Qualifier results and invites

The next ASUS ROG StarCraft II tournament is less than a month away. All of the 24 invitations to the tournament have now been sent out for players who were selected among the almost 200 applicants interested in participating in the event. We are very proud of the attention the upcoming tournament has received in the player community. The quality of the applicants is also excellent and has got us really excited. With the qualifiers now over we are looking forward to the main event starting off on August 1st.
