Starcraft 2 news » WCS Jönköping Survival Guide
The next WCS Circuit event is just days away, as StarCraft II returns to DreamHack Summer in Jönköping, Sweden!
A total of 16 rising stars from around the world earned their spots at the tournament through a series of highly-competitive WCS Challenger events. Now it's time for them to show off their skills at WCS Jönköping, where they’ll be joined by 64 competitors who’ve fought their way into contention via open qualifiers.
These 64 open qualifier players will kick off the event by battling it out over two group stages until only 16 competitors remain. They’ll then face off against the WCS Challenger champions in a round of 32 group stage. The best players will progress to the playoff phase, where they’ll compete for a share of the $100,000 USD prize pool and the title of WCS Champion! You won’t want to miss a moment, so check out our survival guide for more information and details on how to follow along.
