Last week saw Intel® Extreme Masters Taipei crown two champions: Kim “sOs” Yoo Jin in the StarCraft® II: Legacy of the Void™ invitational tournament and The MongolZ in the official Valve Counter-Strike: Global Offensive™ regional Minor. Through their victory, The MongolZ have earned themselves a ticket to the next stop on the Intel Extreme Masters tour: the World Championship in Katowice, Poland’s Spodek Arena (March 4-6, 2016). Additionally, both The MongolZ and runners-up, Renegades, have secured themselves a spot at the upcoming Valve Counter-Strike Major in Columbus thanks to their outstanding performances in Taipei.
