The race to finish in the top eight of the WCS Korea standings and earn a Global Finals spot has become clearer following the qualifiers. Maru, soO, and Dark have clinched spots by winning seed-awarding tournaments, while Trap and Rogue are mathematically confirmed on points. The three remaining spots will be decided by how points the other contenders earn at the Super Tournament, and whether or not Classic receives permission from the Korean military to travel overseas.
While most of the Global Finals hopefuls managed to qualify for the Super Tournament, Dear saw his chances diminish heavily after dropping out in the qualifiers, while Hurricane was eliminated entirely from the running.
Super Tournament 2 will be held between October 3rd and 6th, with 30,000,000 KRW in prize money (~$25,000 USD) on the line alongside WCS Korea points.
