The StarCraft II War Chest is here, with new skins and a brand-new community tournament! In addition to granting players access to a bounty of goodies—like new skins, sprays, emojis, and more—War Chest 6 allows fans to lend some crucial support to War Chest Team League, an upcoming community tournament in partnership with StarCraft II caster and tournament organizer Wardi.
War Chest is a way for fans to show their support in StarCraft II esports and in the process unlock more than 80 new in-game goodies. The Terrans, Protoss, and Zerg each have their own individual War Chest available for purchase filled with unit skins, decals, sprays, emojis, and portraits. War Chests are broken up into phases that last several weeks, and each comes with its own set of rewards players work toward by earning XP in Versus or Co-op matches.
Blizzard is teaming up with Wardi and committing $150,000 of War Chest proceeds to a community-run tournament called War Chest Team League. We’ve tasked nine professional StarCraft II commentators to bring their top-tier casting chops and insider knowledge to recruit four-player teams to compete in the tournament, which is slated for two phases, across eight broadcast days, and over the span of four weeks. Stay tuned for full tournament details and the caster reveal!
