Two experienced veterans, two young newcomers, and only two spots available in the Ro16. Group C is looking mighty intriguing:
Name: Joseph 'Ret' de KroonTeam: Team LiquidRegion: EuropeRace: ZergRet is making his return to the WCS Premier League, having last appeared nearly two years ago in 2013, but the ever macro-ing veteran Zerg is determined to make his comeback in 2015.
Name: Hu 'Mystery' JiajuTeam: Currently Teamless/UnknownRegion: ChinaRace: ProtossNever heard of Mystery? Most haven't. Hu came out of nowhere beating MacSed, XY, and Cloudy to make his WCS Premier League debut. He is a Top 100 Grand Master competitor in KR however, so perhaps the veil of Mystery will be to his benefit.
Name: Alexis 'MarineLorD' EusebioTeam: MilleniumRegion: EuropeRace: TerranMarineLorD is yet another young up-and-comer in Group C. Having been pegged as the 'underdog' Terran for a number of years, MarineLorD is in his first Premier League and now is the time to show the world what he's got in him.
Name: Kim 'viOLet' Dong HwanTeam: Team EnVyUsRegion: South KoreaRace: ZergviOLet, another long-standing veteran, is back once again. Having been eliminated earlier in the year in Season 1's Ro32 (also in Group C, bizarrely), he is back for Season 2 and making Team EnVyUs proud.
