The time and date announcements for the BattleNet World Championship can be a bit tricky, as dates and times differ around the globe. In order to ensure that you don't miss it I put together a list. Note that in the US the tournament starts on the 16th while in China and Europe it's already the 17th.


First BattleNet World Championship match starts

Los Angeles (U.S.A. - California), Friday, November 16, 2012 at 7:00:00 PM
New York (U.S.A. - New York), Friday, November 16, 2012 at 10:00:00 PM
Rio de Janeiro (Brazil - Rio de Janeiro), Saturday, November 17, 2012 at 1:00:00 AM
London (GMT) Saturday, November 17, 2012 at 03:00:00 AM
Berlin (Germany) Saturday, November 17, 2012 at 4:00:00 AM
Moscow (Russia) Saturday, November 17, 2012 at 7:00:00 AM
Shanghai (China) - Saturday, November 17, 2012 at 11:00:00 AM

Reckful is literally any Asian woman's dream: tall, white, long brown hair, undeniably charming face. Reckful is getting laaaaayed.

Haha, at least the chat is somewhat entertaining.
"At this rate 5.1 will be released before the tournament is over and all mage teams will start doing bad"

production value feels less than amateur, not going to bother watching at this rate

i guess this is what you can expect when you outsource an entire tournament to china

The matches are delayed for some reasons. There are things we cannot influence and neither Blizzard can. The Chinese government blocks internet pretty regulary and so I'm happy you can see the streams currently. I talked to Blizzard and hopefully they'll make vods available.

Hard to say why  the streams are not entertaining, it's very entertaining here.

It really does sound like matches are being played with no commentating.  Kind of like Tennis players warming up, where they don't commentate yet, but plenty of grunting

"China is blocking the WoW stream from the venue, but not the SC2 one"

I am sitting here and hearing WoW spell noises but no video feed? What is going on? Why is there no update beyond, "there are things we can't control." What can't you control, how long will it be?
