As if MLG Columbus wasn't already enough tournament for one weekend to hold, StarCraft II fans can rest easy knowing that the Red Bull Battlegrounds in NYC are taking place starting now! Eight competitors will be duking it out for a chance at $50,000 worth of prizes. You can view the schedule as it updates right here on the Red Bull Battlegrounds website.
There are some seriously heavy hitters competing today, including MC and Bomber. Six of the players are from South Korea, while Snute comes from Sweden and Scarlett hails from Canada. It's looking to be a very intense weekend, as half of these players had to fight tooth and nail to qualify and are looking to rise to the top! Personally, I think MC is going to have a hell of a weekend and come out on top. Who are you rooting for?
Check back later in the day for an interview with casters Day and TotalBiscuit!
