HGC Announces Changes for the China Region

Blizzard Entertainment
27 June 2017

We have received a lot of feedback from the Chinese audience in favor of the format from both the Gold Club WOrld Championship and the Mid-Season Brawl. Based off of this feedback from the local community, we are making the following changes to HGC China:

  • Five week schedule, reduced from seven weeks
  • Three days per week (Monday to Wednesday) instead of two
  • Four matches per day
  • Double round robin - in each part of Phase 2, teams play each other twice instead of once
  • Each match is a two-game set
    • 1 point for a 1-1 finish
    • 3 points for a 2-0 sweep
  • Points-based standings
  • Top three teams attend the Eastern Clash after five weeks

Caster Kendrick Swissh will be providing an English stream for Phase 2 of HGC China. The schedule for HGC China will be updated on our website in the coming days. Until then, you can find the team rosters for the region through our schedule page.
