TaeJa wins the MLG StarCraft II Summer Arena

0

This weekend, TaeJa (Terran) defeated Alicia (Protoss) in the MLG Summer Arena finals to take first place and $10,000! I do feel really bad for Alicia though, since he's come in second three times in a row now. While he's definitely "Mr. Consistency," I'm pretty sure he'd be way happier with a first place win. In time, Alicia ... in time. My favorite, Stephano, tied for fifth, but as always his hair was the true star of the tournament.

Six games were played in the finals, but TaeJa managed to out Alicia by a margin of 4-2. Alicia still gets to take home $6,000 and each of the top 16 players get a trip out to Raleigh, NC for the MLG Summer Championship on August 24-26th. Personally, I just want to see more of the awesome big screen. Seriously, watching the casters analyze plays from each game with a touch screen TV just like the one from SportsCenter made me feel incredibly warm and fuzzy inside. Kudos, MLG!
