The round of 32’s final show has been finished, with the last two spots – number 15 and 16 – at stake. MMA, the champion of Europe’s last season in 2013, was the top favorite for one of the two remaining spots. Aside from VortiX and MC, the Korean Terran is one of only three players who advanced to the season playoffs twice last year.
However, his European opponents were a bit of alright, too. In 2013, Welmu made it to the playoffs of the second season and Starbuck made it to the round of 16 in his very first Premier League season, where he lost to MMA. History repeated itself, when Starbuck lost 1:2 in the fifth and final match against MMA, who tripped over Welmu and almost missed round of 16
