What is the StarCraft® II WCS?

The StarCraft® II World Championship Series is a year-long event allowing players from around the world to showcase their skills by competing in front of a global audience.

How does it work?

Players seek to accumulate WCS Points in one of two separate standings (tournament groups): WCS Korea or WCS Circuit. Together, these systems feature a total prize pool of over $2 million, and, as players race to accumulate WCS Points, their progress is tracked in the WCS Standings. At the end of each year, the top eight players from each system compete at the WCS Global Finals for a prize pool of over $500,000.

What’s the difference between WCS Korea and WCS Circuit?

WCS Korea features the world’s most prestigious StarCraft® II tournament, the Global StarCraft League (GSL). The WCS Circuit invites players from around the globe to compete in regional Challengers to qualify for major tournaments at stops in several cities with passionate communities.
