On April 6th the fourth IPL season will start. As you all may recall, Alexey was invited to the tournament as well. He will go there straight after the small tour through Canada.
Interestingly, Alexey will have to face the Stephano in the group stages, being their third encounter in the last month. It would definitely be nice to see the French player not go out on top this time.
White-Ra will have to face another dangerous rival in his group, MarineKingPrime. Interestingly the Korean terran player and White-Ra himself are collaborating with the company Tt eSPORTS. This winter, the guys meat and played several show matches on the TGS. However, the Korean still did not earn himself a personal mouse with his name on it.
Despite the extremely tight schedule on his tour through Canada, Alexey is seriously preparing for the tournament. Aides provided him with more than 50 replays of games from Stephano and MarineKingPrime, which should help him select the proper tactics for his games in the group stages. Apart from that, White-Ra is practicing hard on the American ladder.
In the other three groups, the situation is not better at all. All slots are occupied by top Korean players and Idra, one of the foreigners training in Korea. Further eight slots in the group will be rewarded to the winners of the Open Bracket consisting of 128 participants, so we can expect several more Korean progamers to earn more spots. However, in a tournament with a prize pool of $ 100,000 nobody is expecting weak oponents.
