It’s KSL vs. ASL for StarCraft Supremacy at BlizzCon

10/17/2018 | Blizzard Entertainment

The top StarCraft: Remastered pro players in the world will step up at BlizzCon for a one-of-a-kind show match on the biggest stage in esports.

In this “KSL vs. ASL” event, the reigning Korea StarCraft League (KSL) champion, Seunghyun “Last” Kim, and the current AfreecaTV Star League (ASL) king, Yoonjong “Rain” Jung, will face each other in a best-of-five exhibition match that should settle all debate on who is the world’s top StarCraft player. The battle will take over the StarCraft II stage at BlizzCon on Nov. 2 circa 6:30 p.m. PDT, following that day’s WCS Global Finals matches, and will be livestreamed on BlizzCon.com.

This isn’t the first time StarCraft: Remastered has been featured on a BlizzCon esports stage; Lee “Jaedong” Jae Dong and Kim “Bisu” Taek Yong played a throwback match in 2017. Bisu won that one-off, but this year’s StarCraft showcase comes with a little more heat, as Last and Rain bring the pride and reputations of entire leagues with them. Jaedong’s rooting interest in this one should be fun to sort out: he lost to Last in the inaugural KSL finals and was bounced out of ASL’s fourth season last year by Rain.

Which Korean StarCraft league will come out on top, and gain bragging rights for (at least) the next year? Tune in to the KSL vs. ASL show match at BlizzCon.com on Nov. 2 to find out.
