      You play against teams across Canada in different Lan Centres.

      First place wins – cash prize, better seeds + free entry at the National Final
      Second place win – better seeds at the National Final

      It’s 20$ per person.

      Hope this helps,

    Hi! I want to compete for the Starcraft 2 division at the 9 issabella cafe that is happening tomorrow. However, I cannot get 20$ through paypal.Is it somehow possible to bring a 20$ bill and give it to someone there? Thanks!

    • WCG-Tee says:

      Unfortunately the registration had to be done by paypal only.

      Try to find someone / set-up your paypal account while watching our stream this afternoon in order to be able to compete for the next qualifier.
