There can only be one player: Byun ‚Byun‘ Hyun Woo leads the Starcraft 2 World Ranking for the fourth month in a row – and his lead is amazing.
Byun just played one tournament in February – but of course he won it. The 23-year-old Korean remains the best Starcraft player in the world by a huge margin. Even a major title wouldn’t let his closest predators Snute and Nerchio pass him. It’s the fourth consecutive month for Byun at the top.
The Starcraft 2 World Ranking didn’t move much at the top this month. Only ShoWTimE and Polt switched ranks at position seven and eight. Stats was the best player of the month with lousy 166 ranking points – let’s call it the pre-IEM-Katowice-blues.
Just six tournaments with more than 500 dollar prize money
Just six tournament were held last month with the ESL ANZ Cup (won by Byun) and the two BaseTradeTV-tournament being the best paying with a prize pool of 1,000 dollar each. Aforementioned Stats and Nerchio won the latter, Snute, MaNa and MaSa the remaining three minor tournaments.
So there isn’t much to say about the Starcraft 2 World Ranking this month – get excited for more changes next time due to the IEM World Championships last weekend, which of course only count for the April World Ranking.
