Preview HomeStory Cup XII
This weekend our Terran Marc "uThermal" Schlappi will be participating at HomeStory Cup XII, hosted by TakeTV in their new studios.
The tournament starts tomorrow, the 17th, and features 32 of the best and most popular players from around the globe. Even though the main ingredients for a HomeStory Cup are always having fun and socializing, the participants will do their best, because they compete for their part of the $25.000 prizepool.
As one of only eight uThermal qualified for the event, securing his spot in the second European Qualifier. His group in Germany will be tougher though, as he has to face Hyun, Lilbow and Miniraser. The French Protoss David "Lilbow" Moschetto comes back from the WCS Finals at Blizzcon and is regarded as one of the best European players. Moving over to the Korean Ko "HyuN" Seok Hyun, we have a strong Zerg, who after 4 years of progaming just in Starcraft II still places high in tournaments, with a 2nd place at Dreamhack Stockholm in the back of our minds. The final player of the group is the Swedish Zerg Viktor "Miniraser" Malmberg. With the least results of Group E, he will be the wildcard of the 4.
To continue into the round of 16 uThermal will have to be on top of his game, but looking at previous results, it is definitely doable!
