New Rules
Over the past year we have been bringing you the live streams as well as discussion for all the tournaments building up for this one. Some things have changed for this one. First, it will be the first level 80 tournament. We are also extremely excited to see are how some new rules effect tournament play. ESL has banned the use of any RNG skills, such as Impact, Blackout and T.N.T. They have also removed the new arena maps from play. Finally, they have removed the Death Knight spell Raise Ally.

The tournament is starting now, best of luck to everyone involved. We will try and pull stats to give everyone once the tournament has progressed a few weeks.

Here is the official word from Blizzard.

Official Blizzard Quote:

The 2009 World of Warcraft Arena Tournament has now officially begun. Players from around the world can compete on our special tournament realms for cash prizes totaling over $200,000.

These realms have been outfitted with level 80 character templates and the latest epic gear from Wrath of the Lich King. As an added bonus, we have included exclusive rewards that players can earn by participating in the tournament, including an Armored Murloc in-game pet. Top teams will also contend for a chance to achieve the “Vanquisher” title for their live characters.
