The First WCS Champion of 2018 Is Crowned in Leipzig

Blizzard Entertainment

After a long three days of StarCraft, one player has risen to the top to take the title of WCS Leipzig champion. Joona “Serral” Sotala has long been considered one of the best European players, but he rarely performed as well as the hype decreed. Today that changed as he took down top players Artur “Nerchio” Bloch, Juan Carlos “SpeCial” Tena Lopez, and Tobias “ShoWTimE” Sieber in the Playoffs to claim his first WCS championship. If his performance this weekend is any indication, Serral will be a player to watch at each of our remaining Circuit stops. Congratulations, Serral!
