The Starcraft 2 season is already underway with some surprising qualifiers for challenger. Now the first IEM of the year kicks off in Taipei with a range of fan favorites such as Snute, Hyun and Jjakji battling it out for one of the ro16 spots and a chance at the finals. The tournament will be held in Taipei on the 28th January to the 1st of February.
ReDeYe will be hosting the event alongside some of ESL’s finest commentators, James “Kaelaris” Carrol and Shaun “Apollo” Clark. Joining them will be IEM and SC2 regulars, Yoan “ToD” Merlo and Leigh “Maynarde” Mandalov.
Hosting and translating the event to give us the very best interviews with the players is the very talented Susie “lilsusie” Kim, whilst Yi “Legend” Seong Jeon will be making sure we don’t miss any of the action as the observer for the event.
With WCS points on the line, who will claim the top spot at IEM Taipei?
