World Cyber Games 2007

The World Cyber Games 2007 Grand Finals were held from October 3rd-7th, 2007 at in Seattle, Washington, USA. This marked the second time the WCG would be held in the United States, with the WCG 2004 Grand Finals held in San Francisco three years earlier. WCG organizers hoped the Seattle event would match the 40,000 spectators that were drawn the year before at WCG 2006 in Monza, Italy, if not the 55,000 strong who attended WCG 2005 in Singapore.

Inside the Qwest Field Event Center, approximately 700 participants representing 74 countries competed across all team and individual events. The tournament cash purse totaled $480,000, with over $26,000 allocated for StarCraft: Brood War competitors. Spectators of the Grand Finals were able to watch selected games on two stage areas, as well as flat-screen televisions set up throughout the venue. For fans at home, online video broadcasts were available in a number of languages as announcers provided play-by-play and analysis of featured matches, including in English by GGL Wire and in Korean by OGN. Various gaming sites, such as Meet Your Makers, Gosu Gamers, and Game Riot and a number of fans were able to provide on-site reporting and accounts of their experience, given the relative ease of travel to this US-based location, enabling distant fans access to a wide range of coverage.

After a variety of National Qualifiers from March through September 2007, the Grand Finals welcomed 35 Brood War finalists from 26 countries. The most represented countries were South Korea, Germany, Russia, China, the United States, and Poland. Italy and Bulgaria were also well-represented with two participants each. A few countries would by represented by participants for the first time in a WCG, including Belarus and Trinidad and Tobago. Leading up to the WCG 2007 Grand Finals, a number of players had garnered attention for their play heading into the contest. Some participants made valiant efforts but fell short in WCG 2005-2006, while others were newcomers who quickly rose up the ranks in either international play. Notable Korean participants included  South Korea Zerg sAviOr,  South Korea Protoss Stork, and  South Korea Terran Hwasin, while non-Koreans included  Germany Zerg Mondragon,  China Protoss Pj,  Canada Protoss Testie and  Poland Zerg Draco.

The Group Stage did not result in any significant upsets, with the expected participants advancing in their respective groups. It is worth noting, however that two Korean participants, sAviOr and Stork, both favorites for the tournament, would lose a game apiece during the round-robin competition, but these defeats did not affect their advancement to the Elimination Stage. In the Elimination Stage, however, sAviOr was defeated, and thus eliminated, by Pj, the eventual silver medalist, in a best-of-three quarterfinals match. Notably, this was the first time a Korean player was eliminated by a non-Korean player in the history of the Grand Finals. Stork's victory in the championship match would preserve the streak of Korean participants winning the Grand Finals in every year Brood War was held as an official WCG game.
