The great prodigy of Starcraft 2 Riccardo “Reynor” Romiti he is officially champion of the IEM (Intel Extreme Master) di Katowice del 2021. Thus becoming the first non-South Korean champion to win a major in the last 11 editions. With a fight at the last Protoss, Reynor’s Zerg literally paved the defenses of opponent Zest. The Korean champion couldn’t do anything against our Riccardo who gets to win the major of Katowice and become Starcraft 2 champion once again after a resounding 4-2.
After a group stage that saw him come out in second place, his way to the final was studded with one victory after another. The Blizzard title phenomenon is once again confirmed as one of the winning athletes of our boot. With the victory of this major, it definitively confirms that we Italians still have something to say about Starcraft 2 and from now on the rest of the world will have to be careful to approach Reynor. His trusty Zergs led him to win a total prize pool of approximately $ 65,000 which combined with the joy in his eyes as he won the tournament.
Congratulations from the entire Starcraft 2 community and beyond immediately arrived. In e-sports we Italians still have a lot to say and surely Riccardo will carry our tricolor high for many years to come.
After being “crowned” as export athlete of the year, his promises were to play again at high levels and become even stronger, and we truly believe that all this has come true and that with this victory he has surely crowned one of his biggest dreams. So we just have to wish the best to our Reynor for his career, hoping to be able to see this type of event live again soon.
