IEM was a huge week for all esports fans, and part of the massive event was the Challenger Qualifiers for the Starcraft II World Championship Series, with Sheldon “Seither” Barrow being named the victor.
Seither and his opponent NXZ will now fight it out amongst the big leagues in the United States, representing Oceania at World Championship Series in Austin this June. Seither defeated Ryan “NXZ” Jones in the final match of the Qualifiers, and both players will get to represent the region, and get a shot at the USD$101,000 prize pool.
The Series will begin on June 1st, the second of four major StarCraft II Championship Circuit events in 2018. Check out the official series website for more information.
We wish both players the best of luck in the coming series and congratulate Seither on his victory at IEM Sydney.
