We're pleased to announce the Warcraft III: The Frozen Throne 2009 Tournament, the seventh edition of the Battle.net Warcraft III ladder tournaments. The upcoming tournament will use a similar format to the previous tournaments, using the three invitational ladders hosted on the Kalimdor, Northrend, and Azeroth realms. Once again, these ladders will initially be populated on an invitation-only basis and feature the world's most established and successful Warcraft III players. Each will function as a standard Battle.net solo ladder, with their own web interface displaying rankings, and their own map pools. Additionally, top performers from each invitational ladder will have a chance to win a StarCraft II beta key. For more information and details on the tournament please check out the FAQ.
