Five days to qualify for the North American Arena Tournament

Arena PvP
The deadline is fast approaching for those PvP enthusiasts who wish to take part in the North American Arena Tournament. This competition will determine who goes on to represent North America in the WoW Arena World Championship at BlizzCon 2014. To qualify, teams must have an individual 3v3 Arena rating of at least 2,500 on the live realms by 10:00 am PDT on Monday, August 25th. The tournament itself will use a double-elimination format to determine the top three teams from North America, who will then move on to the competition at BlizzCon. The total purse for this year's event is an impressive US$250,000, with a winners' share of US$120,000. Not bad at all! Good luck to all those who are working to qualify!

BlizzCon Arena Tournament teams and casters announced

Blizzcon Arena Tournament teams and casters announced
BlizzCon will have a plethora of tournaments this year, ranging from Starcraft II, through the internal games of the recently-announced Heroes of the Storm, to a live raid, and a Hearthstone tournament with some of the big-name streamers. But the one that really excites me, the one that I will be sneaking in to watch whenever I have a spare moment, is the WoW Arena Invitational.

It's a rare chance for some of the world's best players to get together and show the crowd their skills. The action, in 3v3 arenas, will be fast-paced and frantic at times, but it's definitely worth taking a look. Even if you don't PvP, there will be a team of casters ranging from old hands like VHell and Azael to newer recruits such as Hoodrych and Lore, to guide you through the action.

And today the teams were announced, too. I'm not going to reproduce the list here, but head over to the official blog and check them out. There's a prevalence of warlocks and shaman, which is notable, and some big names are coming along. Two teams each attend from NA, EU and China, and Korea and Taiwan field one team per territory. The blog gives a bit more detail on each team, their history, their players and such. Who are you rooting for?
