Blizzard revealed its plans for World of Warcraft esports in 2020 today, which once again include the Arena World Championship and Mythic Dungeon International.
While the Arena World Championship promises to give out $500,000 in prizing, the MDI is set to have a prize pool of $300,000.
The prize pool for AWC is a notable boost from last year’s $330,000, which was crowdfunded by in-game sales. The MDI, on the other hand, is seeing its prize pool shrink slightly after having the same prize pool as AWC in 2019 as a part of crowdfunding efforts.
In addition, each competition will see a few format changes. The AWC will be comprised of four North American and four European cups that are open to anyone who wants to sign up online. Teams will play for a piece of a $10,000 prize pool and AWC points that will help them qualify for the AWC Battle for Azeroth Finals at the end of the season.
