Welcome to an old-school Saturday of WCS Europe. All four of today's group have been around the professional eSports scene for years, in case of Manuel "Grubby" Schenkhuizen for over a decade (although he wasn't part of the early days of StarCraft II, unlike Genius and TLO, due to his ongoing and outstanding success in Blizzard's other RTS blockbuster WarCraft III).

Except for Kas, every player in group F not only managed to get to the playoffs in one of 2013's seasons but also advanced to the international stage by reaching the top five. It's probably one of best groups in the entire round of 32, and the two inevitable eliminations will be missed once the round of 16 takes off in Cologne.

ESL TV's James "Kaelaris" Carrol and Shaun "Apollo" Clark are going to commentate all matches of the Premier League's round of 32 for you free in ad-supported 720p HD, with 32 players divided into eight groups of four trying to advance to the next round. All of this round's matches will be played online, and can be seen on ESL TV every Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday from February the 18th until March the 6th.
