PREVIEW

The WCS Spring Champion Serral returns this weekend to Kyiv to compete against the best foreigners. Two out of four circuit stops have already concluded, one going to the Italian Zerg player Reynor, and one to Joona. Can he snatch yet another WCS title, or is it time to hand the crown forwards?

Lately, Serral has shown to everyone that the Year of Serral did not end in 2018. Claiming the WCS Spring Championship impressively with a 4-0 score against SpeCial, established his spot at the top of the foreigners loud and clear. Recently he got a chance to go head to head against the Koreans, winning his second Homestory Cup in a row. On his way to becoming the champion, he took down players such as soO and TY.

But the road hasn’t been all smooth sailing. Some players are rising to the challenge stronger than last year. Here are a few examples of matchups that can provide some entertaining series in the upcoming tournament!
