ESL Pro Tour - Warcraft III Updates for Winter Season

Our final season online for the DreamHack Warcraft 3 Open is nearly among us, and starting November 14th with Open Qualifiers we will know who will join us in Katowice to crown a world champion.

Point Distribution

To continue with what we began in our DreamHack Warcraft 3 Open: Fall season with an increased point value, we are adding in an additional 25% point allocation to the Winter season. This aims to keep competitive balance fair among players regardless of when they joined our season and keep the playing field leve.

You can find the updated amounts in our rulebook now.

Player Invites

For the European and Asian divisions, we have invited the top 8 form last season to come back and compete with us, while in the America division this is the top 4.
