One of the most anticipated World Championship Series (WCS) events, the Korea National Finals, are quickly approaching. The offline preliminaries for the event will be held on July 22 and 23, and will be broadcast by GOMTV. This event is going to be special, though: eSports superstars from all leagues, including KeSPA’s ProLeague, Ongamenet’s Starleague, and GomTV’s GSL and GSTL will take part in the WCS for the first time to determine who will represent Korea at the Battle.net World Championship in Shanghai later this year. Who knows what matchups we could see? Flash vs Mvp? Jaedong vs DongRaeGu? You won’t want to miss this one!
The event will be held on July 22 and 23 at the Shindorim e-Stadium in Seoul, Korea. Players will be divided into brackets and the winner of each individual bracket will advance to the main event, just like the Code A preliminaries for GSL. The GOMTV “Ready Action!” team will be on-site to cover the event and cast selected matches in Korean, while Wolf and Khaldor of GSL will provide English commentary at http://www.gomtv.net. Yearly GSL ticket holders will have access to the HQ stream, while a free standard quality broadcast will be available for all users. At a later date, HQ VODs will be uploaded to GOMTV’s official YouTube channel.
