The Korean now sits in seventh place in the Global Standings with the win over MC.
MMA’s recent string of strong performances continued this week with a Season 3 title in the European region of StarCraft’s WCS. Mun “MMA” Seong Won beat Jang “MC” Min Chul 4-2 in a back-and-forth battle between two top Koreans.
The match began with MMA taking three straight games with wins at Akilon Wastes, Frost LE and Whirlwind LE. MC then roared back into contention with back-to-back victories on Yeonsu LE and Bel’shir Vestige LE. But MMA thwarted a big comeback by winning Game 6 on Derelict Watcher TE.
With the win, MMA got $20,000 and 1,500 WCS points. It also meant that MMA snuck past MC in the WCS Global Standings. He’s currently ranked 7th with 3,850 points, 75 points over his opponent. They’re both the highest ranked players coming out of the European region.
The WCS Grand Finals will take place at BlizzCon in in Anaheim, California on November 8th and 9th.
