StarsWar VII: China Qualifiers Coverage by WCReplays.com

Quick Links

General Information

The StarsWar events have always been something of a major in the Warcraft III eSports catalogue, but now -- in a time where most other events have folded -- it's bigger than ever. What you're looking at here are the Chinese qualifiers. Further down the line we'll also be seeing Euro/American/Korean qualifiers, too, but details on those are yet to be released. Unfortunately coverage on this one is relatively sparse. There's no English livestream, video-on-demand, nor replays, but the organisers have stated that replays may be released a fortnight after each game airs. Oh, and if watching Warcraft in Chinese is your thing (hell, it's better than no Warcraft, right?!), then you can watch the Chinese live feed when the games air. WCReplays are currently attempting to communicate with the tournament's organisers in an attempt to improve English coverage. We'll keep you posted if we hear back.

Tournament Structure

So here's the skinny: 28 players, divided in to 7 groups of 4 (A-G). The 4 players in each group will battle it out in a best-of-one double elimination bracket. Those who finish top in the winner and loser brackets will progress forward to the next stage which the tournament organisers have brutally named the "knockout phase." If you're keeping up with the math, that means 14 go through. However, there's also an RTS bracket. This bracket is comprised of 8 players who have claimed victory in the various "Road to Stars War" cups hosted by the event organisers. These folks get their own bracket and -- like with the others -- will battle it out double elimination style where only two of the eight will progress. That means a grand total of 16 Chinamen will duel it out in the knockout phase. Heavy stuff!
