IEM Sydney Update

Two of Legacy’s Starcraft II players, Probe and Azure, have qualified for IEM Sydney and will have the chance to qualify for WCS Austin, Texas later this year. The StarCraft II WCS Challenger OCE-SEA qualifiers will take place in the IEM Expo Hall adjacent to the Main Hall, where the CS:GO competition will be taking place. Sean ‘Probe’ Kempen, who was a season one finalist, will have another chance to become the first Australian or New Zealand representative at the WCS global finals.
