Following a WCS-free week, the European Challenger matches continue. Starting today at 18:00 CET, the second batch of matches will again see twelve players advancing to Premier League's first round. Until Thursday, there will be four best-of-five series each day.

Day four of WCS Europe Challenger opens with last year's playoff participant of WCS EU Season 2 HasuObs taking on the young Israeli Adonminus, who's going to try to reach the Premier League for the second time after his debut in the third season of 2013.

On Wednesday and Thursday, three former Code S players are going to put Europe's scene to the test with elfi receiving probably the toughest task. The Finn has to face San, who just won the ASUS RoG in elfi's home country. Since the first batch of the Challenger matches resulted only in one Terran making it into Premier League, some hopes will be pinned on the remaining Koreans jjakji and ForGG.
