Three spots for Red Bull Battle Grounds in NYC and a special custom map will be determined.
It’s the battle before the big Battle. This weekend is chock full of StarCraft action that will determine who will move on to Red Bull Battle Grounds in New York City to join the roster that includes some of the best StarCraft players in the world, including MC, Bomber, Golden and Snute – winners of previous Red Bull events.
It all begins at 9 a.m. PST with the Red Bull TLMC Battle Grounds Qualifier, which invites hundreds of StarCraft players to a massive 512-person tournament – fighting on the top seven community maps created for the Red Bull TeamLiquid Map Contest. All rounds except for the finals will be broadcast all day Saturday. Check out the TeamLiquid events widget to catch the show live.
Next comes Super Sunday, as three of the eight coveted Battle Grounds slots will be up for grabs at Red Bull HQ in Santa Monica, California. The TLMC Qualifier Finals start at 10 a.m. PST, followed by the Global Online Qualifier Finals between Bong, Sora, HyuN, and Symbol. That will be followed by the Red Bull Battle Grounds North America Qualifier Finals – with the USA being matched up against Canda. We'll see Scarlett and HuK representing Canada and Vibe and QXC going for the USA.
The casting crew includes Ben "Mr.Bitter" Nichol and Kevin "Rotterdam" Van der Kooi, all broadcast live here at Red Bull eSports.
