Chronology


The 2014 WCS Season 1 America was the first American event of the 2014 StarCraft II World Championship Series.

The tournament was initially produced by NASL from its studios in Rancho Cucamonga, CA. However due to the abrupt closure of NASL mid-season, the remaining portion of the tournament was taken over by ESL. The Premier League Round of 16 and Playoffs, originally to be held at the NASL Studios, was moved to ESL Studio One in Cologne, Germany to be run parallel with 2014 WCS Season 1 Europe. [1]
