    UPDATE: Registration has opened! Hive members enter HERE, everyone else HERE.

    We are excited to announce the first ever The Hive Workshop pro-tournament for Warcraft 3.
    The Hive Workshop Cup is a competitive 1v1 tournament where members of our, and the greater Warcraft 3, community will compete for a prize of €555.

    Today, we're excited to have the opportunity, thanks to the sponsorship of @Nightmare2077, to run a competitive 1v1 Warcraft 3 tournament for our community, and Warcraft 3 as a whole. We are also working with Back2Warcraft to organize and cast this event.

    The Hive Workshop has been a dedicated community creating custom experiences in Warcraft 3 for many years. And it's important for us to have the tournament to reflect this. This is why we'll be using community maps for the map pool.

    A contest for our community tournament!

    We're hosting a melee map contest where the top 4 maps get a spot in the contest. You're allowed to submit 1 of your maps - new or old - for this contest. Either create a new map, polish an existing one, or submit an approved map you've previously made.


    Tournament schedule:
    • The tournament map pool contest will be conducted from now until October 6th, 2019. The top 4 maps will be selected for the map pool.
    • The Hive Tournament will have 2 open qualifiers from October 12-14, 2019. The top competitors of this group will move on.
    • Following this, the Hive qualifiers will take place October 15th, 2019. Exclusive to members of the Hive community (prior to September 20th, 2019), the top 2 competitors of this group will move on.
    • The Playoffs and Finals will take place October 18th and 19th, 2019. The top players of all 3 qualifiers will compete for the grand prize of €555.

    Details on registration and format will be announced soon.

    Why not 666?

    Creating one in such a short time is nuts if you also want quality.

    Feel free to donate more? :D

    Don't worry, we did not come up with this tournament idea yesterday. Some arrangements were done before today's announcing, so all should go smoothly!

    Holy crap 555€ for a melee map? This should be very intriguing.

    I think the only price for the map maker is reputation, no?

    friendly hint:

    perhaps you could see ladder melee maps to take ideas about the general map layout.
    I like to do that, before I did my 4v4 I saw a lot of 8 players maps.
