative ease, to be met by defending world champions Method: Triforce. Panda Global were on fire, with the fever-pitch energy of the crowd fanning the flames. They beat the champions 3-1 in the semi-final to win their place in the final.

 

EU VS NA

Across the bracket, the top-seeded North America team—Method Synergy—faced Europe’s second seeded team, ABC. ABC’s tried and tested formula of Alec on Mage and Niksi on Rogue, seen the previous year, worked like a charm taking down NA’s #1 team 3-2.

 

ABC EASY AS 123…4

The finals in 2017 were once again NA vs EU. The comeback kids on Panda Global looked a little shaky and struggled to hold form, testing the limits of their passionate fans’ patience and creating a tense, exciting atmosphere throughout the arena. Sensing victory, ABC took full control; beating Panda Global in a nail-biting set of games 4-0—earning them their rightful place in World of Warcraft Arena history.

 

CONGRATULATIONS TO ABC: WORLD CHAMPIONS!
