PREVIEW

The WCS Circuit has almost gone a full circle as we head to the WCS Fall tournament in Montreal, Canada. WCS Fall is the last pit stop before the climax in the Global Finals in November. We already got a small taste of BlizzCon when Serral became the Champion of GSL vs the World, beating Elazer 4-2 in the first all-foreign Finals on South Korean soil. This proves that now, more than ever, you should have your eyes set on the WCS scene of StarCraft 2. It has clearly develop to be an arena for extremely high skilled gameplay.

Big names who are competing in the event are Elazer, Reynor, Neeb, SpeCial, TIME, HeRoMaRinE and ShoWTimE amongs others. Also, we will get to see a lot of less known NA talent due to the change of venue from Europe to North America.
