Shack PSA: Battle.net World Championship kicks off tonight

A gathering of the world's finest StarCraft 2 and World of Warcraft Arena players are fighting to the virtual death at Blizzard's own Battle.net World Championship this weekend. While the event is both in China and sold out, perhaps making it a little tricky for you to attend, the action will be streamed live in HD for free.

Thirty-two StarCraft 2 players who qualified in tournaments around the world will be fighting for the grand prize of $100,000, and ten 3v3 WoW Arena teams are after $105,000. Runners-up get some cash too, but they're simply glorified losers. On the side, two top WoW guilds will be racing to finish the Mists of Pandaria raid Mogu'shan Vaults for glory.

The action will be streamed here from 6pm PST tonight. Check the schedule for more.

Observe, a fluffy trailer that has moving pictures and stuff I guess:
