The details of MLG Summer Starcraft 2 Arena details announced yesterday. Held in New York City, the three day tournament promises excitement as once again, thirty two star players butt heads, chasing the Summer Arena trophy.
The roster consists of twenty-four players who battled for a spot in the invite-only, open qualifiers earlier this year. Violet and Sheth and others from North America, Nerchio, Grubby and friends from Europe, Ryung and Taeja attend with the other Koreans.
The top eight ranked players from May’s Spring Arena II bring the total to thirty-two comprised of familiar faces like SaSe, Alicia, Ganzi and Leenock.
Here’s what the broadcast schedule looks like:
Friday, July 20: 5pm-11pm
Saturday, July 21: 12pm-8pm
Sunday, July 22: 12pm-9pm
All times are Eastern Time
If you’re afraid of missing the action due to an empty wallet post-Steam Summer Sale, MLG have stated that for the first time ever, the standard definition stream from the Main Arena will be completely free to watch.
Artosis, djWheat, Day9, Apollo and Mr Bitter will be casting the event for your viewing pleasure.
