Two weeks ago, Blizzard removed one of the four WCS Circuit stops and replaced it with WCS Winter, an online tournament split between two player regions: WCS Winter Americas (including Latin America, Taiwan, ANZ/SEA, and China), and WCS Winter Europe. Each WCS Winter region will have a prize pool of $60,000 and only 32 players may qualify for each region. The tournament will take place over a ten-week period until it culminates in a live-studio broadcast where the top 6 of each region will duke it out.
That’s what they told us anyway, which was nice, but they didn’t release the schedule so no one really knew when it was happening – now they have.
The first WCS Winter Europe Ro32 Group A is scheduled to happen on January 31, 2019 at 10:00 am EST and you can watch the stream here. Four hours later, the first WCS Winter Americas Ro32 Group A will begin at 2:00 pm EST.
