Some of us may be saddened to hear that Blizzcon 2012 is going to be skipped but hopefully our feelings will be mended with 2012 Battle.net World Championship which is going to be held in Shanghai. The 2012 Battle.net will host the World of Warcraft Arena World Championship tournaments and the Strarcraft II World Championship tournament and will be held on November 17 & 18 2012. Blizzard has stated the next Blizzcon will be in 2013.
The Battle.net World Championship, which will take place later this year, will be the culmination of more than 30 eSports events run by Blizzard and tournament organizers. These events are collectively known as the StarCraft II World Championship Series.
The goal of the StarCraft II World Championship Series is to identify a true global champion, as players enter and qualify through open tournaments starting at the national level. The National Championships are designed to allow local heroes to rise to the top and be recognized in their country. The top finishers at each National Championship will earn spots at their Regional Finals events, which will be an all-out brawl between neighboring countries to decide who will represent their continent at the Battle.net World Championship.
