General info[edit]

The tournament was the overall finale to crown the champion of the WGTour season XV and sponsored by QPad Steelseries. With the introduction of patch 1.15 Blizzard added the feature of official ladders; WGTour.com was used as substitute for the outdated and bugged Battle.net ladder. Unlike it's predecessor WGTour used a their own website with a fast challenging system for the ladder. The system itself was hosted on the European server. Due to patch updates and other circumstances the ladder wasn't exactly perfect but served the purpose and was overall a way better solution.

At the end of February the ladder season was over and the top 16 players were automatically qualified for the finals. Another four tournaments were hosted from which the top four players could also qualify for the finals. It was a double-elimination bracket with Bo3 matches in the winner's grid and Bo1 knock-out in the lower brackets. The player coming from the winner bracket received a one-win advantage in the grand finals.

Prizes[edit]

  • 2nd Place: $50 + Steelseries S&S Pad
