blizz has been open i think since the late 90's with wow being run for like 5+ years now, and they host a sc+wow tourn with only 500k TOTAL (which mean it's not 1 winner)
LoL gave 1m to 1st place and i think 250k to 2nd and so forth until 4th place.
i didnt write this to crap on blizz...i just thought it was kind of degrading towards their company considering they were outdone by a new one.
not to mention WoW is b2p+sub (also SC is b2p) and LoL is f2p.
just goes to show you who really cares about what :D
