World of Warcraft Arena esports had a pretty big year in 2017 when the ANZ region saw three teams make it to the APAC finals and then a team from Australia, Team Rock, making it all the way to the global stage at BlizzCon. In 2018 Australia will play host to the APAC regional finals.

Where three Korean teams and two Taiwanese join three Australian and New Zealand teams to compete for the impressive prize pool of $50,000 USD. Plus, the chance to represent the region at BlizzCon later in the year.

2018 also marks the beefing up of World of Warcraft Arena competition in the region with a new setup.

Introduction of Multiple Qualifiers and Points

Starting in May, we’ll be holding four qualifying cups spread over two months instead of a single qualifying event. Each cup will follow the same point structure as the North American cups. After all cups are completed, the three teams from Australia and New Zealand with the most points will qualify for the Asia-Pacific Regional Finals.
