The grand final of WCS Valencia was a nail-biting clash between two powerful zerg players, but only one could stand victorious. After seven hard thought battles we now have our WCS Valencia champion: Mikołaj “Elazer” Ogonowski!
Aleady at WCS Jönköping, Elazer showed proof of great shape, placing 3rd-4th and hinting about his true potential. At Valencia, Elazer showed the crowd just how hungry he was for a title. In the playoffs he took out opponents such as Has, Nerhcio and TRUE, always with the score 3-1. In the grand final he was put against Snute, which proved to be his greatest opponent yet. After four maps, Snute was in the lead with 3-1, but after a great comeback from Elazer on the maps of Blood Boil, Sequencer, and Defender’s Landing, the polish zerg prevailed and won the series.
Our next stop will now be WCS Montreal, September 8-10, and we hope you had a great time with WCS Valencia!
