Online Tournament Passes:
ACL competitions have long been 'pay at the door' type events. While we don't want to stop this service and the convenience of cash, we are trying to limit the administrative duties involved with this process. To help with ease of service and ease of organisation we are again providing Online Tournament Passes for competitors to pay before the date at a discounted rate. Paying at the door is $5 more expensive then paying online so why not save some money today! You can buy Online Tournament Passes for all titles at ACL Melbourne here
Blizzard World Championship Series Qualifiers:
As well as being one of the most fierce and competitive Starcraft 2 tournaments Australia will see this year, ACL Melbourne will play host to the most important Blizzard WCS qualifier event, where competitors will compete for 4 spots to the Blizzard WCS Nationals event. At the Australian Blizzard WCS Nationals event players will battle it out for $6000 worth of cash and prizes and then the Top 6 competitors will compete in the Oceanic Finals for a massive $12000!
