Gameday

Greetings Players! Below outlines important information that all Players must be aware of.

Structure & Game Times

2015 comes with it new league requirements and a new Tournament bracket and reporting system.

Road to Premier

WCS Season 3: Oceania/Southeast Asia Qualifiers

Stage 1 of the WCS Season 3: Oceania/Southeast Asia Qualifiers will start at 12PM AEST on Saturday 4th July and not end until the competition of the bracket in its entirety or 10:30PM AEST, whichever occurs first. In the case the Stage 1 bracket was not completed in its entirety, an official will speak with the remaining players to let them know what time they must be online on Sunday 5th July to complete the remaining bracket.

This bracket will consist of an unlimited amount of players who meet eligibility requirements such as residency and StarCraft II league.

Stage 2 of the WCS Season 3: Oceania/Southeast Asia Qualifiers will start at 12PM AEST on Sunday 5th July and not end until the completion of the bracket in its entirety.

This bracket will consist of 4 pre-invited and 12 qualified players. The 4 pre-invited players in no particular order are:

WCS Season 3: Oceania/Southeast Asia Challenger

This Tournament will start at 1PM AEST on Sunday 12th July and not end until the competition of the bracket.

This bracket will consist of 2 qualified players and the two WCS Season 2 Premier players (NXZ and Iaguz).

In all stages of competition once you have completed a round in the Tournament you are to continue straight into the next round after communicating the results of the completed set to Tournament officials. You are only allowed a short 5 - 10 minute break in-between. If you are waiting on the result of a previous match up before you can play your next series then you must simply wait patiently. You must then be ready to play as soon as your opposing Player is done with their previous series and now ready to play against you. Disappearing for long periods of time is not allowed and you could risk being disqualified if you are not ready to play your next match on time. Official discretion is final.

Battle.net and Contacting Tournament Officials

Tournament officials will be available to help and assist Players within Battle.net. Players must log into the South East Asia server (SEA) and join the group within Battle.net called "World Championship Series" for the duration of any official tournament. Within this group tournament officials will communicate with Players. You can locate official WCS admins by their clan tag [WCSS]. Admins take no responsibility for your disqualification if you are not in the official tournament group by the required time. For this reason we suggest joining the group prior to the date of the tournament and being online within the group 30 minutes prior to Tournament commencement.

In 2015 we will be utilising Battlefy which has all information regarding the event on one landing page. This can be found here.
