Guild Wars 2 goes global in August when the first Guild Wars 2 International All-Stars Tournament kicks off at gamescom 2014. Players from China, North America and Europe will be going head-to-head in a massive PVP tournament that also happens to be the game's first real global competition. Prepare yourselves.
For the event, ArenaNet will be working with Twitch.tv to stream the entire tournament. The actual show floor in Germany will feature daily matches, while Twitch will actually be livestreaming for the rest of the world. Definitely a huge step for ArenaNet to be taking, and here's hoping for some great matches.
In addition to the international tournamen, ArenaNet will be letting their North American and European communities vote on who they want to see in the All-Stars Tournament, choosing from two 16-player pools featuring qualified competitors. In China, competitors will be picked from KongZhong's weekly tournament series; KongZhong is the Guild Wars distributor in China.
gamescom will take place in Cologne, Germany, from August 14 through August 17.
