StarCraft World Champion Beaten By 16-Year-Old Kid

Korean StarCraft player INnoVation is by far the best in the world since the first expansion Heart of the Swarm came out. But he just got beaten by another StarCraft pro gamer who's only 16 years old.

This stylish recap on Blizzard's World Championship Series channel summarizes why teenage Maru's flawless 4-0 victory against INnoVation in the ongoing WCS counts as a big success. If you pay enough attention you can see that the key to defeat INnoVation—besides playing with lightning speed—might be early aggression and not being greedy at all.


This type of drama is what makes StarCraft II awesome as an eSport.
