One week ago I informed you about the KeSPA and other Korean e-sports organizations conflict with Blizzard Entertainment. It seems that both sides reached a partial agreement. Why partially? On the official game list isn't one game- Starcraft: Brood War. The organizers of WCG responded immediately:
"We decided to remove StarCraft 1 from our games lineup after a discussion with the gamers from all over the world, as well as the partner companies. Also, as we aim to represent the world's premier gaming tournament, we chose to use StarCraft 2 - as the game is popular worldwide."
Well, now the fans of StarCraft 2 might now sleep peacefully.
We must noted higher position League of Legends in the international area. Last year LoL featured as a promotional title at the WCG, this year however it has been selected as an official title for the first time. Will there be competition for Starcraft and Warcraft?
