Cologne (AP) – 19-year-old Frenchman Clement “Clem” Deblanche won the European Championship for the Dreamhack Starcraft 2 Masters Fall competition. Terran’s player won his third title in a row.
Clem won the final in a best of seven matches against zerg player Jonah “Siral” Sutala (4:2). The Frenchman started the fencing one point behind because he came over the bottom bracket. However, Clem drew directly on the first map.

Serral then managed to snatch a point off the tournament winner, but in the end Clem won three maps in a row. “It feels really great,” Clem said in a post-match interview. “After falling into the lower category early in the tournament, I was a bit anxious. So I’m happy to win at the end.”
Gabriel “HeRoMaRinE” Segat, the last German remaining in the championship, came third. After a clean record in his group, the rat-sport player lost to Serral only in the final round of the top arc (1:3). He also missed his second chance in the final by defeating Clem (0:3).
Last full-time season for HeRoMaRinE?
HeRoMaRinE showed mixed feelings on Twitter: “I couldn’t show my best form today and it was played.” Even if the German thought he had a chance to reach the final, he was still satisfied with the third place.
Despite his solid form, HeRoMaRinE surprised HeRoMaRinE with another statement: “This was probably one of my last tournaments as a full-time player.” Next season, the German wants to focus more on his education, but will continue to participate in tournaments.
