AlphaStar is the first Artificial Intelligence to defeat a top professional player at StarCraft II.

In a series of test matches held on 19 December 2018, AlphaStar decisively beat Team Liquid’s Grzegorz “MaNa” Komincz, one of the world’s strongest professional StarCraft players, 5-0, following a successful benchmark match against his team-mate Dario “TLO” Wünsch.

The matches took place under professional match conditions on a competitive ladder map and without any game restrictions.
