Jason “EVE.Yekke” Chan started to work his way through the competition, eliminating strong contenders such as Flash.Kyzer and nirvAnA. He faced Flash.Rev in the Winner Bracket final and fell 1:2 – but came back up after winning against another Flash player, Kyzer.
Revenant’s skill and consistent training really shone through in the end, as he defeated Yekke the second time around – and this time, he made sure that it was a clean sweep.
Southeast Asia Open four players who came out victorious in their respective regional online qualifiers flew in to Singapore to battle for two spots for the Asia Continentals -- Caviar “Mski.BENQ.Stellar” Acampado and Paolo “Mski.BENQ.Jabito” from the Philippines, Thanapol “MiTH.RedArchon” Kuachat from Thailand, and Soon Hua “Duskbin.Cobo” Tan from Malaysia.
A bad draw for the Philippine representatives forced teammates Stellar and Jabito to face each other in the first round. Stellar emerged triumphant and ended up facing a familiar opponent, RedArchon, who he has competed against many times in the past. RedArchon’s terran tactics allowed him to take down Stellar with a clean 2-0 score, pushing him down to the lower bracket, where he again had to face his own teammate (Jabito) after eliminating Cobo from the tournament.
With strengthened resolve, Stellar came back and managed to defeat RedArchon in two sets with a 2-1 and 2-0 score, claiming the title of WCS Southeast Asia Open champion!
