This partnership will allow two of the very finest tournaments to enter a great partnership where the best up and coming players from Korea will be given a shot on the big stage and a chance at $20,000 in prizes! The ESV TV Korean Weekly (the qualifiers for the Grand Prix) has established itself as one of the very finest tournaments in all of Korea, and has become the place where stars are born. Players like GSL Code S Champion NsHS.Jjakji, NASL Season 1 & 2 Champion EG.Puma both have come from this very tournament, as well as other notbales such as SlayerS.Taeja, NsHS.Sage, SlayerS.Puzzle, TSL.Symbol and many many more!
Statement from ESV TV Owner/CEO Patrick Soulliere II I am very pleased to enter this partnership with ASUS ROG. I was always impressed with the product and tournament this orginization has put out in the past, and it made a perfect fit for the Korean Weekly. I feel the Korean Weekly is the true premiere weekly tournament in the Starcraft II scene, and would only like to parnter with the biggest and best companies around and ASUS ROG is in that category. They offer a great, professional, and well ran Starcraft II tournament, and those are the major qualities I look for in partner tournaments.
I think this will be the start of a long and great partnership and can't wait to see what great games the players bring to the table to get that shot at fame and $20,000!
