Ilyes "Stephano" Satouri is the new champion of the North American Starleague after he levels SlayerS' Alicia to the ground with for an uncontested 4-0.

The first game on Ohana was the only one that resembled a proper macro game as the economic opening of both players led them to four bases each and well-upgraded, high tier armies. Alicia relied on having blink stalkers en masse combined with DTs to harass and bring down the additional bases of Stephano but at one point the Frenchman just had too many of everything (brood lords included) and rammed through force fields and wall-offs to break Alicia in two and take the first game.

Roaches and lings were Stephano's units of choice in the next three games and they were more than enough to finish off the Korean. Hitting every timing right and repelling every attempt of harass with stunning ease, Stephano recorded three more wins, winning the NASL Season 3 championship along with the $30,000 that go with it.
