Next week the Global Challenge Kiev will start and it is time to announce the groups for the StarCraft II tournament. Korea will be represented by TeamLiquid members Zenio and HerO, former Code S Winner MMA and Swedish pro Naniwa who is currently living in Seoul.
American qxc will replace DDE who had to cancel his participation. The case of Norwegian participant TargA is quite unique: He is currently living in Australia and participated in the South-East Asian qualifier for Kiev. Since no Chinese player was able to come, despite all efforts, and because Chinese New Year takes place during the event, DieStar from Poland will fill that last spot since he was next in line from the European qualifier.
