“web2zone is honored to be one of only three global venues to host a regional event for Blizzard this season,” said Ed Tomasi, web2zone’s director of marketing. “I can think of no better setting than our award-winning cyber center to host such an exciting event.

“Blizzard selected web2zone because of its expertise in hosting and managing high-quality gaming events,” said Mike Morhaime, president and cofounder of Blizzard Entertainment. “With so many talented competitors and a great venue lined up for the North and South American qualifier, this Warcraft III ladder season promises to be an exciting experience for everyone involved.”
This is Blizzard’s fourth edition of the Battle.net Warcraft III ladder seasons. With the start of Season 4, Blizzard will be using three new ladders, each of which will include 100-150 players. A large portion of these players will be invited by Blizzard to participate, based on their previous tournament success and also on their current standing in this season’s ladder. Season 4 will last approximately two months, and upon completion, Blizzard will arrange for the top players from each ladder to participate in one of three live regional qualifiers located around the world, including the Americas regional qualifier at web2zone in New York City. Those who succeed in the regional qualifiers will then go head-to-head in the global finals.
