WCS Jönköping brings StarCraft II back to DreamHack Summer

The next WCS Circuit event is just around the corner, as StarCraft II returns to Sweden for DreamHack Summer. From tomorrow, June 17 to Monday, June 19, 80 top players will battle it out at WCS Jönköping for a share of $100,000 USD. Up for grabs are also plenty of WCS points—vital for earning the chance to compete at the WCS Global Finals later this year.

A total of 64 competitors booked their tournament spots via an open signup, while 16 rising stars reserved their places after strong performances in WCS Challenger. Among the gamers gearing up for combat are top US Protoss player and WCS Austin champion Alex “Neeb” Sunderhaft, Finnish prodigy and Zerg master Joona “Serral” Sotala, German Protoss legend Tobias “ShoWTimE” Sieber, and Canadian Zerg star Sasha “Scarlett” Hostyn.

The tournament will consist of three group stages, followed by an epic playoff phase. Each round of action will be brought to viewers by some of StarCraft II’s most recognizable names:
