Word of Warcraft III Invitational Tournament Kicks Off Feb 27

Blizzard has a history of supporting the 15-year old World of Warcraft III game franchise with patches and updates that players can access via the Public Test Realm ahead of the official launch. The launching of that PTR last year signaled that Blizzard had plans for the game with many expecting a remastered version of the game.

Blizzard has announced a new gameplay patch for the game and a tournament that will take place in a few days featuring top players of the game. The tournament is called the World of Warcraft III Invitational and will be held at the Blizzard Irvine HQ on February 27 and 28 reports Engadget.

The tournament will be streamed on Twitch by two casters from Back2Warcraft. The matches held in that exhibition will include Free-For-All, 4v4, and other types of matches. Attendees of the event will include Grubby, Lyn, MaDFroG, Happy and others.

Patch 1.29 for the game brings widescreen support and some tweaks to heroes and 24-player game lobby. A remastered version of WoW III would be welcome by players of the game and breathe new life into the long-running title.
