“The President of Protoss” Jang “MC” Min Chul (oGs) is now qualified for the Blizzard Cup.
With Moon "MMA" Sung Won (SlayerS) losing at the Sony Ericson GSL Season 7 Code S Round of 8 on the 23rd, MC has placed 3rd in the GSL Points Ranking. MC used to be 3rd with the GSL points with 8,665 points, but the things were going to change if MMA moved on to the round of 4.
MMA lost a very close game to Kim "Oz" Hak Soo (FXO) 2:3, losing his chance to qualify for the Blizzard Cup with having total of 8,268 GSL points ranking 5th. MMA would have moved up to 3rd if he proceeded on to the round of 4.
Because MC has been guaranteed with a spot at the Blizzard Cup, the players that have been confirmed to attend have increased from 6 players to 7 players. The Blizzard Cup, which is expected to open on the 12th will have the GSL Point Rank 1,2 (IMMvp and IMNestea), the IPL Season 3 Winner (Millenium.Stephano), IEM New York winner (coLMVP Dongraegu), MLG Providence Winner (FXO Leenock), and MLG Providence Runner up (coLNaniwa) have been confirmed to attend.
Now there are only 3 more spots left for the Blizzard. The upcoming Dreamhack Winter and WCG 2011 will determine those seats.
