Nation Wars 2017 Grand Finals is the promotional episode in the fifth season of StarCrafts.

Plot Edit

The episode starts with spinning planet Earth, whose countries, South Korea, Poland, Germany and Canada, are highlighted in red. On the next scene, Polish red zerg swarm jumps into the battle. French terran marines march forth but the ultralisk unburrows and knocks the cyclone and siege tank using kaiser blades. American protoss units, colossus and adept, fire twin lasers and teleport-shoot with psionic transfer and glaive cannon, respectively. The corruptor then destroys the colossus in one smash.

Moreover, the creep spreads as Canadian purple zerg hydralisks carrying hockey sticks slither to the battle. German protoss disruptor dressed in Lederhosen outfit unleash purification nova towards the Mexican zerg swarm (while a hydralisk wearing sombrero plays with maracas).

South Korean protoss stalkers blink randomly. Norwegian terran hellion roasts red probes away. And finally the Korean red high templar zaps the marines using psionic storm.
