Three legendary players are invited to Shanghai to compete in showmatches at the IP Banana Galaxy convention. Sky, Grubby and Moon will face eachother in this Saturday
When? Saturday, April 22 - 12.30 CEST
Three of the most iconic Warcraft 3 players of the globe are invited to play against each other in a series of show matches for the audience in China. It will happen during the Banana IP Galaxy event the Saturday the 22th of April which is 12:30 CEST.
Li "Sky" Xiaofeng is without a doubt the most influential figure in Chinese Warcraft 3. His back-to-back WCG titles in 2005 and '06 caused the big breakthrough of War3 in the Mainland of China and paved the way for the likes of TH000 and Infi. After six wins in premiere-tier tournaments, he stepped back from gaming in 2012 and has since then founded his own company called Taidu.
Manuel "Grubby" Schenkhuizen is the figurehead of European Warcraft. After participating in the first WCG in 2003, he managed to win the World Championship two times in 2004 and '08. All together, he claims nine premiere-tier titles to his chest, as well as the most WC3L titles during his legendary run with ToD, FoV, Creo and others as 4Kings. Grubby still blesses the scene with Warcraft streams every Saturday and Sunday evening.
Jang "Moon" Jae Ho is Warcraft 3. Nobody has earned more cash with this game, nobody has dominated like him and nobody influenced the game more than the "Fifth Race". 14 years after his debut, he's still a vital part of the competitive Warcraft 3 scene and is currently doing very well on NetEase ladder and AWL. He's still a force to be reckoned with and the big favorite this Saturday.
