The winners from BlizzCon

Posted on: Nov 06, 2018 By smartlaunch in Uncategorized,

This weekend saw the twelfth annual BlizzCon take place at the Anaheim Convention Center in Anaheim, California. BlizzCon is a yearly celebration of Blizzard Entertainment’s hugely popular videogames, as well as the communities of iconic titles like World of Warcraft and Overwatch. Here is a quick summary of what happened this weekend:

The Finnish performance in Starcraft 2. Result: Serral 4 – 2 Stats
The 20-year-old Finn Joona “Serral” Sotala did what had felt as impossible for many years; during the WCS Global finals, he put South Korea from the throne and became the world’s best Starcraft 2 player. Kim “Stats” Dae Yeob fought well, but the Finn had the aim set.

South Korea made it all foreseen in the Overwatch World Cup. Result: South Korea 4 – 0 China
They lost the Starcraft 2 throne, but that was enough. The favorites South Korea shattered all resistance in the World Cup tournament in Overwatch.

The story repeated itself for Wubby in HOTS. Result: Dignitas 0 – 3 Gen.G
At first, it looked as if the Swedish team Dignitas would be able to overturn Gen.G’s (former MVP Black) winnings. But, Jonathan “Wubby” Gunnarsson had to see the story repeat itself. Dignitas was outclassed and although it was flashing to the Europeans and they seemed to take back the check, it was not enough to take home a single map.

China shines in Hearthstone Global Games. Result: China 3 – 0 Brazil
China had no intention of being defeated and beat Brazil in the big finals. Worth noting is that China did not lose a single round through the group play and the playoffs.

World of Warcraft Arena. Result: Method Orange 4-0 The Gosu Crew
Method’s two teams fought against each other to secure the first place in the grand final of the Arena World Championship. At the final, Method Orange waited in dominant style to put the Gosu boys in place to secure the World Championship title.
