Staz from the Philippines has emerged victorious from the global circuit that was WESG. He defeated Orange in the finals by a 4-3 score culminating in a Reno Mage mirror.
In his post-match interview, Staz spoke to taking a break after being denied a Visa for HCT. When asked about which players he was most worried about, Staz said most of the regions are well balanced but EU has a slight edge. Beyond that he didn't prepare for anybody specifically but practiced/studied for 8-12 hours a day in the three weeks leading up to this event.
In closing Staz spoke to the small -- but dedicated -- scene in the Philippines. He said that the five friends he plays with are all equally skilled and that he was lucky to be the one able to represent his country.
