It is typically held at the Anaheim Convention Center in Anaheim, Los Angeles, California, and over the past few years, StarCraft II tournaments have become even bigger and have attracted the best players in the world.
It has hosted two BlizzCon Invitationals in and that have been hotly contested and well-viewed. In , the stakes went to another level as that year's BlizzCon also hosted the October GSL Code S final - the first Code S final outside of Korea.
Both Korean and English casters including Artosis , Tasteless and Mr. Chae talked on stage about how they had never seen a crowd as big as the one that had turned out for the final, where MMA beat Mvp for his first Code S title.
In , BlizzCon hosted arguably even higher stakes - the year-end WCS Global Finals that featured the top 16 WCS points earners in a no-holds-barred single-elimination tournament to name the best in the world.
In , that returned, with the Round of 16 played a week before, the top 8 playing at the event and the rest showcasing Legacy of the Void in a 2v2 showmatch tournament.

July 22, We've made a major update to the StarCraft II Map Editor, and you can check it out on the PTR now! July 14, July 2, June 16, The StarCraft II War Chest is here, with new skins and a brand-new community tournament!
June 11, June 9, May 26, In one mission, the player must use a single unit to influence the tide of an AI-controlled battle.
Between missions, players can choose units, buildings, and upgrades that are not available in the multiplayer missions. Wings of Liberty features approximately the same number of units as the original StarCraft.
For example, the Protoss Zealot, a melee unit from the original game, has the researchable ability to dash forward and quickly reach nearby enemies as a refinement of its speed upgrade from the original.
Other units have been replaced or removed. Among these are the inclusion of units that can traverse varying levels of terrain,  or have the ability to teleport short distances.
These mostly consist of units that have been scrapped from development such as the Terran Diamondback as well as various returning units from the original StarCraft such as the Terran Wraith and Goliath.
The campaign features hirable mercenaries, modified versions of certain units with enhanced attributes such as health or damage that become available for hire once the standard unit is unlocked.
The StarCraft II Editor is a campaign, map, and mod editor. It is the first editor by Blizzard to feature built-in mod creation and usage support.
Updated art and data from the original StarCraft that were not used, along with models and data that were scrapped during the development process including those made as April Fools jokes will be available in the editor.
Lead producer Chris Sigaty has stated that the editor gives players the ability to create role-playing, Hero-type units and structures resembling those from WarCraft III.
The final build includes a third-person style perspective for missions. The editor was available for the first time during the phase 1 beta testing of StarCraft II , when it came with a patch.
With the start of phase 2, the editor was updated. There is a map-making community using the editor, creating first-person shooter games, role-playing video games , tower defense , and multiplayer online battle arena -type games.
The map database is updated as more map makers create mods for the community. The editor changes the way maps are distributed: rather than hosting games using local map files, users create and join games using maps that have been published to Battle.
Map or mod uploads are limited to a total of 50 MB of storage, divided between ten files at most, with no file being larger than 10 MB. Although the StarCraft II Editor offers more features than the original StarCraft Editor in terms of game customization, there are concerns that the publishing limitations of Battle.
The StarCraft II Arcade is a major addition to the map-making community,  where high quality maps may be sold for a small fee as "premium maps" over Battle.
As a part of the arcade feature, a custom map called Blizzard DOTA , which eventually became a standalone game named Heroes of the Storm , was announced alongside several other mods of Blizzard Entertainment at BlizzCon StarCraft II does not offer the ability to play directly over a local area network LAN , as is possible with StarCraft ; all network games are routed through the Internet via Blizzard's gaming servers.
The campaign storyline of StarCraft II takes place four years after StarCraft: Brood War ,  and features the return of Zeratul , Arcturus Mengsk , Artanis , Sarah Kerrigan , and Jim Raynor.
It also features new characters such as Rory Swann and Tychus Findlay. In StarCraft II , players revisit familiar worlds, like Char, Mar Sara, and Tarsonis, as well as new locations, such as the jungle planet Bel'Shir and New Folsom.
The Xel'Naga , an ancient space-faring race responsible for creating the Protoss and the Zerg, also play a major role in the story. At the conclusion of Brood War , Kerrigan and her Zerg forces became the dominant faction in the Koprulu Sector, having annihilated the United Earth Directorate 's Expeditionary Force, defeated the Terran Dominion , and invaded the Protoss homeworld of Aiur.
However, after the conclusion of Brood War , Kerrigan retreats to Char, despite having more than enough power to crush all remaining resistance in the Koprulu Sector.
In the four years leading up to the events of StarCraft II , she has not been seen or heard from by any of the other characters.
Arcturus Mengsk has been left to rebuild the Dominion, and is consolidating his power while fending off harassment from rival Terran groups.
Mengsk has become power-hungry, declaring Jim Raynor an outlaw and showing little desire to protect or aid the colonies under his jurisdiction.
Valerian Mengsk , a character introduced in the novel Firstborn , will play an important role in Dominion politics, due to his position as heir apparent to the throne.
Meanwhile, Jim Raynor, whose role in the events of StarCraft and Brood War has been marginalized by the media under the Dominion's control, has become a mercenary who spends his free time drinking in Joeyray's Bar.
Chris Metzen , Vice President of Creative Development at Blizzard, has emphasized that by the events of StarCraft II , Raynor has become jaded and embittered by the way he was used and betrayed by Arcturus Mengsk.
Other new characters to the series include Tychus Findlay , an ex-convict and marine who becomes a member of Raynor's crew, and Matt Horner , Raynor's second in command, a character originally featured in the novel Queen of Blades.
Following the fall of Aiur and the death of the Dark Templar matriarch Raszagal , the Protoss have retreated to the Dark Templar homeworld of Shakuras.
There, Artanis , a former student of Tassadar , is trying to unify the Khalai Protoss and the Dark Templar, who have nearly separated into warring tribes as a result of centuries of distrust.
Four years after the Brood War, the Dominion is once again the dominant Terran power in the Koprulu sector.
News reports reveal that in the four years since the end of the Brood Wars, the standing Dominion military forces have been reduced and defense budget has instead been diverted to hunting down rebel forces that operate against the Dominion.
For reasons unknown, Kerrigan gathered the swarm at Char and then vanished from sight. With the Zerg gone, the Protoss have once again taken a passive role in the galaxy.
Jim Raynor has formed a revolutionary group named Raynor's Raiders in order to overthrow Dominion Emperor Arcturus Mengsk.
On Mar Sara, Raynor meets with an old comrade, Tychus Findlay. Together, they liberate the local population from Dominion control and also discover a component of a mysterious Xel'Naga artifact.
As the Zerg begin to overrun Mar Sara, Raynor arranges an evacuation to his battlecruiser, the Hyperion , captained by Matt Horner, Raynor's second-in-command.
With Tychus acting as the middleman, the Raiders embark on a series of missions to find the remaining pieces of the Xel'Naga artifact, which they sell to the enigmatic Moebius Foundation in order to fund their revolution.
