1st game julys baneling bust failed because of blueflame hellions, but so did mvps counterattack. Mutas came into mvps base before turrets were up and mvp didnt have enough marines. They sniped all the addons and after that july went in for an attack and mvp just didnt have enough marines, no siege mode for his tanks, no stim etc. so he got crushed.

2nd game july busted again. just when he ran up that ramp mvp lifted his barracks to get addons lol.

i dont understand this system, how come MC only has to play 2 games?

and july and mvp had to play twice? if they all played eachother once and mvp beat mc then mvp and mc wudda been 2-1...

mister[xy]
02-22-2011, 08:00 AM
well u need 2 wins out of 3 games to advance. Since MC went 2-0 he didnt had to play a third game. July and Mvp went 1-1 each, so they had to play against each other again to determinate who moves on.
I dont like that system too, because it can be quite luck dependant. I guess they want to prevent endless tie break matches that way.

Well on the other hand, if there is a guy down 0-2 and he still has to play a match, he could:

1. Lose on purpose to allow a teammate to pass through
2. Lose on purpose to allow a player who is considered 'easier' through for his teammates still in the tournament
3. If none of the above applies, you will see a demotivated player play his final game.

Does that mean you like him?

On-topic, some bad luck and a more than decent showing of July decided the fate of MVP it seems. Bad luck alone won't lose you two games, you need a opponent to do something with it. I wonder if July can go far, or if this was a one time thing. Before these games I wasn't that impressed with him, so let's see.

it's not even that, it's just there was nothing exceptional about july's play.. first game he hit some crazy timing, and second game he managed to baneling bust right when mvp was lifting off his raxes. I mean it would be one thing if July beat MVP by having a better macro game or micro game to showcase to the rest of the world but it felt like he got lucky, he doesn't seem to bring the same threat to GSL that a player like MVP or MC does. Kind of bummed out but whatever.

I haven't had a chance to watch the games yet, but maybe the skill came in the timing? I'm sure July has played his build many many times before and figured out the timing. If terran lifts his rax at roughly the same time every game then it sounds like July figured out the timing and the build to counter it.

If terran lifts his rax at roughly the same time every game then it sounds like July figured out the timing and the build to counter it.

He actually pulled back for 1 sec when heading up the ramp, I think he was literally shocked that the rax lifted at seriously the 100% perfect time for his push. I personally lost my breath when that happened, sad to see the best player in the world lose cuz of something like that. (though I see him making it through the up/downs easily. Also, maybe you should send a marine outta your base before you do such a risky move).

Best player in the world? He didn't even make it out of the group stages! MC FIGHTING

Strength
02-23-2011, 12:26 AM
almost sure that hyperdub threw the game he had vs MC, as if he had beaten him somehow, they'd have to face july or MVP which obviously could have easily been elimination for both the oGs players. no one goes 1 base for that long, lol (hyperdub). i obviously won't say that MC doesn't deserve a ro16 spot though, as he's clearly a top player.

i have to give it to july, even though he played a bit unstandard in both games, he did play them very well. mvp choked a bit with the lift/addons on the rax in their second game, but july probably would have broken the wall regardless. it's tough to say, but i'd july played extremely well in g1 and didn't mistakes in g2.

great games overall though, byun vs zenio was quite good. feel bad for zenio, i thought he had a silght chance to make it out of the group as he only had one matchup to practice but i guess byun and clide played brilliantly in both their series. byun easily becoming one of my favorite terran players outside of jinro and MKP, plays with good pace and style and doesnt afraid of anything. really excited to see if his tvp is as good as his tvz and tvt against perhaps the best pvt player in the world in MC.

EDIT: MC being one of the best toss players in the world* not pvt haha. corrected after fade's post :P

mm, cant disagree lol. i guess im so GSL (apart from the recent GSTL) biased that whenever i hear PvX i immediately think MC is the best haha. but yeah, squirtle is probably as good; if not, better, at least in pvt.

edit: actually, now that i think about it, MC's pvt may be his worst matchup.. but still a solid player regardless ;D

No. The up and down matches do not have a prize pool, nor are they a tournament. The bottom 16 of Code S and the top 8 of Code A are matched up (two Code S players to one Code A player) and two of each "triple" go to Code S, with the loser going to Code A.

So essentially, it's like promotion and demotion but in the case of promotion you have to earn it by playing people from the division you're trying to get to.
