Blizzard Reveals Its Plans for World of Warcraft Esports in 2019
  • Blizzard not too long ago detailed its plans for World of Warcraft esports in 2019. It really is bringing back two tournaments - the Arena World Championship (AWC) and the Mythic Dungeon International (MDI) - and launching some new in-game toys to assist fund prize pools, it said inside a blog post on Thursday.

    The Arena World Championship will return having a couple of "fun" twists, Blizzard mentioned. The North America and European regions will get wow gold two Arena seasons every single, with six cups per season. In the course of every single cup, teams will compete to get a $10,000 USD prize pool, an increase when compared with final year's AWC. Each finals event will see the prime four point-earners per season from each regions battle to get a $100,000 USD prize pool.

    The initial AWC cup begins Feb. 8, Blizzard mentioned. Signups began last week and end on Monday, Jan. 28 at 10 a.m. PDT.

    The Asia-Pacific, China, and Latin America regions may also run cups based on the AWC ruleset. Signups for all those commence later this year.

    Meanwhile, the Mythic Dungeon Invitational is no longer an invitational in 2019. It really is now open to any player having a Blizzard account in superior standing. Rebranded the Mythic Dungeon International, it is going to showcase the world's ideal dungeon-running teams and can be split into two regions: MDI East (China, Korea, Southeast Asia, Taiwan, and Australia/New Zealand) and MDI West (North America, Latin America, and Europe).

    Like the AWC, it can be broken into cups. Each and every cup for MDI East and MDI West will stream reside on Twitch each and every weekend across six weeks, Blizzard mentioned. Winners will share a $12,000 prize pool per cup and can acquire MDI points. At the finish in the season, the top teams from both regions will compete within a cross-regional LAN occasion for $100,000 USD.

    Blizzard is introducing two new in-game toys to assist fund all of those prize pools. They go on sale within the spring. The prize pools for the year's final AWC and MDI LAN events are going to buy wow items be announced later this year immediately after the sale.
