"We haven't even gotten through the RO8 yet and every match is already shaping up to be a GSL-finals level event. The absurd quality of this tournament is beyond compare. We took 20 of the best players in the world and only 8 made the cut. This is the cream of the crop, the very best that Starcraft 2 has to offer and by the time we get to the live Grand Finals event in Le Grand Rex only 4 will remain. We have already seen some astonishing games, we've seen legends fall and hopefuls looking for their shot at the top. Le Grand Rex in Paris is a fantastic venue for what can only be an astonishing show. Huge capacity, the loudest crowd you'll ever hear if what I've seen of French eSports is anything to go by and of course the best games. We'll have the pleasure of providing the English stream and myself and Apollo are completely hyped for it. Casting games of this calibre is a privilege and we hope to bring you all the excitement as we bring this tournament to a close in an explosive manner. Do yourself a favour and don't miss out"
