WCS Austin qualifier this week

04-04-2017 VanCaspel

The road to BlizzCon 2017 continues! The second event in which European players can earn points for Blizzard’s World Championship Series is coming up: DreamHack Austin. The online qualifiers for that event are currently being held, and today, tomorrow and Friday (at 19h CEST each time) the European qualifier will be played. Today and tomorrow participants will have to struggle through single-elimination brackets to reach the top 4. Those eight players will be seeded into Friday’s double-elimination bracket from which the top-4 qualifies for DreamHack Austin. They’ll get their flights, accommodation and entrance to the event paid for, and there’s even a prize pool for the qualifier (both cash ánd WCS points).

If there ever was honey to attract e-sports bees, this is it. Expect awesome matches this week, and lets hope we’ll see a strong Dutch presence!
