Red Bul Battleground Detroit is now live! Watch above to catch all this weekend’s intense StarCraft II action, as competitors compete for the final qualifying spot ahead of the Red Bull Battle Grounds Grand Final in Washington, DC next month. You can check out all of the current qualifier winners below, including last year’s reigning champ and runner-up.
Played in an open tournament format, 128 competitors will be duking it out at Red Bull Battlegrounds Detroit today to survive pool play and advanced to the next levels of the tournament coming up on Saturday and Sunday. You can check out the current brackets and standings here, with notable StarCraft 2 players Walshy, Livibee, Polt and viOLet taking part of the action. Only one player can make it out alive (or, at least, with a ticket to Washington next month), so make sure you keep up to date to see who’s still in the hunt.
Plus, with links to the World Championship of StarCraft, WCS points will be awarded to the top players for outperforming their competition. The final points tally at the end of the current season will determine who competes in the WCS Finals at Blizzcon 2014 later this year. If it sounds confusing to you, don’t worry, as an excellent commenting and shoutcasting crew of Kevin “RotterdaM” van der kooi, Nathan “Nathanias” Fabrikant, Yoan “ToD” Merlo and Alex “Axeltoss” Rodriguez will be on hand to explain what’s happening on screen as best as possible for those at least a bit versed in StarCraft II.
Hope you enjoy Red Bull Battleground Detroit this weekend! We’ll be back tomorrow to post Saturday’s livestream, as well as update you with relevant information about the last tournament qualifier of the Battle Grounds season.
