Upcoming Changes to WCS 2015


  • Upcoming Changes to WCS 2015


    WCS 2014 has been one of the most exciting competitions yet! As we near the finale of Season 3 on the road to the StarCraft II Global Finals, Blizzard would like to share a few details covering major changes for WCS 2015 that will affect the players and the WCS competition. Blizzard will share more information about 2015 as soon as possible. But they wanted to share the following changes immediately so players can start planning for next year.

    WCS Reset

    For WCS 2015 we will be resetting all points, Challenger, and Premier slots. All players will be required to participate in their respective regional qualifiers to be a part of WCS 2015 Season 1.

    Redistribution of the Ladder Wildcard Qualifier Slots

    With the success of the regional qualifier system, we have decided to remove the 2014 Ladder Wildcard slots for WCS America and WCS Europe. The regional slot distribution will be released at a later date. All players in each league must adhere to the residency requirements.

    Residency Requirements

    Starting in 2015, all WCS players must be legal residents of the region they choose to play in. This means that players must obtain necessary visas if they decide to reside and play in non-native regions.
