BlizzCon eSports Wrap Up

Melbourne Australia: Check out the final coverage for BlizzCon 2015 thanks Blizzard:

This weekend at BlizzCon we crowned our first ever Heroes of the Storm world champions; saw an epic StarCraft II showdown between the 2013 and 2014 BlizzCon winners; witnessed amazing Hearthstone games, and capped it all off with a thrilling World of Warcraft rematch between two of Europe’s finest teams – all for a combined event prize pool of more than $1.25 million (USD)! Australians Leigh “Maynarde” Mandalov and Andrew “mOOnGLaDe” Pender flew the flag for Australia and New Zealand, commentating the StarCraft II matches live to the packed out arena, and keeping viewers around the globe on the edges of their seats.

Below is a summary of the winners, photos from the event, and links to match replays and finals brackets. We have more high quality images from the weekend available, so if there’s anything you’re looking for, or you have a specific request, please let us know.
