SERRAL IS THE TWO-TIME CONSECUTIVE GSL VS THE WORLD CHAMPION

Preview

Serral heads back to Seoul, Korea, to challenge the Korean StarCraft 2 elite on their own turf once again. He returns there as the Champion of 2018 GSL vs the World, so the hopes are set high for him on performing well in the event. Earlier this month, we got to witness some matches against top GSL players at ASUS ROG in Finland. There, Serral had a close fight against Stats, but the Protoss figured out a winning tactic and took the series 3-2. Serral dropped out in the Semi-Finals and Stats carried on to win the whole event.
