Team 1: China DK
Team 2: China iG
Event: WPC Ace League (G1)

The decider on who will finish 1st and 2nd in the long WPC-ACE League. DK was off to a great start but iG was able to farm enough items to successfully defend. Check out how one Deafening Blast won DK the game.

Team 1: United States Liquid
Team 2: Europe Fnatic
Event: Nexon Invitational super match

It's just a showmatch but this truly is a close game, including some epic facial reactions by n0tail. Do listen to the interview at the end of video as well, it's pretty gold. Game starts at 2:10:00 of the video.

Team 1: Denmark Mousesports
Team 2: Ukraine Na`Vi
Event: WePlay WB Semi Finals (G1)

There weren't many European games this week but game one of Na`Vi versus Mouz is definitely one to watch. The game is highly action packed and the score was kept very close until the end of the game.

Player 1: Korea HyuN
Player 2: Korea Sora
Event: Red Bull NYC qualifiers (at 4:04:00)

The surprise of WCG Korea Sora is the star of this game. Massively down in supply, the Protoss microes his gateway army against HyuN's ultras with stunning efficiency, picking them up with blink and psi storms.

Red Bull NYC qualifiers (at 4:50:00)

Once again, Sora calls upon the gods of micromanagement and defends Zerg raids he really shouldn't. Outstanding blink control and forcefield placement by the CJ Protoss.

Player 1: Korea PartinG
Player 2: Korea San
Event: Red Bull NYC qualifiers (at 0:14:00)

This entire series is worth watching not just because of the plays but because the action takes place on community-created maps. If you've had enough with the standard tournament pool, this is the series for you.

Team 1: United States ggLA
Team 2: United States Curse Academy
Event: NACL

Curse Academy continues to thrive on a composition that doesn't utilize a marksman. For a quick look at its efficiency, look at the Fabbbyyy play at around 32:40.

Team 1: United States Complexity
Team 2: United States Coast
Event: NACL

Two teams at the top of their groups and most likely to excel competed, and while the meta wasn't anything that was incredibly unique, it was a showcase of two top amateur teams with no gimmicks or cheese.

Team 1: United States Curse Academy
Team 2: United States NiD
Event: NACL

Curse Academy showed they are no one trick ponies and pulled out a surprisingly good standard game.  However, Napkins in Disguise showed a commanding performance as far as pushing advantages goes.
