just bought my pass for it... kinda gutted for HuK that he has to play one of the best Protoss's in the world right now as its 1st game... but here's to hoping he can pull it off, and Jinro's game should be interesting he has alot to prove and I hope he does well.

Some of these groups are BEASTS.  Man there are going to be some intense games right off the bat.  

  1. Huk v san (PvP though =/)
  2. Inca v Ryung (oGs P vs SlayerS T, should be good)
  3.  Genius vs Boxer (Two old favs)
  4.  MIN VS JULY (Crown a new Zerg god?)
  5. FruitDealer v Ace (Am I the only one who still likes FD?)
  6. Killer (aka SangHo) vs Bomber (I still firmly believe Killer can take out anyone in a Bo3 if he tries)
Sick sick lineup of Korean players.

EDIT:  The only player I'm not seeing that is amazing is the new MVP Zerg DongRaeGu.   That dude was amazing in the recent GSTL.

I'm so excited, any time I can see the great zerg 4 play (July, LosirA, NesTea, Fruitdealer) I get warm and fuzzy inside.

Ticket bought.  SUPER PUMPED

Casters for the tournament are Tastosis and Moletrap + Wolf

I just hope that MC isn't knocked out in the first round again. It could certainly happen if he plays too risky against Alicia.

First day of the Super Tournament is in the books! It was a Terran day, two of the games are worth watching and two of them are not.

#11 Posted by Rayeth (1031 posts) -

BOOM! 
 
The new Code A team debuts in the Super Tournament.  I have to say Wolf is a pretty likable analytic caster.  Not sure that he and Moletrap have their synergies down quite yet, but I have hopes that they will pull it together as this ST goes on. 
 
As for the games today, nothing too unexpected (for me at least).  I expected the result of the InCa v Ryung series, though I didn't expect the jookTo vs anypro series to go that way.  No standout games in my mind though. =/   I can't wait for Ro32, going to be some sick matches there.

Wait what games aren't casted by tastosis? I wanted to watch the Team League, but I don't want Moletrap+Doa and I have no experience with Wolf.

The May GSTL is done by Moletrap and Doa. Tastosis and Wolf + Moletrap switch off days. Tomorrow is Wolf + Moletrap

@commandercup:  
The Moletrap + Wolf combo feels quite a bit better than the Doa + Moletrap combo to my ears.   Wolf is a much better analytical caster than either Doa or Moletrap was in that role.  That said they don't quite measure up to Tastosis yet, but given that Tasteless and Artosis have been working together for years and these dudes have had a week max, I'm ok with that.  They will get better as the tourney goes on.

The theme of the Super Tournament has been two good matches and two bad matches... today was no exception. I'll post the complete game breakdown for the past THREE days on my blog. Screenshots will come tonight!

 Alicia's force fields are on point!
I would put another picture up but I would be spoiling things...

Things we learned from the matches this morning. 1. 20 Rax is now the normal for PvT 2. Any form of Nuke will make Moletrap scream like a girl 3. A Nexus can take 3+ Nukes

@DerBrick: The sad thing is, he still had a ton in the bank, he could have been sitting on 30rax just to re-max faster. 
 
Mules not taking up supply is seriously going to make terran end-game macro crazy, especially if they are going to be massing marines or marauders.

@DerBrick: Any form of Nuke makes me scream like a little girl, as well.

This is why everyone on Boxer's teams are awesome.  Crazy crap like that.  It's like that thread a while back that showed how Boxer blocked in an SCV and a marine with a depot so he could keep control of a Xel'Naga tower.  They're little things, but they make huge differences.

It's why SlayerS are back to back GSTL champs

It's memorial day... what did you do? I watched some StarCraft 2!! Decent games today... tomorrow is a TvTuesday (thanks Onimonkii)

Curious why this thread went away, since we usually just stick with one per tournament.

Anyway, I was quite pleased with Wolf this week. I think he did a damn good job, especially since he probably did more solo games than expected. And I just realized his real name is actually Wolf. Bad ass.

everybody get excited, rainbow is performing at the finals 

#32 Edited by DerBrick (227 posts) -

Yeah, the thread did kinda go away. I started blogs because I wasn't able to do post after post.

Yes, Wolf did a good job by himself. If you're interested, you can apply for a caster spot with GOM!

Rainbow performing will make the finals 100% better... Yoon Hye and Hyun Young .... can't wait!

Mr. ESPORTS approves of Rainbow

I remember in GSL March where it was 3 Protoss and a Zerg. People were relieved as hell when it wasn't a PvP finals. TvT finals is fine by me. 
 
Its actually funny now that I think about it because all the Terran champions will come out from a TvT finals. GSL has some weird patterns.
