With three Koreans and two champions in it, one could argue that the group of death of IEM World Championship Hanover is very easy to spot. A second glance at all the stacked to burst groups, however, would alter this first impression.
With the completion of IEM Sao Paulo (with Violet, Supernova and Ret as the top three), the player line-up for the World Championship in Hanover was finalized. A total of 24 players are divided into four groups, awaiting the tournament's start on March 6.
The tight know of SC2 excellency will be untied by March 10 when IEM will crown its Hanover champion awarding him the title of World Champion. The prize pool is of the hefty $75,000 so the stakes are indeed high.
