The next Red Bull Battle Grounds is nearly upon us, and there’s still opportunity for anyone to join the competition. From November 23 - 24, eight of the world’s top StarCraft II competitors will travel to the Hammerstein Ballroom in New York City to compete for a share in the $50,000 prize pool and the title of Battle Grounds Champion.
The first four seats have already been filled by Jang ‘MC’ Min Chul, Jo ‘Golden’ Myeong Hwan, Choi ‘Bomber’ Ji Sung, and Jens ‘Snute’ Aasgaard based on their performance at previous Red Bull events. The remaining competitor slots could very well be filled by players like you, as Red Bull just announced details for its North America Online Qualifiers.
The North America Qualifiers are open only to residents of Canada and the United States of America, and participants must be ranked in Diamond league or higher on the StarCraft II: Heart of the Swarm 1v1 multiplayer ladder.
Qualifier registration opened at 3:00 p.m. PDT on Friday, October 18 and continues through October 27, or until each of the four qualifier brackets reach 256 players.
