  • The Code S final, held at BlizzCon, was the first GSL finals to be held outside of Korea.[3] Gom later released a mini-documentary entitled GSL: To The Next Level, Start (free to view and in Korean with some English subtitles) focusing on Mvp, MMA and their experiences at BlizzCon 2011. The documentary also featured Artosis, Tasteless, NesTea, Ryung, DongRaeGu and more.
