Recently StarCraft2 Improve had announced their 2016 Spring Series with MnM backing the prize pool to help bolster the tournament and the UK & Irish scene.
SC2I’s article reports that this will be one of many events to support the scene this year, with a consistent schedule to replace the last year’s Summer Series which was cancelled due to scheduling issues.
As an organisation who’s roots are in the UK scene, I’m happy to help support tournaments like the SC2Improve UK & Ireland 2016 Series. Wardí does a great job running tournaments and I hope the support we give will bolster the tournament forward to creating a better scene.
