BY Andrew Miesner / July 24, 2013

Today compLexity StarCraft’s QXC will be flying out to Shanghai, China to participate in IEM Season VIII. QXC earned his spot at IEM by playing in the North American Qualifier, where he took second place. In the Qualifier QXC took out notable players such as Apocalypse, MajOr, Goswser, State, and fellow compLexity player Hendralisk.

Kicking off tomorrow, July 25th, QXC will be taking on the best StarCraft players from around the world. So far his group includes HerO and Jaedong, with one more player being added to the group once the first stage of the tournament is complete.

To watch QXC’s games, tune into the ESL Twitch.TV channel tomorrow at 9:00 PM EST.
