Guild Wars 2 news » Do You Have What It Takes to Win the Next World Tournament Series Cha...
The next World Tournament Series champions will be crowned at gamescom in Cologne, Germany, on August 8, 2015. If glory isn’t enough of a reason for you to compete, how does an opportunity to represent your region on an international stage and play for $50,000 USD sound? Read on below to find out how you and your team can sign up for a chance to compete!
The Road to Cologne
Teams will earn an invitation to compete in the World Tournament Series by placing highly in the weekly North America and Europe ESL Go4GuildWars2 Cups during the month of May. These are weekly tournament events hosted in both North America and Europe featuring cash prizes for top teams, gem rewards for high performers, and even a Mini Llama for teams that manage to win a single round.
The eight highest ranking teams at the end of the month of May (determined by total Go4 points) will be invited to the World Tournament Series Invitational Qualifier, the gateway to the World Tournament Series Championship. The invitational qualifier will then take place on June 6, 2015. The top North American team and the top two European teams from the invitational qualifier will each earn a ticket to the World Tournament Series Championship finals in Cologne.
For now, stay focused on the important things—assemble your teams, begin practicing, and aim for a top-eight slot in the ESL Go4GuildWars2 Cups in May! There are five total cups next month, so you have plenty of time to gather your allies and venture into battle. Click on the appropriate region below to sign up for next month’s first cup:
