The next event in the Intel Extreme Masters StarCraft II circuit takes place in Singapore, and is scheduled to run November 27 through December 1.
16 players will fight their way into the group stage of IEM Singapore through a double-elimination bracket. Bracket #1 features a potential rematch from a Wings of Liberty classic: Nestea versus San. In Bracket #2, Sase will battle it out against quality opponents like SeleCT, Curious, or Oz.
The players that make it out of the initial brackets will enter the Group Stage of the tournament. Each group features at least one fan favorite, with Mvp in Group A, DongRaeGu in Group B, Scarlett in Group C, and Grubby in Group D, among a field of seasoned pros such as XiGua and Bomber. Winners of the Group Stage move on to an 8-player, single-elimination bracket.
