Asia-Pacific Enters the Arena

Asia-Pacific Enters the Arena

While the Arena World Championships (AWC) are taking a break in North America and Europe before their LAN finals, it’s time for Asia-Pacific to get in on the action.

AWC Korea, AWC Australia/New Zealand, and AWC Taiwan are kicking off soon, all adjusted from last year to fall in line with the points-based online cups of North America and Europe. These three tournaments will culminate in a live, cross-regional LAN finals in South Korea, which will take place September 28-29. There, the top three point-earning teams from ANZ, the top three point-earning teams from South Korea, and the top two point-earning teams from Taiwan will battle it out for a $36,000 prize pool, the title of APAC champions, and a spot at the AWC Global Finals.

Signups for ANZ are open now, while signups for Korea and Taiwan open soon. We can’t wait for our Asia-Pacific friends to join the fray! Follow us on Twitter to stay up to date with all things World of Warcraft.
