The ESWC will have a varied games library under it's belt this time around featuring the like of: Starcraft 2 and DotA 2 as well as ShootMania, TrackMania, FIFA 13 and Tekken Tag Tournament.
Last year in Starcraft 2, Stephano had a very strong run dropping only 2 games the entire championship bracket. Crushing MarineKing at the semi's 2-0 and overcoming MaNa at the finals 3-1 to take the title and 26,000$ in prize money. MarineKing made a convincing victory at the bronze finals beating Grubby 3-1.
In DotA 2 we saw the powerhouse that is Na'Vi crush the opposition winning over monkeybusiness in the Semi's and beating EHOME 2-0 at the grand finals for the title and 12,000$. The bronze went to 4GL as they managed to defeat monkeybusiness.
