Blizzard will hold the Battle.net World Championship in Shanghai this weekend, bringing together the top players worldwide in Starcraft 2 and World of Warcraft for a final shot at becoming an international champion.
The event includes finale tournament rounds for both the 2012 StarCraft 2 World Championship and World of Warcraft Arena Global Finals.
Tickets to the event at the Shanghai Expo Mart are sold out, with 10,000 in attendance. For everyone else, Blizzard will provide a free six-channel high-definition livestream of the event through Battle.net. The first day's festivities will begin on Friday, Nov. 16 at 9:00 p.m. ET, and will resume the following day at 8:30 p.m. ET.
The Battle.net championship event will also feature a live raid in World of Warcraft as well as a Dungeon Challenge featuring Stars and Supreme Quicksand, China's two top guilds. Both events will be included in the Battle.net livestream on Friday at 10:30 p.m. ET.
