BLIZZCON® 2011 TO FEATURE WORLD-CLASS PROFESSIONAL ESPORTS COMPETITION

July 12, 2011 -- Blizzard Entertainment announced today that the 2011 Global Battle.net® Invitational and the 2011 GSL (Global StarCraft® II League) October Final will both be held at BlizzCon® 2011. The action will be live at BlizzCon and presented for free over the Internet at www.blizzcon.com. A free Battle.net account will be required for access to the Internet stream. Sign up for an account at www.battle.net. BlizzCon, which takes place at the Anaheim Convention Center in California from October 21 to 22, is a celebration of Blizzard Entertainment’s Warcraft®, StarCraft®, and Diablo® universes as well as the community of players that has grown around them. Tickets to attend BlizzCon are sold out, but virtual tickets, which provide comprehensive live coverage of the event, will be available for $39.99 USD at www.blizzcon.com.

“Between the Global Battle.net Invitational and the GSL October Final, two of the biggest eSports events of the year will be taking place at BlizzCon 2011,” said Mike Morhaime, CEO and cofounder of Blizzard Entertainment. “We’re looking forward to witnessing the high level of competition between the pro gamers participating in these events alongside our attendees at BlizzCon and the viewers at home.” The Global Battle.net Invitational is one of the top attractions at BlizzCon, featuring top-ranked pro players who have been invited to participate from across the world. This year, players will compete in StarCraft® II: Wings of Liberty™ and World of Warcraft®: Cataclysm™. The GSL is one of the world’s most-watched eSports competitions. Since its inception in 2010, millions of viewers have watched GSL broadcasts featuring intense matches between highly skilled professional players. These world-class competitors make a living through sponsorships and by battling it out for cash prizes in prestigious tournaments. The GSL October Final match is expected to bring much excitement to both domestic and overseas viewers as it will be the first GSL tournament final to take place outside of Korea. Between the Battle.net Invitational and the GSL October Final, a total prize pool of nearly $300,000 USD will be up for grabs at BlizzCon 2011.

I'm getting a lot of PMs about this and figure I should just address it publicly rather than each PM.

We are still planning to reset access,  unfortunately with the Feat of Strength not being on BNet for Season 9 titles yet, and with the titles being displayed improperly for a while on player pages we have not been able to get data from S9 just yet. We're working on it, but it's a little more complicated last season. Once we are able to add gladiator titles (one way or another...) we'll reset access for all players who do not have a title.

Also, we are also almost certainly going to be raising the rating required for access after the reset.

Thanks guys and have a good weekend. Back to Top
