WCS Circuit events were streamed on Twitch while WCS Korea events were available on Twitch, YouTube, and afreecaTV. World Championship Series Korea professional competition was centered on events organized by afreecaTV under the Global StarCraft II League (GSL) name, including GSL Code S seasons and GSL Super Tournament events. World Championship Series Circuit professional competition centered on tournaments held under the World Championship Series Circuit name with qualifiers held for each under the World Championship Series Challenger name. World Championship Global competition featured two large events each year. These were ESL's Intel Extreme Masters World Championship event in Katowice, Poland, and afreecaTV's GSL vs. the World event in Seoul, Korea. For its final two iterations as part of the WCS system, the former has had its prize pool crowdfunded, as did the Global Finals event for its final three iterations. This was done through the StarCraft II War Chest system, which allowed players to purchase cosmetic items in game with 25% of sales going towards funding the professional scene. (en)
  • StarCraft II World Championship Series (сокр. WCS) — чемпионат мира по StarCraft II, серия киберспортивных соревнований, спонсируемых Blizzard Entertainment, заканчивающаяся финальным турниром, проводящимся в рамках выставки BlizzCon (кроме 2012 года, когда финал прошёл в Шанхае). Проводился ежегодно с 2012 по 2019 год. С 2020 года проводится чемпионат . С 2013 года мир был разбит на регионы. Победители региональных турниров получали рейтинговые очки. В конце года 16 игроков, набравших наибольшее число очков (с 2015 года — наибольшее количество очков в своих регионах и победители самых престижных турниров) проходили на финальную стадию чемпионата. Начиная с 2017 года призовой фонд частично набирался за счёт краудфандинга: в него переходила часть средств, вырученных с продажи косметических предметов в игре. (ru)
