Inside the Arena World Championship

Arena players from the Americas and Europe will compete throughout 2020 in the Arena World Championship (AWC), hoping to prove themselves in battle and earn their spot at the AWC Battle for Azeroth Finals at the end of the season. Only one team will walk away as the 2020 Battle for Azeroth Champions. 

First, teams need to prove themselves in their own region, starting with their Arena Cups. These are online 3v3 Arena tournaments, hosted by Blizzard, open to players of all skill levels. Regional bragging rights and cash rewards are up for grabs!

If you think your team has what it takes to compete, check out the official rules to ensure you’re eligible, then head over the Battlefy home page to sign up for the next Arena Cup in your region!

The Arena World Championship operates on a point system. Points will be awarded to the top twelve teams for each Arena Cup in 2020. These points can add up to a ticket to the AWC Battle for Azeroth Finals at the end of the season.  

The AWC Battle for Azeroth Finals is an in-person LAN tournament at the end of the season where players will compete for a USD $500,000 prize pool – the biggest AWC prize pool to date!

For a full rundown of point distribution, check out the official 2020 AWC ruleset.

Each team will be allowed one free roster swap in the season, following this roster swaps will result in a 50% deduction of their AWC point pool at the time of the swap. 

Remember, anyone can try to compete in the Arena World Championship! Head to our sign-up page for more information.

To send off Battle for Azeroth in style, the best eight teams from across the world will converge at the AWC Battle for Azeroth Finals! The qualifying teams will include four teams from the Americas and four from Europe. The action at the Battle for Azeroth Finals will be intense, as metas from across the globe clash.

This will be the 13th World of Warcraft 3v3 global program released by Blizzard. With action-packed gameplay and brand-new opportunities for players and organizers to get involved, the stories forged in the Arena this year will never be forgotten.

Assemble your team and queue up; glory awaits those who want it most!

Do I need a team of four players to sign up and compete?
Nope! Four-player rosters are optional at all stages of the Arena World Championship; you only ever need a total of three players to have an eligible team. Four-player rosters can provide a lot of flexibility, however, so it’s often worth finding a fourth player to round out your team.

What happens to my points if I leave my team?
As mentioned in the rules, points are awarded to the team itself, not individual players. So, if you leave your team and join another team, you don’t bring any points with you. There are some specific scenarios that can occur if multiple players leave the same team at the same time—read more about that in section 4.3 of the rules.

I’m a citizen in one eligible country and have a valid work visa in another eligible country. Where do I compete?
The region that you will compete in corresponds to the country specified in your Blizzard account. If this is not set to the country you wish to compete in, you must update your Blizzard account’s country of residence prior to competing.

I have moved countries since I created my Blizzard account. How do I update it?
Please contact our Customer Service team to begin the process of updating your Blizzard account credentials—it’s quick and easy! Read our support article for more instructions.

My account isn’t in good standing. Can I sign up with a different account to be eligible to compete?
If you have received notification that you are disqualified from the Arena World Championship, this disqualification applies to all accounts owned by you. Your notification from Blizzard will have more details about when you will be eligible to compete again. If you have any questions about your disqualification or suspension, please contact us via email.
