Both, the StarCraft and WarCraft tournaments are going to be very interesting as there are some of the world's best players participating. For example in StarCraft there is 'The Meastro' and BlizzCon champion sAviOr, MSL champions Bisu and NaDa and 'Monster Terran' iloveoov. In WarCraft 3 the well known players WE.Sky from China, BeT.FoV or SK.Lyn are participating, just to name few.

The prizes for StarCraft are totaled at $30.000 and for WarCraft 3 as well as CounterStrike a total of $20.000. In SC the first place winner takes home overall about $14.000, in WC3 the winner still gets $10.000.

In WarCraft 3 the favorites for a top ranking seem to be Sky, FoV, Lyn and ReiGn, while others like Fly100%, Soccer or GoStop and some more will have some chances to surprise.
In StarCraft it might be quite clear who will get a top rank, since sAviOr and Bisu are quite dominating. NaDa and iloveoov might have good chances as well, while the Chinese players aren't counted on to be able to fight for the top ranks, although their superstars Pj and Lx are attending the tournament.
