Joona ‘Serral’ Sotala is a Zerg player from Finland. He is the brother of Jonne ‘Protosser’ Sotala, who also plays Zerg.
On April 23, 2013, it was announced that Serral had joined Ence eSports. He became the second StarCraft II player in their roster, along with elfie, who became, according to the team, his personal mentor.
Serral made an impressive run at 2013 DreamHack Open: Bucharest on September 14, 2013. After topping his 3-player group in the first group stage, he played against SuperNova, pal, and TargA in the second group stage. His match against SuperNova was not originally planned to be featured, however due to delays to the DIGMA vs. Flash series, it was cast on the main stream. Despite losing the series 0-2, his performance was impressive and was mentioned in the TeamLiquid.net tournament recap. After defeating pal and TargA 2-0 each, he advanced to the third group stage to play against three notable Koreans, Jaedong, CranK, and ForGG. After winning only a single game in the group against Jaedong, Serral was eliminated before reaching the bracket stage.
