As we are reaching closer to the final matches of our second
round of the Starcraft II 2012 Intergalactic Tournament, we want you to meet
and greet our finalist in the Professional brackets.After three weeks of intense battles that started on July
4th, players racked up points week by week, to nail a spot as the final eight
players of our automated leaderboards. Now the top 8 players from the pool will
be placed in brackets, and these players will check to see who their opponents
are in the brackets, invite them to a custom game in Starcraft 2, and challenge
each other directly.Your host for the show, live on At7addak.com, will be none other than Rabii “RabbitoCom” Ghaith and guest caster Jalal “Ascalon”
Adra. These two professional Starcraft II players will be commentating every
single game live, giving you insider’s analysis of the player’s strategies and
techniques.The Pro Bracket players are coming from all over the region. First of them is UAE’s Ibrahim “Papoolee” Sherif, a Protoss player who
made his way though our ladders, reaching first place with a top score of 185
points.A veteran in the Starcraft II Middle East community, the first and only Grand
Master player from the Middle East, Papoolee came out as champion by winning our first round last month.
It’s hard to predict what to expect or what we will see from Papoolee, as this
player found himself in a lot of tough situations. Papoolee will be joined by
his compatriot, Humaid “Light” Alrasebi, a professional Terran player. Although
this is his first appearance in this tournament, we expect to see a lot from a veteran in this Arabic
Starcraft II scene.
Second in line is Mohammed “ProPal” Saleh, the only
Palestinian player in our brackets, finishing as second with 280 points. We see
a lot of potential from this young Protoss player, and will hope he can make it
far enough in our tournament.
The third player, and only Lebanese in the Finals, Ali “Mononoke”
Abdin improved tremendously from the first week, jumping from a mere 65 points
And all the way from Iraq, second place in our first round of this tournament,
Ahmed “Nesquik” Fadil has been quite a surprising player. Following the path of
“practice makes better”, this player is known to play with all three Starcraft
II races. Quick, but reckless, Nesquik has the bad habit of going all in most
of the time. Let’s see how far he can reach this time.
Abdullah “ReadySetFire” Albahou is Kuwait’s champion.
ReadySetFire made his way to the pro pools for the first time, and one of the
strongest Terran fighters on our leaderboards, with a high score of 190.
Speaking of Terrans, two other players will be picking this
race: Qatar’s “Brinsigr” and KSA’s Naser “VanMezian” Mazian. The latter has
been one of our strongest Terran players, and we hope to see him reach the
