Four more great foreigners join Iron squid
Artur Bloch, "Acer.Nerchio"
Nerchio has always been among Europe’s finest. He was good enough to be invited in Iron Squid I and came close to get out of the deadly group D. This summer, the Polish has shown that he was also able to beat Koreans and had what it takes to win offline events. Home Story Cup, DreamHack and IEM Cologne, Nerchio remained consistent the whole summer and confirmed his reputation of top foreigner. Now that he knows he can defeat Korean, he has more confidence for this Iron Squid
Sasha Hostyn, "Acer.Scarlett"
The mysterious Canadian has been one of the biggest stories of this year. Scarlett picks the tournaments she enters very carefully but does well in every event she plays. Breakout player of the IPL, she proved she was no fluke by winning WCS Canada and WCS North America. Scarlett is the second WCS Continental champion to join Iron Squid II and she is as ready as it gets to fight with the big boys in Iron Squid II.
Grzegorz Komincz, "Mouz.MaNa"
Way too used to silver, MaNa has broken his European Kong curse by winning DreamHack Summer. Building on his momentum he managed to get into Code S through the Up & downs but was pretty unlucky with the draw, ending up in one of the toughest group ever. Even though he was eliminated from GSL he did learn a lot during his travel and it is an over trained Protoss that come back for Iron Squid II. Remember that he defeated MMA, the future champion, in the group stage of Iron Squid I, his expectations should be even higher this time.
Pedro Moreno Duran, "Karont3.Lucifron"
The “Spanish armada” has been one of the hottest topics lately. The two brothers competing together at the highest level is one of the good stories of StarCraft. As one of the best Terrans out of Korea, Lucifron the eldest of the two, joins Iron Squid II. The Spanish was one of the best players on WarCraft III and transitioned very well his skills on StarCraft II even if his studies prevent him to practice as much as he would like to. Lucifron often peaks at the end of the summer, and this year he will have to extend his practice period as he will compete in both the WCS World and Iron Squid II.
