"IQ Cup" typically refers to casual showmatch/stream matchs between two Chinese Starcraft community pillars, xiaose and F91. What makes it fun for Chinese viewers are their full random vs random matches, friendly yet savage banter and constant slip ups in mind games and strategy, it remains some of the most popular content they produce since 2012.

IQ Cup 2017 - International is the first international event of IQ Cup series.
