After three days ot intense competition, MLG
has crowned a new Starcraft II
champion at the Spring Arena 2: Korean player Violet. This not only secures Violet $10,000, but also a guaranteed spot at MLG's
Spring Championship in Anaheim, CA. next month. Fellow Korean Symbol took 2nd place with a $6,000 prize, and the third place prize of $3,600 went ot French player Stephano. I tend to have a hard time following Starcraft II
because I'm not that good of a player, but I'd love to see the Spring Championship next month.
