WCS Ro8 - The bracket is drawn
We've already reached the final of Season 3 and are nearly at the end of the year for the biggest StarCraft II spectacular in the world: the WCS Grand Finals at BlizzCon. Players who have made it to this stage could all secure themselves a spot at the Grand Finals - if they make it through to the Season Final in Canada and show us an outstanding performance as Europe's representatives. Some of the players have it easier and a top Finish within the European final might already secure them their spot at BlizzCon.
The top five players on this weekend will qualify for a spot in the Global Clash in Canada. In order to get there, they will have to make it through either to the semi-final or get a second chance in the placement matches.
The eight players had their respective enemies drawn on the end of the Round of 16, after the final players for the Round of 8 had been determined. The racial distribution is great, besides the lack of Terran players, meaning MMA is the player to represent Europe's Terrans.
Saturday, 5th of October at 16:00 CESTIn the entirety of the bracket, only one mirror match-up has been drawn, which will be the battle between Genius and duckdeok, both of which have played incredibly nice aggressive strategies throughout the earlier stages of the league, and will ensure for an incredibly exciting Protoss vs. Protoss.
