BlizzCon’s eSports schedule for 2015

OW_2

It’s just about that time of the year when Blizzard fans and the pros who play these iconic titles meet for a weekend of intense gaming, music, activities, and whatever else may happen between November 6th-8th. Blizzard has just released their eSports schedule for this year’s finals, held as always, during their convention in Anaheim, California.

This year’s prize pool for the finals has reached $ 1,250,000 in total split between titles while the tournaments and events leading up to the main stage total for an impressive $ 3,450,000 without participation in world finals. Prepare to see the pros battle it out in Starcraft II, World of Warcraft (Arena), Heroes of The Storm, and my personal favorite, Hearthstone.
