Yes you read it right, one of the earliest video game tournament is back with a vengeance and is now looking for players who will be competing in their various tournaments, the catch is the deadline for team applications is up to tom.
The World Cyber Games has announced that it’s closing it’s player registration tomorrow for these titles which are practically the full game roster for WCG 2019:
Honor of Kings (china only)
Warcraft III: The Frozen Throne
Yes, you read that right, these are the titles that players will be competing at in WCG 2019. It seems like the initial stages of the tournament are mostly online competitions on the national and regional levels. With tournaments being organized under the Battlefy with coordination and support relegated to their Discord server. The WCG 2019 finals though is going to happen on July 18-21, 2019 at Xi’an China.
If you’re wondering (like me), on what happened to the brand ever since they closed the brand I wen to their wiki page to check out how things ended up like this today.
In March 2017, the former Samsung owned WCG Trademark was transferred to Korean Publisher Smilegate. Plans to develop the WCG “into the world’s top digital entertainment festival in the future”.World Cyber Games 2018 should have been hosted in Bangkok in April 26–29, 2018, but was cancelled subsequently. World Cyber Games 2019 will be hosted in Xi’an, China in July 18–21, 2019.
