StarCraft 2 Wild Card Qualifier this weekend

2 min read

SC2 Heart of the Swarm

Oh the things I could do with R35 000. I could buy all the new consoles coming out and maybe that GTX TITAN and possibly have some change to spare for a game or two. Too bad I don’t have a clue how to play StarCraft II: Heart of the Swarm. For those of you who do, you could stand a chance at winning some of that prize pool, which will be awarded to players at the StarCraft 2: Heart of the Swarm Invitational happening this March. All you have to do is enter the Wild Card Qualifier this weekend!

The qualifier will be hosted by Polarfluke for the Invitational hosted by Megarom and Internet Solutions. This won’t be some Mickey Mouse tournament either. The event will be held at The Forums 500 seater Auditorium at The Campus in Johannesburg where there will be a featured match between some StarCraft 2 celebrities. I’m sure you all know by now that Robert “PandaTank” Botha and Fnatic player Silviu “NightEnD” Lazar will be playing against each other that day.

    Man that trailer looks amazing. Say what you want of Blizzard, but they sure do know how to make dem cinematics look good

    Does anybody know whether heart of the swarm will release with a discount of Wings of Liberty?

    • Possible, but they like to cash in. I mean, they’re splitting SC2 (1 game) into 3 separate titles and asking full price for each of them. They could have simply called Heart of the Swarm, SC3. Let’s not even mention the insane amount of money that lemmings pay for that repetitive grind fest that is WoW.

        And let’s not forget the inevitable micro-transactions.
