Overview[edit]

The 2013 StarCraft Asian Open was a tournament held in Shanghai, China in late 2013. The organizers described the tournament as a collaboration between China and South Korea, with players from both countries competing. After initial online preliminaries in September and October 2013, the offline finals were held from November 29 through December 1, 2013.[1]

The finals were streamed online with live Chinese commentary by SCNTV. The ¥568,000 CNY tournament prize purse was one of the largest in the post-KeSPA era.

The tournament was also notable for the selection of sAviOr, whose participation drew some attention and ire from Korean audiences, as this would be one of the first and only public competitions in which he competed since being banned by KeSPA in 2010.[2][3]
