Choi ‚Polt‘ Seong Hun is the most successful Starcraft 2 player of all time. He passed Jang ‚MC‘ Min Chul by winning the WCS Winter Circuit last weekend.
112 tournaments in more five years
Polt now has earned 72,529 ranking points during his career compared to 70,671 points for MC. The latter didn’t play any tournaments from last May to December though and thus dropped to rank 92 of the Starcraft World Ranking whereas Polt is currently fourth.
Polt plays competitive Starcraft since the release of the game in 2010. During these more than five years he attended 112 tournaments of which he won 15. That’s only the seventh most but among them are three titles at WCS, the GSL Super Tournament in 2011 and the WCS Winter Circuit right now. He also won one MLG Championship in 2013 and the Red Bull Battlegrounds in Detroit 2014.
Polt will lead the World Ranking too again in April
Despite all his success the 27-year-old Korean has led the World Ranking only once in his career – in July 2015. But if nothing surprising happens this month, he should retake the pole position from sOs in April.
There is also no danger that Polt might lose the title as the best Starcraft 2 player of all time anytime soon. As mentioned his closest predator MC isn’t very active at the moment, as are the following one in the ranking, which are MMA, Mvp, the suspended Life and TaeJa.
