    While we generally don't post about WC3 esport events and streamed tournaments all too often, this is definitely an exception that warrants an announcement. This year's GCS Summer Grand Finals is something to tune into!

    It's the first premier tournament to be played on the 1.29 patch. Hero balance changes, widescreen, and all that jazz that affects the base game and melee meta are to be put to action on WC3's biggest competitive stage.

    Location: Shanghai, China
    Date: June 4-10, 2018
    Prizepool: 98,000 RMB ($15,333)
    Hosted by: Netease / dz.163 (Blizzard's distributor and server in China)

    Livecasted by: Our partners Back2Warcraft on Twitch! (in English)

    Qualified players and first brackets:

    I wonder if, during the game session, the players will take advantage of currently known bugs as well as discovering new ones.

    Who knows? These bugs might even be useful in modding.

    This tournament is chinese. Hive is not chinese. Only the fewest (if any) around here speak chinese.
    Why should we care?

    the commentary is in english, with us being at sight
    the ingame language is english
    most of the koreans speak english and we'll interview them
    one of the biggest favorites is from Europe/CIS
    it's a world championship and the first of it's kind on 1.29.

    maybe thats why

    It's Warcraft. That's enough of a reason.

    It is streamed in English on twitch.tv/back2warcraft. It is one of the biggest melee tournaments of the year, it is definitely worth giving a shot! You won't be disappointed.

    I do not watch such things since I have close to zero interest in melee maps.
    I am glad to see a western player being to compete with the asians though.

    It's complicated.NetEase somehow commercialized war3 custom maps in spite of the non-profit-law of WorldEditor.It has managed to attract a lot of newbies who have no idea of intellectual property right,though most of old-school fans don't like it.

    As you know,the models,skins,icons and spells in Hiveworkshop are free.Some of our editors stole them,made some minor adjustment, and claimed the origin authors themselves.To make matters worse,they are selling them on the NetEase war3 market.Yes,yes,they sucks...

    Unlike Steam Workshop,War3 and SC2 never had rules for commercial system,which made the community of custom editors into an Utopia.Netease ,in my opinion,are destroying warcraft3 instead of ressurecting.

    What is your preferred language for developing Warcraft III maps?

    here's another discussion, I desperately want @MindWorX to bring these:
    - Map encryption or digital signature to prevent Netease from stealing your maps
    - Fix bugs to stop external DLL (to stop micro transactions or in-app-purchasing)

    to us.

    Entire playlist: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fMkd70z67SI&list=PLXVhuKDtlTeVsdVjifPGmby1ebShjLfbW

    Finals and game for third have not been uploaded yet, but I am sure they will be uploaded soon.

    Edit: how can you link youtube playlists? It always changes it to link only the first video
