The first round of Korean pro players made a huge splash at MLG Columbus, and the League Exchange Program is now in full swing, with Naniwa, Thorzain and Fenix heading to Korea to compete in Code A August. The next chapter in League Exchange history is about to be written, as four more Korean pros will be heading to Anaheim to challenge the North American and European talent pool. Today, we are pleased to announce the first two participating players.

When a player from the League Exchange Program wins a Pro Circuit Competition, he or she automatically receives an invite for the next Event. We have therefore invited SlayerSMMA, the MLG Columbus Champion, to come compete in Anaheim, and he and his team have graciously accepted the offer.  We can’t wait to have him back.

Joining MMA is a player who, to put it mildly, you may have heard of. He’s a Brood War legend and one of the most well-respected (and feared) players on the scene. We’re incredibly honored—and excited—to announce that the second Korean pro who will be attending Anaheim is none other than the Emperor himself, SlayerSBoxer.

The final two participants will be announced shortly. In the meantime, grab yourself a League Membership so you can watch all the action on two streams in ad-free HQ.  And if you’re coming to Anaheim to compete, we hope you’ve been brushing up on your Terran-slaying skills.
