StarCraft II groups

Revealing the initial groups for the ASUS ROG Summer 2015 StarCraft II Tournament which is ready to kick off next week on Thursday July 30. Also presenting the community streams covering the event in multiple languages.

On Thursday July 30 at 14:00 CEST the ASUS ROG Summer 2015 StarCraft II Tournament starts with a group stage featuring 32 top notch contenders around the world. They will face each other in WCS-style double elimination groups with only half of them entering the second group stage of the tournament. The progress will be quick as the champion will be crowned already on the following day as the playoffs among the top eight contestants take place on Friday July 31. Fortunately, to help us bring you as much of the action as possible, multiple community streams will be covering the games on top of the main stream where you may enjoy the commentary of Chris “HuK” Loranger and Benjamin “DeMusliM” Baker.

As we go into the groups, you might notice some changes to the previously announced player lineup. We regretfully have to announce that Mill.ForGG, ShoWTimE, TargA, AT.Jona and cSc.DmC have cancelled their participation to the tournament. Their spots have been filled by Liquid.Snute, prOp.NaNiwa, Fuzer, KRN.Calt and KRN.Namshar.
