TY Wins IEM Katowice 2017

  • Blizzard Entertainment

The first StarCraft II World Championship Series (WCS) Global Event in 2017 has concluded, and Jun ‘TY’ Tae Yang has emerged as the champion! Intel Extreme Masters (IEM) Katowice hosted 72 participants between Feb. 27 and March 5, giving us some incredible matches and crazy upsets.

TY faced former teammate Kim ‘Stats’ Dae Yeob in the grand finals, and the two gave us an intense series going all the way to game seven. In the end, TY’s streamlined strategies and unrelenting pressure won him the championship, $100,000 USD, and a guaranteed spot at the WCS Global Finals later this year.
