How Blizzard Made One StarCraft Fan’s Wish Come True

How Blizzard Made One StarCraft Fan’s Wish Come True

This is Benjamin. He has a kidney disease called nephropathy, and he really wanted to see a professional StarCraft II e-sports match in South Korea. Blizzard, through the Make A Wish Foundation, made that happen.

Benjamin and two friends were able to go to South Korea, play against his favourite SCII team, Prime, and attend the Global StarCraft II League finals.

Below, you can see Prime player Hyun Woo Jang (aka “Creator”), Benjamin’s friend, Benjamin, and fellow Prime player Jung Hoon Lee (aka “MarineKing”).

This isn’t Blizzard’s first teaming with the Make a Wish Foundation. The game company has made wishes come true in the past and raised money for the organisation by offering “charity pets”, such as a Pandaren Monk and a Moonkin Hatchling pet.

We hope Benjamin had a great time in Korea and good on Blizzard for making his wish come true!
