Throughout 2018, Serral proved himself to be the most dominant force in competitive StarCraft II.

In addition to becoming the only player to have won every WCS circuit event in a single year, Serral became the StarCraft II World Champion by winning Blizzcon, the game’s most prestigious tournament.
