Nerchio wins Homestory Cup V over YongHwa

General Radoslav “Nydra” Kolev

Artur "Nerchio" Bloch is the new Homestory Cup champion as he defeats IM_YongHwa to grab the $10,000 check. The Korean protoss fell 4-1 to the Polish zerg, unable to take revenge for his group stage loss against him.

YongHwa tried a multitude of mid-game harass tactics but just like in his match against MC, Nerchio was downright invulnerable and the DT rushes and double stargate voidrays only backfired horribly for the protoss.

Aside from the massive first place prize of $10,000, Nerchio's first major win for 2012 also secured him a seed into the IEM Season VII World Championship.

Homestory Cup V Standings
1. Poland Nerchio, $10.000
2. Korea YongHwa, $6.500
3. Korea MC, $3.000
4. Korea Golden, $2.000
