Soon a full year has passed since the first professional Starcraft II tournament in Finland took place at ASSEMBLY Winter 2011. Many might remember it from its ambitious 64 player line-up or the one-sided and quick zerg mirror finals where Liquid`Ret defeated Mouz.MorroW. Starcraft II has come a long way since then, abroad and in Finland, where two more professional competitions have taken place in year 2011 with the help of ASUS ROG; first of were the ROG Tournament at ASSEMBLY Summer 2011 with mTwDIMAGA crowned Champion and later ASUS ROG Stars Invite at DigiExpo 2011 with EGIdrA crowned Champion. The first year of Starcraft II in Finland and Nordic in general was with no doubt a success, but Starcraft II tournaments are constantly growning bigger and better, and we certainly have no intentions of being left behind. It’s time to start a new great year with ASUS ROG as ASSEMBLY Winter 2012 takes place in Helsinki, Finland on 24th to 26th of February with ASUS ROG Starcraft 2 tournament set as the main competition of the event.
