On his quest to gain valuable WCS Korea points, it's time for the third and final Global StarCraft II League season this year - and it is ByuN's turn next.
This Saturday, July 15th, at 06:00 CEST, Group D of the first group stage in the GSL Season 3 will be played out and our Korean World Champion Byun Hyun Woo will take part in it to preserve his last chance to get home a GSL trophy this year. In addition to that, it is a really important opportunity to gather more WCS Korea points.
Right now, ByuN is ranked at #10 in the rankings and as we all know, only the best eight players will make it to BlizzCon in Anaheim later this year - a place our Korean prodigy has very fond memories of. In order to qualify for the WCS Grand Finals, however, he will most likely have to go far into the play-offs this season. Doing well in the group stage will be the first step towards achieving this.
Forte, Losira and 2017 GSL Season 1 winner Stats will be in his way this Saturday who will make sure this will not be a walk in the park - the latter player is not ranked #1 this year (by a lot) for nothing.
It goes without saying that we will all keep a close eye on the action and as always, we will keep you updated on everything via Social Media.
