Significant Players who did not qualify

GSL 2 Participants

KR oGsEnsnare
KR LegalMind

KR oGsInca
KR Bleach
KR BabyByeBye (a.k.a. SangHo)

KR Suzy
KR Garnet
KR 삐삐
KR ReXZanDarke
KR FreeDSL
KR Overthezero

The first name which leaps off the page is NaDa, the most accomplished SC:BW player of all time and top 8 finisher in GSL S2. Ensnare is also big surprise to not qualify as he made the top 4 of S1 and he along with InCa reached the Ro16 in S2. Chinese talent Loner finished 2nd at Blizzcon and in the Ro16 in S1. Sync (a.k.a.) Gilja is a former SC:BW pro who won an OSL and made it to the Ro32 in S2. Fellow former BW pro BabyByeBye (a.k.a. SangHo) made it to the Ro16 in S2.

Others

KR oGsTOP
US iNcontroL
CA KiWiKaKi
US Artosis
US TorcH
CA Liquid`Huk
KR Cella
KR Tester (a.k.a. sSKS)
KR SeleCT

The biggest surprises of this bunch is Tester by far as he has long been considered one of the best South Korean Protoss players and also didn't make it into S2, which was considered by many to be a fluke/underperformance. Following his is SeleCT, who finished runnerup at MLG Washington, and the man who mothership rushed him at MLG HuK, who also won MLG Raleigh.


Huge props to TeamLiquid for putting together a conclusive list of participants.
