In Starcraft 2, Solar grabs the Starcraft 2 championship after an amazing series against Parting. It is interesting to note that Parting was just one map away from grabbing the trophy (3-1). However, an intense effort from Solar enabled him to rally back and bring the series to the full distance. In the final map, Solar’s aggressive zergling opening was rewarded with huge dividends as the Protoss economy could not keep up with the pressure. This will be Solar’s second major title this year; the other one being the 2014 Dreamhack Open: Stockholm, where he defeated so0 with a score of 3-0 in the grand finals.
