On November 23 & 24, eight of the best StarCraft II players in the world will be competing for $50,000 in New York City at Red Bull Battle Grounds.
Kim “sOs” Yoo Jin took the top prize in the World Championship Series over the weekend in Anaheim, CA. In New York, he’ll be joining last year’s winner of Red Bull Battle Grounds Jang ‘MC’ Min Chul, and the runner-up Choi ‘Bomber’ Ji Sung.
Red Bull Training Grounds champions will be there as well: Jo ‘Golden’ Myeong Hwan, and Jens ‘Snute’ Aasgaard. Rounding out the eight players, who qualified through online tournaments will be: Sasha ‘Scarlett’ Hostyn, Won ‘PartinG’ Lee and Ko ‘HyuN’ Seok Hyun.
But, the competitors are only half the fun. Who’s going to be calling these pros as they aim to take each other down? Well, you’re in luck as the commenting staff is star-studded. Sean ‘Day‘ Plott, Marcus ‘djWHEAT’ Graham, Ben ‘MrBitter’ Nichol and John ‘TotalBiscuit’ Bain will all be on hand to call the action from New York.
The event kicks off November 23 at the Red Bull channel on Twitch TV at 1 pm E.T, and will pick the up the action the following day at the same time.
