The march down the road to BlizzCon 2015 is has commenced! Arena teams across North America can now sign up for the online North American Qualifiers and fight to become one of six teams that will continue on to the North American Regionals later this year. There, they’ll battle against one team from Latin America and one team from Australia & New Zealand to find out who’s heading to the World Championships at BlizzCon 2015.
  

Schedule
Teams will have the opportunity to compete for their place at the NA Regionals over three online cups, produced in partnership with GCDTV:


Cup 3: August 11 – August 15 (three teams qualify)


Tuesday, August 11 5:00PM EST - 2:00AM EST - Round 1 (Not Streamed)

Wednesday, August 12 5:00PM EST - 2:00AM EST- Round 1 (Not Streamed)

Thursday, August 13 5:00PM EST - 2:00AM EST- Round 2 (Not Streamed)

Friday, August 14 5:00PM EST - 2:00AM EST- Round 2 (Not Streamed)

Saturday, August 15 2:00PM PDT - Round of 8 (Top 8 Teams)

Live broadcast begins Saturday August 15th at 2:00PM PDT on Twitch.tv/WoW


These cups will use a single-elimination tournament structure. Matches will be best of 3 up until the semifinals, which will be best of 5, with a best of 7 series at the finals. Because of this, we highly encourage teams to make use of the 4-player team roster we’re allowing in this year’s tournament, to allow for some extra flexibility in their team’s class composition.
Brackets will be seeded according to the average Arena Ladder rating (CR) of the three highest-rated players on the team’s roster. Teams who qualify for the North American Regionals will not be allowed to compete again in the online NA Qualifiers. Teams who do not qualify may continue to compete in any remaining cups.
We’ll have more details on these qualifier cups—including when you’ll be able to watch the action live onTwitch.tv/WoW—in the coming weeks.

Rules

Below, you’ll find links to everything you need to know to compete, including official rules and sign-up instructions, so please read everything carefully before you get started.
One notable addition this year is the Macro and Script Whitelist. To help ensure that everyone is on an even playing field, we’ve assembled a list of macros and scripts that we’ve determined are acceptable for players to use in our in-person events, starting with the Regionals through BlizzCon itself. Anything not listed will be disallowed from use during these live competitions.
This restriction will not be in place for the online NA Qualifier cups, but we wanted to present it now to make sure teams have time to prepare. If you feel a vital macro or script has been omitted from the list.

  

Eligibility

In order for an Arena team to be able to compete in the North American Qualifiers, they must fulfill some basic eligibility requirements:

  • All players on the team’s roster must have an Arena Ladder rating (CR) of at least 2000 by July 9th, 2015 to be eligible for Online Cup 1.
    • This rating requirement will be updated for subsequent cups.
  • All players must have appropriate residency:
  • See below for complete details on proof of residency verification

Note: Although players from Australia/New Zealand and some Latin American countries are eligible to compete in the North American Arena Qualifiers, we encourage those players to consider competing at their respective regional qualifiers instead. Players who compete in the Australia & New Zealand or Latin American qualifiers will not be eligible to compete in the NA qualifiers, and vice versa.
Information on qualifiers for those regions can be found here:
