Re: Esport Betting?

If Firecake can actually win this series thats so sick. It's looking like game 1 is overish he needed BCs for yamato etc he still has 2 full min fields but is barely using them

Re: Esport Betting?

baffling, now he loses the base before its mined out because he wasnt mining from it

Once my -1.5 is dead i'll be cheering for Firecake from here

Why the hell didn't ForGG mine out his mineral fields at the safe bases with mules, it's crazy

Re: Esport Betting?

ForGG has a sub 1% chance of forcing a draw but this could go another hour lol

He should have built BCs sooner he stuck on tanks way way too long and was retarded not to mine out the bases he controlled sooner

Re: Esport Betting?

ForGG is an idiot unless he's tactically doing this to wear Firecake out for the next game or w/e

Re: Esport Betting?

He made some ridiculous mistakes in the midgame not transitioning to BC/Raven and sticking on tank/viking/banshee for too long.

Oh well.

1-1 +0.01u today i'm calling this one over even though it could go another hour

Re: Esport Betting?

I am not sure what forGG is doing when its obvious he has no shot of getting a draw. Its just pretty bad mannered towards other players and casters to drag this one out.

Re: Esport Betting?

Not sure why forGG could not just play like this and take 2-0, instead of doing this retarded fast 4 CC no units style

Re: Esport Betting?

Yeah that was annoying. Whatever.

Taking Puck +110 here as my last play of the day which will decide if I win or lose today. May as well make it official although it's certainly not a high value spot.

Got some faith he'll bring more aggressive builds here and despite Firecake playing much better today I just have a feeling he can get it done

Not that confident in it but this last game seems like a flip despite Firecake winning the first series quite easily Puck is the play according to ali and he seemed confident in his interview

Re: Esport Betting?

I think Puck +110 is a decent bet. I wish I could take it but nitrogen rarely opens live lines. I think the format gives a huge advantage for the player who comes from the losers bracket since Puck has had two hours to mentally prepare for the match while FireCake just lost two chances of getting first position. I think this factor was also decisive yesterday with Happy playing for four hours straight while Pig had two hours to prepare while watchin Happy's TvZ

Re: Esport Betting?

Was yelling at the screen for him to build tempests. Tempest good unit. Good spot now imo despite Firecake being super-death-maxed, Tempest/MS > all

Re: Esport Betting?

Firecake playing well with abducts. It's the one thing he's doing better than anyone. I'm not sure what the solution is other than try and win a war of attrition which will be tough

I don't know I always feel like zerg deathball with static defense everywhere is unbeatable.

BC/Viking/Raven beats it as Happy showed yesterday, although he did lose the second one but only because he got eliminated due to being out of position if he kept a flying building with his army he'd have been fine

Great showing by Firecake there he definitely deserves to advance more than Puck although I hope Puck gets the comeback obv. Was def on the wrong side of this one.

Re: Esport Betting?

My edge on this WCS stuff if it exists is certainly WAY lower than Proleague/Code S etc just due to lack of knowledge about the players

I could be wrong, but i think you might've put too much thought in pucks interview and his "momentum" after winning a horrible player (Sen).

I very rarely put any attention to what players have to say in their winning interviews because its usually delusional bull**** like "i've played bad, i could've done this this and that, i am 10x much better usually"

Re: Esport Betting?

Well i kinda clicked buttons on Sen, and then got owned by forGG not covering the -1,5. Its fine losing on Sen because it was really hard to know he is in that uncapable shape, but forGG loss was very annoying, he should've won that 2-0.
