World Championship Series 2013 gets off to a turbulent start, and has now moved on to the next phase. WCS Korea has completed its Ro16 group nomination, while the other two regions have just getting started for their Ro32 matches. Although there are quite a number of controversies in regards to the final 32 players in America and Europe, the groupings are final and will not be changed. This post provides a summation of the list of players who got their names down in the world’s most prestigious Starcraft II tournament.
The first season of Heart of the Swarm GSL is starting on 4 April 2013.
It is important to note that the players qualify for the upcoming season using Wings of Liberty. Thus, the race distribution does not represent the current state of Heart of the Swarm.
15 gas opening is the most common build for TvP in recent IEM – World Championship and MLG Winter Championship. The build is not exactly new as it has been used in Wings of Liberty for TvT, albeit it wasn’t as popular as other builds.
The build has been mentioned in Team Liquid and Reddit, but I feel that the “descriptions” do not clearly identify the true value of the build. This post is about how the build could shape up to adapt to various options of Protoss.
The first season of 2013 is about to begin. KeSPA players are no longer surprises coming into the tournament, while the pride of the eSF players is at stake. However, the main discussion point is not KeSPA vs. eSF, it is the invasion of the swarm.
I could have posted the race distribution for season 5 before the first game was played, but thesis is a bitch. Although the season has progressed into the Ro16, this post should still be posted for record purposes.
