IM.Losira, the heir to the Zerg throne under Nestea his team mate. Slayers_MMA, The fast rising "Legend Killer" Team League legend, iloveoov in the making under the Emperors wing. FOXMoon, Warcraft 3 legend, likely looking to prove himself after a considerable slump lately.
The Open bracket is full of wild cards, most notably; Thorzain, TSL3 winner, all-round amazing Terran, showed us an incredibly solid but versatile play style throughout his TSL run, taking out FruitDealer, Liquid_Tyler, oGs_MC, Empire.Kas and Reigning MLG Champion Naniwa, it will be interesting to see if he can thrive under the intense back to back pressure of the MLG format. Mouz-Morrow emerges too, my favorite European Zerg someone who has remarkable play and consistency and definitely worth looking out for. But the God Of War too waits in the Open Bracket, ST_July also known as JulyZerg, Brood War legend and without a doubt one of the best Korean Zerg with a unique highly aggressive style.
I could write for pages and pages about the old talent but I decided to stick with the new, and give you a more general heads up and the newcomers to MLG. It will sure to be an entertaining weekend so make sure to check out the stream over at MLG. Look forward to a highly entertaining and hopefully problem free weekend of Starcraft 2 action!
Edit: Forgot to mention the brand new Tournament announced today ( that I even put in the title -_-), the Nividia Starcraft 2 tournament, casted by Day9 and HuskyStarcraft , $22,000 prize pool. Both amateur and pro bracket, sounds like a new exciting concept. If the HDH invitational, and Day9 King of the Beta are any measure to go by, it should be an amazing tournament.
