Wait, I just looked at the pages and it says NA gets 7 seeds while Europe gets 6? There can be no fucking way right that NA alone would get more seeds than EU?
Edit: I guess they both get the same number of seeds 9 EU has more you have to look at who already qualified for it.

I'd be more sore about Australia/NZ getting two spots. We would've had none if we didn't have our own continental championship and had to compete with a wider region. Maybe one of the South American spots, but even that I doubt our zergs could pull off.

I think it is $60K for the NA and EU Championship as well. Global looks to be $100K+.
Cool! WCS was a great idea by Blizzard. I would love to have one each year.
I think it's really weak considering that's prize pool not prize for 1st place.
You have to consider how much they have already put into the nationals prize money wise and they are doing five continentals. I believe someone said they have given out at least 400,000$ already from nationals alone.
