WCS Season 2 Schedule

WCS Season 2 Schedule

World Championship Series (WCS) Season 2 is ramping up and soon we will have StarCraft II players in WCS Europe, Korea and America fighting to the top in Premier and Challenger League. We want to make sure everyone has a chance to watch their favorite players go head-to-head or pick up the gauntlet to compete themselves.

We've broken down all the details by WCS Region below. Live streams and information on broadcast times can always be found at

WCS America

Premier League - WCS America Season 1 Challenger is still underway, so no information on groups yet. We will have a special edition of WCS Today to announce Season 2 Ro32 groups, so subscribe to the WCS StarCraft YouTube.

Challenger League and Qualifiers - For Season 2, the number of WCS America qualifiers is expanding dramatically. There will be four 512-player, single-elimination tournaments held, with live shoutcasting from Blizzard headquarters in Irvine, California. These qualifiers will be operated by Blizzard Entertainment in collaboration with the Electronic Sports League and on their platform.
