Warcraft III Beta Patch, Competition
8:00 AM | Andy Largent | Comment on this story
Blizzard has released a beta of the upcoming Warcraft III 1.15 patch to users connecting to their Westfall server. In addition, the company is hoping to get players to help test the new gameplay changes by offering a competition starting tomorrow night.
The contest is described to balance the new clan ladder feature of the patch. Here's more from their site:
As additional participation incentive, we will be running a clan ladder, Random Team, and FFA based competition where winners will be awarded spots in the World of Warcraft Beta. The competition will officially start on Tuesday, April 20 at 6:00 PM Pacific Standard Time (PST) and end Tuesday, April 27 at 6:00 PM PST. The competition will work such that the ten (10) highest experience contributors of each victorious clan will be awarded spots in the World of Warcraft Beta. Clans can compete in all four of the different ladders (1 vs. 1, 2 vs. 2, 3 vs. 3, and 4 vs. 4). However, clans and individuals can only win once. We will also award the top five (5) Free-For-All and top five (5) Random Team players a spot in the World of Warcraft Beta. Winners will be chosen at Blizzard Entertainment's sole discretion.For details on how to download the new patch or start trying out the game, use the links below. A full, updated version of Warcraft III or its expansion Frozen Throne are needed in order to play.
