Stryfe's & Meowerdoom's Blast from the Past | $200+

Welcome to Stryfe's & Meowerdoom's Blast from the Past, a tournament where you'll learn (or remind yourself), that Heart of the Swarm is and was the best iteration of StarCraft II! A large portion of the StarCraft II community haven't experienced the other versions of StarCraft II outside of the campaigns. We hope that this tournament will enlighten players to just how good StarCraft II was in what we think is its best state.

This tournament is open to all players of all skill levels and everyone is invited to participate.
