Preview

World Electronic Sports Games 2018 is just around the corner! Serral is travelling to Chongqing, China, to represent Finland and compete in the tournament with a $240,000 prize pool.

After placing 5th-8th in IEM Katowice last weekend, Serral is hungry to show he can do better. The tournament begins on March 11th, and the Grand Finals are played on the 17th. He will play in Group A, which is arguably one of the most challenging groups of Group Stage 1. Besides Serral, it features Neeb, ShoWTimE, MaSa, Harstem and msrm. Recently, we haven’t seen many Protoss players compete against Serral but he did defeat Harstem 2-0 in WCS Winter EU in February.
