Legacy of the Void: StarCraft Legends Archon Mode Showmatch

Legacy of the Void: StarCraft Legends Archon Mode Showmatch

With the World Championship Global Finals approaching fast, we’ve announced an exciting Archon showmatch that celebrates some of the most successful Archon teams playing today.  And while we celebrate the champions of today, we also look to celebrate champions of the past.  Enter the StarCraft Legends Archon Mode exhibition. On November 6, two of the most successful and well-known professional players from both StarCraft II and StarCraft: Brood War will pair up for the ultimate showmatch.

The first player representing the Zerg legends won three GSL championships during a two-year period and even had an award named in his honor due to his consistency and excellence. He is one of the most accomplished and innovative StarCraft II players of all time, Lim ‘NesTea’ Jae Duk. He will be joined by a former teammate whose aggressive play style earned him the nickname of ‘Storm Zerg.’ Reaching multiple finals during his career he has experience in premier tournaments that few players can match. Having won a StarCraft championship at the very first BlizzCon in 2005, beloved StarCraft: Brood War legend, Hong ‘YellOw’ Jin Ho will join NesTea and look to repeat that feat.

They’ll face a tough challenge as they take on two of the greatest Terran players of all-time. JungMvp’ Jong Hyun is considered by many to be the greatest player in StarCraft II history. A four-time GSL champion, Mvp’s trophy case is filled with premier event titles. Now at BlizzCon 2015, he’ll have a chance to add another victory to his list of accomplishments. Joining him is a legend from StarCraft: Brood War, one of the most well-known esports players ever, and with good reason. His dominance during the rise of StarCraft as a competitive sport was unrivaled, and his reign continued for so long that many began to call him The Emperor—Lim ‘Boxer’ Yo Hwan will be joining Mvp to take on their Zerg opponents.

NesTea and YellOw versus Mvp and Boxer—a match featuring some of the greatest champions in gaming history. Now these legendary players will take the stage once again to usher in StarCraft II: Legacy of the Void. It all takes place at BlizzCon . . . and you definitely don’t want to miss it!

The StarCraft Legends showmatch is part of the Archon Mode exhibition from 6:30 p.m. to 9:30 p.m. PST on Friday, November 6 at BlizzCon in Anaheim, California.
