I think they still haven't fixed the thumbnail spoiling the result on their youtube channel so here's a direct link to VOD: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oPLSoFyVjes
Iíve been watching a lot more ASL recently - very entertaining but still donít fully understand the matchups.

Is Protoss the equivalent of Zerg when it comes to needing to be up in supply? Iíve heard them reference something similar a few times and it almost seems like toss is the one with the swarms of gateway units that seem to be less efficient.

For my money Impact and Scarlett sold it the best. Honorable mention to Solar for the confident nerd move.

Some of the others need coaching.

finals in 20 min.

Spoiler:
serral vs inno
serral vs dark was good to watch.
he doesn't look as strong as last year but still he's there in the finals.
Inno had some great games (game 3 vs rail with a crazy move was something).
Maru is clearly in bad shape compared to his GSL peak, he makes some massive mistakes/slighty worse multitasking and the serie vs inno was not great.
Anyway really impressive that innovation is still at this level after so many years


1st 150k
2nd 40k

lol

I'm gonna give you guys a viewing guide for game 1 of the 3rd place match so that you can watch the good parts (which you should, the game is pretty good once action finally starts happening). Spoiler below outlines a.) what happens in the part of the game I'm telling you to skip b.) where you should go to start watching:

Spoiler:
Somewhere there was a screwup starting the stream, so we begin 19:00 into the game. It's kind of a split map, Scarlett has ~8 of the 18 bases on King's Cove, Maru has ~6, seems like he's turtling and playing defensively.

Eventually, Maru starts doing the hyper-lategame Terran thing of building ghosts and tons of nukes and just nuking the **** out of Scarlett's defensive positions to slowly but surely push the creep back and take over some of her more extended bases. There was a period of time where it was looking like Scarlett could get a mining advantage - she took the 9 o'clock base for awhile and looked poised to take the 3 o'clock - but eventually Maru takes both of those, and he's also doing about 10k better in resources lost.

He keeps advancing on Scarlett's positions, and Scarlett oddly...refuses to fight back. She picks off nuking ghosts here and there with fungals/abducts, but otherwise slowly but dutifully retreats everywhere Maru pushes. She doesn't do so unscathed - there's one or two juicy nukes that land, one kills maybe ten infestors, another hits her corruptor ball and takes out several, which becomes important in a mined-out lategame. Additionally, a single ghost in her main killed all her tech (she didn't send anything back to deal with it, so it got hive + spawning pool + infestation pit + greater spire) forcing her to rebuild it elsewhere.

Eventually this slow advancement of Maru's army continues until she's down to just a few hatches (like, around where her first 4-5 bases would be), seems like if she loses any fights she's dead simply by virtue of not having any larva left to rebuild stuff, even if she's got an okay bank still. And so finally, we get to a point where she has no choice but to start fighting his army.

Skip to 53:00 in the game, which is at 56:00 of the Twitch VOD. You're welcome for the 34 minutes I just saved you.

Game 1 of Maru/Scarlett
Spoiler:
Did I just witness some high-level poker in sc2? Scarlett knows the best she can do is draw, but when Maru offers one, refuses it so that Maru will think she's got a corruptor hidden away somewhere, giving her a shot at winning by a bad surrender. Or maybe I'm overthinking it and it was just dumb as the above poster said. At any rate one of the more interesting games I've seen.

Completely renounced to watch WCS, this is way to hard to turn on the right stream at the right moment to see the match you want.
One day these people will learn to post easy to read schedules for idiots like me.

Maru vs Dear:

Spoiler:
Game 2 was really fun to watch, I agree that Dear would have made things a lot easier on himself if he made a shield battery outpost for his tempests. Good micro closed it out for his only win.

Game 3, Maru's push on the 3rd drove a perfect wedge between Dear's defenses, was great to watch.

Game 2 was fun, but the better player won.


Trap vs TY:

Spoiler:
WOW Trap in rare form, he played really well this series!
