It will feature a 256 player Qualifying Tournament where the top eight players will earn a spot in the WCS America Season 1 Premier League.

Living up to the legacy of StarCraft: Brood War is an impossible task quite truthfully, and while the initial StarCraft IIWings of Liberty campaign has had its fair share of troubles, you cannot deny that the massive growth in eSports today can be accredited to its success.

Heart of the Swarm Beta Ends in March

StarCraft II: Heart of the Swarm is inching closer to release. And because of that, the public beta is shutting down, March 1st. That might sound unfair and even cruel, but the game's full release is going to land not even two weeks later. So I'm sure you can understand if this is little more than the official release process.
