We’re pleased to announce our partnership with the Australian Cyber League to host the WCS Australia National and Oceania Finals the weekend of August 11th and 12th at the Australian Technology Park in Sydney.
Featuring the top 18 players from Australia and New Zealand, the weekend will be the largest eSports event Blizzard has hosted in the region with a combined prize pool of $25,000 USD. Casting the matches will include top IPL casters HD and PainUser, GSL legends Artosis and Tasteless, and our very own local prodigy Maynarde.
Saturday kicks off the completion of the Australia Nationals which will crown this year’s best Australian StarCraft II players. Their chance to celebrate will be short lived though as the top six Australian players will clash with the top two New Zealand players in the Oceania Finals on Sunday. The two finalists coming out of the event will then go on to represent the region in the Battle.net World Championship in China later this year.
Entry is free, so grab a ticket and come on down to show your support for local StarCraft II eSports and cheer your favorite local players on!
