anyone else listen to the tasteless podcast? For some reason I can’t get into it at all but can’t figure out why.

On the other hand, the mapmaking episode of the pylon show was fantastic and one of the most enlightening episodes I’ve heard

Yeah that phrase was definitely unfortunate. I thought he said that he bought the book but never actually read it though (he also didn't actually say it was JP's book unless I missed that, although I did make the same assumption). And tbh JP's self-help stuff isn't too bad, it's everything else he pushes that is awful.

As for the actual Starcraft, the Ro8 series were decent but nothing special. Dark vs Ty probably the best series and Rogue vs Zest was entertaining because of how stupid it was.

I'm catching up pretty late - re: Maru's ro16 games:

Spoiler:
That super lategame game against Solar was one of the worst things I've ever seen from Maru. What is he doing spending 15-20 nukes to advance on, and kill, a single base? That was some of the worst cost effectiveness I've ever seen. Is that seriously the best option Terran has for combating a BL-infestor army??

Crunching the numbers, Thors will do more damage in splash mode against brood lords (compared to high impact mode) if the splash shots are hitting 4+ broods. When Solar's strategy is to have like 20 brood lords, and they're not really a splittable unit, seems safe to assume your Thor shots will do that.

Plus, what happened to ravens? The anti-armor missile thing would make Thor splash even more deadly. And snipe is a very effective spell, and much cheaper than nukes, that we didn't really see being used at all!

Kinda tilted he advanced, that game was so bad that he should have been disqualified on the spot

You know it's bad when even tasteless is making jokes about how inefficient he is cost-wise

What do we think serral's odds are at running the table at blizzcon again? I feel like putting at above 50% is absurd but it kind of feels like that.

Anyone interested in doing a blizzcon pool again like last year? super tournament is next week after which brackets should be not long after, so want to gauge interest.

Blizzcon ro16 changes this year:
- It will take place in Korea (ro8+ at Blizzcon like usual)
- Still GSL group format, but instead of bo3 each match will be bo5. Seems like a pretty insane grind to play up to three bo5s in a single group.



GSL Finals spoiler:

Spoiler:
Rogue says he won because Zerg is imba

WHAT ARE YOU DOING DON'T SAY THAT

I filled in blizzcon brackets

if classic doesn't play then TY replace him but I don't know how they will do the rankings.
I suppose everyone move up 1 spot and TY would be 8th spot?

Also some thoughts after the GSL super tournament, biggest difference between serral and korean top players is consistency.
Serral either wins or go top 4/finals (I think he was <top 4 like once? ) , when all koreans winners don't have streaks and the pattern this year was winners do bad the very next tourney.
GSL league is different format than week long tournaments (players prepare for specific opponents in GSL league), but even then there is no consistency in GSL either this year.

Sorry, I just now finished catching up on Super Tournament and have been avoiding the thread

I'm in for a blizzcon pool, but we should probably wait til the knockout round so we can see the re-seeded bracket.

Groups start tomorrow! Matches are Bo5s instead of Bo3s which I think makes everyone happy. Since it appears unlikely we'll be betting on the Ro16, here are my predictions:

Group A:

Dark>ShoWTimE
soO>SpeCial
Dark>soO
ShoWTimE>SpeCial
soO>ShoWTimE

Group B:

Maru>TIME
Serral>Stats
Serral>Maru
Stats>TIME
Stats>Maru

Group C:

HeRoMaRinE>Classic
herO>Reynor
herO>HeRoMaRinE
Reynor>Classic
Reynor>HeRoMaRinE

Group D:

Trap>Elazer
Rogue>Neeb
Rogue>Trap
Neeb>Elazer
Trap>Neeb

Can you explain a little more? Are you dying because your rush failed, or because they go a different rush?

If anyone cares, my rooting interest for blizzcon this year is

Soo>Reynor>Stats>Dark>Maru>Rogue>Special>Trap>ever yone>Serral>Time

So probably going to be disappointed this year when Classic gets Serral in the finals

Also very close to beat dark.
