SERRAL IS BLIZZCON 2018 WCS WORLD CHAMPION

GRAND FINALS – Serral 4-2 Stats

Preview

The moment we’ve all been waiting for has arrived. The Global Finals for StarCraft 2 start on 26th of October to 3rd of November! Serral heads to Anaheim as one of the favorites to win the tournament. His year has been phenominal, and the Global Finals are the last proving ground for our Finnish Zerg. Serral enters the tournament with a unbelievable WCS Circuit score of 14 090. To put it in perspective, it is more points than ShoWTimE, SpeCial, Neeb and HeRoMaRinE have combined. There is no time to chill, as the tournament kicks off with an intimidating group stage phase. Already half of the 16 players, who all belong to the world’s elite, will be dropped out. Serral competes in Group B, going up against sOs, Zest and HeRoMaRinE. Click for an interview with Serral!

Serral’s tournament run couldn’t have started off better. First he 2-0’d his first opponent sOs, who everyone thought to be one of the few able to give Serral a hard time. Afterwards, he faced Zest in the winner’s match of the group. Even though Zest is a formiddable player, Serral’s overall score against him tells the story – The Finn is currently 4-0 in matches against the Korean Protoss. These two solid matches resulted in Serral advancing first from his group to the Main Event!
