We want to find the best players out there, and not only will you get bragging rights for the rest of the year but the winner receives an awesome $3,000 cash prize!
During the next 8 months, StarCraft 2 players will have the opportunity to compete for cash and product prizes through regional qualifiers. If you are not a party within that region, there is nothing to worry about. All you need is an account on that specific server to register.
