Players competing this weekend include Blizzard WCS Season 1 Champion Lee "INnoVation" Shin Hyung, Artur "Nerchio" Bloch, Lee "Jaedong" Jae Dong, Samuli "elfi" Sihvonen, Song "HerO" Hyeon Deok, Lee "Life" Seung Hyun, and Mun "MMA" Seong Won, and are among the final 16 players remaining. Brood War legend and favorite Lee "Flash" Young Ho was eliminated in the first day of competition, with losses to MMA and Jung "YugiOh" Seung Il.
The Counter-Strike: Global Offensive tournament has only four teams remaining, featuring reigning Swedish champions Ninjas in Pyjamas led by Christopher "GeT_RiGhT Alesund, Ukraine’s Na’Vi and Astana Dragons, and Sweden’s Lemondogs. Each of the teams dispatched their opponents convincingly 2-0 in the quarterfinals, while Lemondogs eliminated fellow countrymen Fnatic from the event in what was the biggest upset from the first day of competition.
