If you're actually gonna compare him to Moletrap, I think we'll just have to agree to disagree.

Tasteless absent for a day and it's panic city in this thread

Am I the only one watching these games?
I've been watching almost all games live or with vods, just not posting much.
Spoiler:
maru looked solid and entering maturity after last 2 majors fiasco.How long till he gets crazy again (some replacement for proxy 2 rax).
MC played well for a game then it looks like he completely shutdown, like he was overwhelmed with multistasking.

hoping rogue is in good form this week.

Also checked IEM katowice page and group C is shaping like a group of death (serral/innovation/rogue).

Will serral ever go to gsl?

I think Maru fanboys are the only people on the planet capable of writing this post right here

(idk if you are even a Maru fanboy, but this post strongly suggests you are!)

he played (and crushed!) GSL vs the world last year because thats only a weekend commitment

of course i am. been a fan since he was like 16 cleaning up after mkp. prime terrans were always the best, and its sad byun is leaving.

but besides being a maru fan, serral has zero claim to best in the world until he consistently beats those who are. stats is better, inno might even be better, im sure hed get thrashed by korean zergs on the reg. theres probably 5 people in gsl id say he could consistently beat. yeah winning gsl v world was impressive, but that was like 20 games.

i think people who are overly hopeful for foreigners are the only ones that could write your post!

Serral also won WCS Global Finals and he didn't exactly beat randoms to get there.
GSL is prestigious and the overall level feels better than international tourneys that have slots for regional qualifiers.
Yet number of games to win a GSL season is as low(kinda) as the GSL vs world and other majors,it's just the way it is broadcasted feels like a ton of games per season.
The non finals WCS are meaningless, serral is the best foreigner without a doubt and won the 2 tourneys he participated in that were stacked.
Achievement wise this is very close of maru or better if you look at the prizes.

Btw I posted a while back I didn't like serral much cause he was too cold, but after his incredible year it would be me that was cold-hearted for not appreciating him.

tldr: im maru and serral fanboy

Goooo Rogue!

idk, no one argued that heavily against Rogue being best player in the world in 2017 when he won Kespa Cup to barely slot in to the last spot of Blizzcon and then won Blizzcon.

Except unlike Rogue, Serral dominated the competition in every tournament he played in 2018, including when he faced Koreans in GSL vs. the World (3-0 over Innovation, 3-1 over Dark, 4-3 over Stats) and including in Blizzcon (2-0 over sOs, 2-0 over Zest, 3-0 over Dark, 3-1 over Rogue, 4-2 over Stats) and including the bo1 in which he wiped the floor with your precious Maru in GSL vs. the World. He took the best Korea had to offer, chewed them up, and spit them out.

If Maru's so ****ing good, maybe he should try making the finals of a tournament that Serral is playing in. But I guess that's too hard for him!

let's not forget katowice where he finished 3rd/4th after going 9-6 vs koreans, beating Rogue 2-1, Impact 2-0, Zest 2-0, Trap 3-2 before eventually losing to Classic 0-3

Literally came here to complain about how bad rapid is as a caster

Probably not as bad as moletrap but Iím pretty confident most of us would do better

His weird gay and fetish jokes are also incredibly awkward. You can basically tell that artosis on multiple occasions is willing him to shut up.

Also I’m the biggest anti-foreigner fan out there and even I’ll admit serral doesn’t need to go to GSL to prove anything other than winning a GSL. I still think Maru is (and was) better last year but obviously I’m willing to concede that serral had slightly better 2018 results

if they both crush it this year, start spamming the big guys to get a 10k wta bo11 or w.e to go off at a lan they go to. im assume crowdfunding would have that paid for in minutes

lol, B and C are super stacked while Maru got the easiest group in history
Starcraft 2 (GAME IS NOW FREE!) Quote
02-23-2019 , 12:31 PM
+1 to group B wow

If I’m understanding this correctly, does that mean classic chose trap and dark chose hero over patience? And trap chose innovation over bunny?

If so, lol.

Maru > impact (who cares)
Ty> Gumiho
Innovation > sos
Dark > cure

Dark is gonna win gsl btw

lol, rough life for a lot of IEM participants. For people that didn't directly qualify for the main event, 64 players were split into 4 brackets, with 3 qualifying for the main event from each bracket.

Bracket 1: Dear, Leenock, Ragnarok qualify - thanks for flying to Katowice sOs, Keen, Cure, Fantasy, you can go home now
Bracket 2: Hero, Trap, Scarlett qualify - bye Alive (lol how did this bracket get ~no Koreans)

Brackets 3 and 4 are tomorrow.
