Blizzard releases World of Warcraft 2020 event lineup
The schedule for the popular eSports video game is now set
Two eSports arenas will be revamped for upcoming World of Warcraft (WoW) 2020 events, and Blizzard games just announced its future plans. Arena World Championship (AWC) & Mythic Dungeon International (MDI) 2020 will be the locations to welcome these WoW events. After a new partnership with DreamHack as the event organizer for the future, it makes sense that a revamp of these locations is on the agenda. The arenas will be retooled, and the intention is to bring in more players and also make games more accessible.
The AWC has been operating for thirteen years, which seems to make this the right time to make changes and also to host one final season to close out Battle for Azeroth. Next spring, the registration and qualification cups periods will be open, and all eight online Arena cups will have a prize pool of $10,000 granted, plus some AWC Points.
The events welcome anyone that wants to try their skills up against the best to gain recognition and glory, besides, of course, the cash prizes. The participants will be organized in any of the four North American and European cups, in which the teams with the highest scores will be getting a pass to compete in the AWC Battle for Azeroth Finals. These finals will welcome the best eight teams in the world, battling for the largest pool ever reported in AWC, $500,000.
On the other side, MDI comes back for the second year in a row and this time, it brings a new dungeon that will be a true challenge for the competitors and function as a warm-up to put them through their paces. Some changes to come as the new two divisions. The European and Asian (EU/Asia) division includes players from Europe, the Middle East, Africa, Korea, China, and Taiwan, and The Americas (AMER) division includes players from the Americas, Australia and New Zealand. The finals will come with a $300,000 prize pool for the winners.
