MC's fall completes WCS Korea Ro32
Posted by Radoslav "Nydra" Kolev 41 weeks, 15 hours ago
The final of WCS Korea Ro32 is over and after a long streak of protoss and terran victories, the zerg players finally had their say!
The day began with Genius against dreamertt and after SlayerS' new protoss acquisition dropped the first set after a poorly handled 1-base void ray, he recovered with a flashy bang, frying dreamertt's army with storms in game two and split him apart with perfect forcefields in game three to advance to the Ro16.
Squirtle against BboongBboong was just as one sided once the protoss got his mojo running. A standard 7-gate immortal push ended Bboong on Ohana without even so much as a slight stumble and a DT opening into an immortal/gateway centric army sent the zerg crawling towards the losers bracket.
With so many zergs falling to the losers bracket, RorO had the important task of both defending his race and standing up for his KeSPA brethren. After a long and intense ZvT against Hack on Ohana, RorO went down 0-1 as his ultralisk transition did not yield good results, especially with his mining bases being constantly under fire.
After a blue flame hellion opening that left RorO poor on workers, the zerg went for a 2-base muta transition, finding a small window during which he killed approximately 15 workers before turrets and thors shut him out. Just as thing were picking up again for Hack, he decided to make a move towards Roro's fourth which forced him out of position, the consequences being the entire wrath of the baneling/muta/ling swarm that tied the score. The scenario on Antiga Shipyard was painfully similar: Hack launched an attack towards Roro's base and found himself between an ultralisk and a hard place.
Once again, the highlight match of the day was left for last as MC faced Leenock at the end of the Ro32. After winning game one Ohana on the back of a fancy warp prism harass into colossus transition, MC found himself under heavy mutalisk pressure on Entombed that had him spinning between his three bases, desperately trying to chase out the pest before ultralisks arrived to put an end to the party. To put an anticlimactic cherry on top of the Ro32 cake, MC decided to skip his first zealot in game three, dying to a zergling all in as a result.
