Your WCS Korea Favorite Player of 2013 is:
Full name: Lee ‘INnoVation’ Shin Hyung Race: Terran Team: Acer
After convincing wins over HuK, Leenock, Rain, and MC gave him a solid third place in the first Heart of the Swarm major tournament -- the MLG 2013 Winter Championship in Dallas, TX -- it was anybody's guess what the (then) 19-year-old INnoVation would do in the World Championship Series. He came out swinging.
Season 1 of WCS Korea saw INnoVation defeat everyone who stood in his way, right up until, with a 3:0 lead in the best-of-seven grand final, Soulkey found a way to take four consecutive games from the pro formerly known as Bogus. With a chance at retribution on the line, INnoVation then tore through the field at the Season 1 Finals, crushing sOs 4:0 in the grand final to become the Season 1 Grand Champion.
He then continued to perform on a level that earned him the second-highest total WCS points in the world in 2013, with top four finishes at WCS Korea Season 2, DreamHack Bucharest, DreamHack Winter, and ASUS ROG: NorthCon.
