Re: Starcraft 2 (GAME IS NOW FREE!)

Fwiw, gsl is on first, so maybe watch that first. Especially if you listen to tastoisis who could spoil it. Who knows.

On that note, maybe I'm forgetting, but has gsl and asl been on the same night before?

I was not excited for a TvT but checked it out with it being on early, good series so far!

Flash/Soma series was worth the watch. Not too many games going beyond tier 2 tech so not a huge time sink either

Re: Starcraft 2 (GAME IS NOW FREE!)

With the natural being in the backdoor and with there being no easy way for Zerg to attack that prior to mutas it's much better to just stick a gateway in between the neutral buildings and wall off that way, continuing to block with the first pylon + zealots

Re: Starcraft 2 (GAME IS NOW FREE!)

Yes that's my understanding of protoss openings on that map. No ffe or rather, no need for it like on every other map. The tech comes out so much faster.

Re: Starcraft 2 (GAME IS NOW FREE!)

So do you just gamble that you don't play against 9pool speed like Soma did, or did Flash just mess up the defense? It looked like Flash had pretty much zero chance to prevent the lings getting in his base, and that's even with Soma initially sending his lings to the wrong spawn location.

Re: Starcraft 2 (GAME IS NOW FREE!)

I'm not sure why flash didn't bring probes to help wall, or retreat his zealots to the buildings as opposed to the ramp. He even scouted additional lings, though not ling speed. Dunno.

had this thought about halfway through asl, spoiler alerts, but they actually didnt spoil.

it happens fairly often and they usually mention it. mostly the saturdays i think

Build order wins have been a thing since forever though, don't think that wall seemed optimal in any case as the gap between pylon/gateway didn't look ling tight at all

Also got to think that Soma is playing vs random, nobody seems to go 12h ZvZ nowadays so 9p speed wouldn't work if Flash rolled zerg and it's a pretty crappy build against terran as well, so it's even more reasonable to think that Soma would go pool on 12 at the earliest

I hope Flash keeps playing random solely for the face cam reactions of his opponents when they find out he rolled Terran.

Do we know when the next GSL SuperTournament will be?

At the end of the ASL finals they said it would be announced "soon"

Re: Starcraft 2 (GAME IS NOW FREE!)

Anybody interested in doing a bracket pool with me?

Fill out a bracket before the tournament. 2 points for Ro8, 3 points for Ro4, 5 points for finalists, 8 points for calling the champ

I'm thinking $20, winner take all unless we get more than 5 or so
