Blizzard has announced that registration for the 2010 Arena Tournament is now open. Teams will be competing on separate tournament realms where they can create up to three lvl 80 characters and equip them with "gear from the WotLK expansion". The tournament will consist of a regional qualifier followed by regional finals and it will require an entrance fee. The winners will move on to the global competition and the format for this year remains 3v3. Up for grabs, other than the Vanquisher title and an Armored Murloc pet for your live characters, is a piece of the over 200,000$ prize fund and,um, glory I guess. The tournament itself should start very soon so if you're interested head on over to the site, or check the full post here:
