PartinG wins Starcraft II finals

PartinG has won the Battle.net World Championship 2012 of Starcraft II in Shanghai

 

In a weekend that began with silken clad war-drummers and ended with explosions of glitter and a chorus of crowd roars, PartinG was crowned Starcraft II’s world champion for 2012.

PartinG (real name) Lee Sak defeated Creator (real name Hyun Woo) by 4 games to 2 in the finals of the first ever Battle.net World Championship 2012 in Shanghai, China. The winner picked up a cheque for $100,000 while his opponent left $40,000 richer.

Both PartinG and Creator saw off players numbered among the world’s eSports elite to reach the final, including fellow South Korean Rain (real name Seo Yong) who placed third in the contest. His fourth placed opponent, Tapei’s Sen, who became the home crowd’s favourite after Chinese player Comm was knocked out in the first round.

Seo Yong also announced his retirement from professional eSports at the ripe old age of 18. Still, he left Shanghai with $16,000 in prize money, while Sen had to make do with $8,000.
