DRG looked so good in G1, making a game of it after losing a billion drones to widow mines. Definitely thought he had a good shot of taking it if he just patched up that weakness. Unfortunately he just kinda rolled over in G2 and then tilted G3
Zerg contains on that map are weird since snow can take five bases on his side with no problem. We usually see Zerg do lurker contains against toss two or three base. With all the bases, why didn't snow tech into reavers or do anything other than just throw armies away into lurkers?
Credit to Armani, he showed a lot better than I thought he would. You could tell he put a lot of thought into his strategic approach.
It's kinda like a college football game where one side a 3+ TD dog. When you know you're a dog going in, you want to embrace higher variance and hope to run good. Go for it on 4th down, surprise onside kicks, etc.
The 2nd game, Maru got a little too cute with hellbats. The 3rd game, I liked Armani's adjustment of sending everything, except Maru readjusted and just killed all his bases. The long 5th game was fun, and though Armani wasn't always cost efficient with his lurkers he got the job done.
So I'm impressed he took 2 maps off Maru. It'll be interesting to see if he's really leveled up or if this was a flash in the pan.
This finals is gonna be LIT, if I were handicapping I'd throw my hands up and make it a pick'em
