Added to the schedule with the sweetener of a trip to France for the Esports World Cup (ESWC) Championships, the final came down to event favourite Muzza255 and Prodigy_V. Both chose Real Madrid letting individual playstyle decide the bout and it was Prodigy’s aggressive attacking game, winning 2-0 that earned him a trip to Paris.

Weathering a solid comeback in winners finals from from Iaguz, KingKong and his dominant Zerg army booked another Grand Final.

With a powerful economy, KingKong flooded the map with Zerg to follow his Brisbane win with a 4-0 victory proving himself head and shoulders over the competition.
