About[edit]

The 2008 Electronic Sports World Cup took place in San Jose, California, USA, from August 25 to August 27 during the bigger NVISION 08 event, moving the tournament away from France for the first time. The disciplines announced were Counter-Strike (open and female), Warcraft III: The Frozen Throne, Trackmania Nations Forever, Defense of the Ancients and Quake 3.
