Serral Qualifies for Katowice
The IEM world championships is just around the corner and this year ENCE fans will have something to cheer for as our very own Serral will be in attendance. The European qualifiers witnessed some of the best players in the region come together and fight for three open spots at the tournament. Serral early on in the qualifiers dropped to the lower bracket but managed a resurgence to make it through to the LAN event. Through the lower bracket he managed to take down such players as Elazer, Nerchio and Snute in quite convincing fashion and proved that he is a name to watch out for at the World Championships as a dark horse.

The event which will take place 3-5th March at the Spodek Arena in Katowice Poland will be a big step forward for Serral and a look into his promising possibilities. The tournament will gather the best of the best in the Starcraft II scene that will compete to claim a share of the $250,000 and title of World Champion. The format for the tournament will be four groups of six competitors first followed by a single elimination playoff.
Full coverage of the event will be available right here on ENCE and we hope you cheer on Serral as he steps onto the big stage next month.
