If you liked games like Warcraft 3, Age of Mythology, Age of Empires and such growing up, then you will surely enjoy this new tournament we are organizing at Your University. The game in question is, none other but the king of RTS (Real Time Strategy), Starcraft 2.
Developed by Blizzard Entertainment in 2010, after many years (12 to be exact) of the original Starcraft, Blizzard Entertainment fans finally got a taste of a modern and balanced RTS experience. The game is known for its huge learning curve. In addition, it’s often being called the hardest game to master. Everyone can play and be somewhat good, of course, but to really master this RTS is no easy task. The game was most popular in South Korea, so naturally, the best players were Korean. Every year, at Blizzard Entertainment’s event “Blizzcon” we are able to see an amazing performances from these RTS masters.
