Not One but TWO Global StarCraft 2 Tournaments at BlizzCon This Year
Expect another big yearly round of ass-kicking going on at BlizzCon this year — Blizzard has announced two global StarCraft 2 tournaments to take place at the two-day convention, slated for Oct. 21-22 in Anaheim, Calif.
The 2011 Global Battle.net Invitational and the 2011 Global StarCraft 2 League Finals will both take place at the conference and will be live-streamed at www.blizzcon.com. You’ll need a Battle.net account. Hope that’s not a deal breaker.
Blizzard runs a number of tournaments and events at the conference, including some for World of WarCraft’s arena and Diablo. Last year, it also gave players a chance to try out several StarCraft 2 custom maps the studio was working on, so this year, who knows. Probably some Diablo III. Maybe some StarCraft 2:
Brood War Heart of the Swarm too. Blizzard hasn’t announced anything more yet, but it wouldn’t be too surprising to see some on-site competitive play for some of its other titles.
