Serral's rampage through the 2018 WCS Circuit continued over the first two days of WCS Montreal, as the Finnish phenom arrived comfortably in the quarterfinals. Three matches away from completing an unprecedented Circuit grand slam, Serral will face a mixed field of familiar and unexpected challengers on the final day of the tournament.
ShoWTimE, HeRoMarinE, Lambo, uThermal, and Reynor have all reached the RO8 or higher this year, but they are joined by two quarterfinal newcomers in Scarlett and TIME. Scarlett failed to replicate her success in Korea (an IEM PyeongChang championship and RO8 run in Code S) on the WCS Circuit, and WCS Montreal marks her first time making it out of the RO16 on the 2018 Circuit. Meanwhile, TIME made a breakthrough for both himself and Chinese StarCraft II, becoming the first Chinese player to reach a WCS top 8 since MacSed in 2013.
WCS Montreal will conclude on Sunday, Sep 09 2:00pm GMT (GMT+00:00)
