Big achievement for Wolves eSports and our Warcraft 3 players Ilya “Sonik” Malish and Artem “Cash” Shirobokov as they attend the Warcraft Gold League Winter 2018 Finals in Shanghai, China from November 28th – December 8th. Both of them have been able to qualify through the European Qualifiers.
The Warcraft Gold League Winter 2018 is the second part of the most important individual tournament of the year which also is the most prestigious event of the scene. The tournament is organised by Blizzard Entertainment’s Chinese partner NetEase. During the group stage the 24 players are divided into 4 groups of 6 players that will face each other in a single round-robin where the top 2 of each group advance to the single-elimination playoffs. The prize money of around $16500 USD will be split between all players with the winner taking home more than $5500 USD.
Unfortunately, both Sonik and Cash were seeded into Group C and have to deal not only with incredible players, but also with each other. We’re hoping for amazing Warcraft 3 action during the tournament and that our players enjoy their time in China!
