The World Championship Series is heating up. Most of the Nationals have concluded; only Korea rages on. The North American finals will be taking place very soon, and the European finals will be held the following month. Next up: WCS Asia, featuring 32 of the top StarCraft II players from China, Taiwan, Singapore, Southeast Asia, and South Korea competing for the honor of representing their nation at the Battle.net World Championships in November.
Blizzard Entertainment is partnering with NetEase to host the StarCraft II WCS Asia Continentals on October 13 and 14, in Shanghai, China. The event will be held at the Baosteel Stage (pictured below) at the World Expo site, and will feature production from Gamefy TV.
