Starcraft 2 is a popular Real-Time Strategy (RTS) fictional video game created by the American developer company known as Blizzard Entertainment, also responsible for the creation of different well-known franchises like the Diablo and World of Warcraft series. The game story takes place around 3 races: Terran, Zerg and Protoss fighting each other for the dominance of a distant sector of a galaxy. All races have unique units and structures that may work for different styles of play and strategies.

Here, the top 16 Starcraft 2 players compete against each other in a single-elimination bracket for major cash prizes and the title of world champion.
