Gfinity just released the groups for its upcoming StarCraft 2 tournament. The short version: get excited. The lineup is a veritable wishlist of Korean and European pros in match-ups that are sure to make for taut early rounds.
Headlining group A, GSL Code S grand finalist Won “Parting” Lee Sak will duel Team Liquid’s Jens “Snute” Aasgaard for the top spot. Playing spoiler, Kristoffer “Targa” Marthinsen and Yoo “TRUE” Ki Sung will look to steal games from the proven talents.
Group B will feature a pair of Korean favorites with a pair of Korean Zergs bringing up the rear. Kim “Soulkey” Min Chul and Jang “MC” Min Chul will look to avoid early slip ups against Lee “Sacsri” Yeh Hoon and Lee “Rogue” Byung Ryul.
As for groups C and D, the winners and losers are anybody’s guess.
Group C will pit Team Liquid’s Patrick “Bunny” Brix against Jung “Rain” Yoon Jong, Shin “Hydra” Dong Won, and Jung “Fantasy” Ayung Hoon. Group D, arguably the “group of death” will test fan favorite Lee “Jaedong” Jae Dong against Ha “Terminator” Jae Sang, Jung “Jjakji” Ji Hoon, and Kim “Heart” Min Hyuk.
