New York: Day 1 - the first stage!
We've arrived in New York and everything's set up and ready to go. With the players preparing for their matches, it's almost time for the event to start!

The World's Best Gamers have gathered at New York Comic Con and will clash for a share of the $25,000 prize pool and the WCS points that, in some cases, might just gain a player a spot at BlizzCon in early November.

 

With Stage 1 of the tournament kicking off today, October 10th, 16 players will be jumping straight into the fray to fight for the four slots in the main tournament - all four players that manage to grab one of the slots will not only secure themselves a spot in the Group Stage, but also some prize money and WCS points.

 

 

You can watch the streams live on ESL TV and MLG.

 

More information on the schedule, brackets and groups can be found on the event page.
