Scarlett, Bomber, Trap, DongRaeGu, Cure and Polt will all vie for the $50,000 Grand Final prize that Red Bull Battlegrounds DC provides. Additionally, based on the final rankings competitors will earn World Championship of StarCraft (WCS) points. The more points earned, the better chance they will have to qualify for the WCS Global Finals, with the ultimate goal of being the 2014 Global StarCraft II Champion.
