Just so we're clear, Innovation beat DARK 2-0 in the Ro16... TWICE
Then of course DRG takes down Inno 3-0
Dogs and cats living together... MASS HYSTERIA
Also a tad disappointed by what we saw from Dream. I thought he looked very sharp in the Ro16... I was wondering if he was gonna pull a Cure and make an out of nowhere run that forces us to re-evaluate where we have him in the Terran hierarchy.
Then Rogue reminded us that he's won plenty of big games before.
^ I can't click that yet because I don't know which series you're talking about
Ro8 match 1:
I can't tell if inno's typical parade push game was just not up to its usual standard or if DRG is some kind of superhuman
lol sorry - Ro8 M1
DRG does look sick, though. the way he used the lings both in the game to bait the widow mines/cyclone shots and then clean up with the mutas, as well as when he would use the mutas as bait to get the thors out in the open before surrounding them with lings, was really impressive
also this may be wrong but it seemed to me in addition to baiting the thors to be OOP, he would make it so the thor's first shot would be to a ground unit which allowed his mutas to get off an uninterrupted volley before it switched its targeting
I certainly hope the semifinals are better than those games. Three 3-0s and
a 3-1? The Parting/TY series was entertaining but still more or less a bop, and I don't even know what to make of Stats/Trap.
It'll be interesting to see how TY/Stats plays out given Parting and Stats are pretty close to as different as can be style-wise. Could see it being pretty close. If I'm Rogue, i'm heavily rooting for Stats as I don't see Stats beating Rogue in a Bo7 but I could see TY doing it.
After several disappointing showings, it really looks like Stats worked on his game, hammered out his mechanics... and looks strong, and very technical, in macro games. He adjusts well to new information and makes lots of sharp, tactical decisions on the fly.
Despite Tastosis' breathless praise, I'm not ready to crown him as "The Best Protoss In The World" right now... because despite their poor showings this season, Zest and Trap still exist.
I'll just say I'm happy as a fan to see Stats being the best version of himself.
I'd make Rogue a -130 to -160 favorite, but I'm rooting for STATS in this finals!
