The World Cyber Games has officially announced their list of game titles for 2011 and World of Warcraft: Cataclysm has been added this year!

This is exciting news for Arena enthusiasts, this is a chance for the top arena players from every country to be apart of the Olympiad of Gaming.

No further details have been announced, but if the format is similar to StarCraft or League of Legends, a qualifier will be held in at least 16 countries during the Spring, Summer, and Fall. Afterwards, the champions from each country will receive an all-expense-paid trip to the finals where they will compete for glory and an increased prize pot of tens of thousands of dollars.

For more details on the qualifiers in your country, visit the WCG website then navigate to your national page. Each national qualifier will be independently managed by an organizer located in that country, so details for each country qualifier will be announced separately throughout the Spring.

More info about the World Cyber Games:

The WCG began in 2000 and runs an Olympic-style qualifying system, this means teams from each country are only allowed to roster players from the same nation. (Teams like Team EG will have to change for this event, as Azael is Canadian and Tenderloin/Woundman are American).

This does not mean you absolutely need to break up your team for Blizzard's Tournament Realm or future MLG events, but consider reaching out to your fellow countrymen and build relationships with players closer to home.

This might disappoint some teams that run with players with multi-national backgrounds, but do not view this event that way. Compare this to the Olympics or FIFA's World Cup, it's one of the highest honors being able to represent your country in such a manner and especially in one of the World's most popular games!

As expected, some countries will have harder qualifiers than others (and expect America's qualifier to be probably the hardest). But, expect excitement coming from your fellow countrymen in-game that might not even play Arena to be rooting for you!

Good luck to all and expect more announcements in the near future!

It's been almost 3 weeks since we've relaunched the site. Unfortunately, it hasn't been as smooth as any of us would have liked. But, we're continuing to roll on and handle the issues that have come up. Currently, we're working on resolving an issue with updating info from battle.net and we hope to have those systems back up and running soon.

Forum Theme
One issue that you guys were vocal about in the beginning was the redesign and color theme. We have tweaked some colors and lightened some of the contrasting elements already, but we want to know what you think of it now after the shock has worn off. I've put up a simple poll on the forum thread, yes or no. If you have an opinion either way, please vote. If you have any constructive comments please post them.

As always we want to make sure we're bringing you the best site we can. Thanks.
