2015 WCS Global Finals
The 2015 WCS Global Finals are the conclusion of the 2015 StarCraft II World Championship Series. Sixteen players, after qualifying by earning WCS points throughout 2015 in official WCS tournaments and in a multitude of non-WCS events, compete for the most prestigious trophy in 2015. Like the year before, the Round of 16 is played at ESL's studio in Burbank, CA (on November 1). The remainder of the bracket is played in Anaheim, CA at BlizzCon 2015 on November 6-7.
