SERRAL IS YOUR WCS MONTREAL CHAMPION


Preview

Next weekend, it’s time to tune in to the last WCS Circuit stop of the year before Blizzcon! Serral’s road towards this event has been paved with incredible success. He claimed the Championship titles from all three previous stops and is now looking to pick up the fourth trophy to put on his shelf. The year 2018 has definitely been the Year of Serral. He holds a mindblowing record of 39 wins, 1 loss in matches in WCS events, and a 109–20 score regarding individual games. The only series loss happened in the finals of the very first WCS Challenger of the year.

Serral qualified for the event from the Challenger, in which he won the Polish Zerg-player Elazer 4-2 in the Finals. Therefore, he is able to skip the first 2 Group Stages and move directly to the 3rd Group Stage of the event. Serral is no doubt the one to fear for anyone who faces him. That also means everyone will have studied carefully to find the right tools to take down our Finnish Zerg. Tune in to the stream on 7th-9th of September to cheer Serral on to his fourth WCS victory!
