TwitchTV Japanese SC2 Community Cup FINALS

Back in July TwitchTV, in conjunction with the Japanese StarCraft 2 Community, announced the very first JP Community TwitchTV Cup Series event. Four cups took place during the months of July and August, with the top two finishers qualifying for the Grand Finals.

This weekend, Saturday and Sunday starting at 12:00 GMT / 08:00 EDT, we are excited to present to you the GRAND FINALS (Click here to see the official announcement). The 8 qualified players from the previous cups will face off for approximately $1000 + tons of gear from Steelseries in prizes. We hope this event can give exposure to the Japanese StarCraft scene in new and exciting ways. The overall goal is to bring the Japanese players to the forefront of TeamLiquid and the StarCraft community in general, and encourage growth in the Japanese RTS eSports scene. We hope you take the time to tune into the event, or catch the VODs afterwards, and support the SC2 scene in glorious Nippon!
