Chronology

Overview[edit]

The second Warcraft III season of the Professional Gaming League (PGL) will take place from January 20 to January 27 in Beijing, China. Ten world famous invitees and six Chinese that qualified the hard way will gather to fight for a total prize purse of €13,000.

The tournament system of the first season was very entertaining and exciting for the audience, but it was a huge challenge to players' physical strength as they had to go through many intensive games each day. In this time, the system was adjusted to put less strain on the participants.

Prize Pool[edit]

$19,410 USD are spread among the players as seen below:
