Classic Dueler's League Coming to Faerlina - $50,000 Prize Pool for Season 1
TipsOutBaby in partnership with Method has announced the Classic Dueler's League, with a $50,000 prize pool for Season 1.
Check out the announcement video below:
During the WoW classic beta, Tips organized several
wildly popular dueling events
, peaking at over 200,000 viewers. While the PvE content in Phase 1 of Classic fell easily, dueling has great replayability potential and certainly brings in the viewers. To further expand his vision for tournaments, Tips has partnered with Method for the Classic Dueler's League, an organization that has had a record year creating successful WoW events.
Registration opened October 1st and qualifiers begin October 17th. Rules will be posted in the
Classic Dueler's League Discord
Currently the tournament is limited to the US Faerlina realm, generally considered the "streamer" Classic realm. However, we can't rule out the potential that if these tournaments are successful, Blizzard might further support these efforts--a tournament realm for Classic would be quite useful.
We asked Blizzard about their plans for
supporting end-game Classic content
back at the May Classic Summit, and they did indicate they would be willing to support community efforts when possible.
Curious about what you envision for the endgame of Classic WoW. BFA has seen lots of esports growth with the Mythic Dungeon International, for example, which is a relatively-new type of content for WoW. Do you have any plans to encourage esports like speed-running, which is popular in other classic games, or are you seeing what the community comes up with?
I think the community will speak to us the best, showing their interests, what they watch on Twitch, what they do and organize on their own. There's been super-powerful moments in WoW's history which have been led by the community. And I think if they start doing these things and it makes sense to foster these efforts, we absolutely will.
I can think of a yearly event we actually put in the game--the Running of the Gnomes. It was a big community event, and now it's a micro-holiday.
We're curious to see what the community does in the endgame, for example, if they'll start speed-running Naxx.
If you're curious how classes match up against each other in PvP, we explain the strengths and weaknesses of each class in our
PvP Class Overviews
, and we've created a set of dueling guides which has matchup tips against all other classes:
Feral Druid Dueling
Ret Paladin Dueling
Shadow Priest Dueling
Enhancement Shaman Dueling
Elemental Shaman Dueling
