MLG Showdowns on VODs: HotS with Parting, Rain, Fantasy and more
Week one was not only Korean-only, but also KeSPA only. Proven players Rain, Fantasy, Soulkey and Bogus were mixed up with one of the best ex-students of eSF - double world champion PartinG - to concoct an explosive opening of the competition.
The concept of the MLG Showdowns, for those unfamiliar, is simple: win your Heart of the Swarm match and you will be placed at the Winter Championship alongside Life, Leenock, Flash and Bomber. The WC itself, to be held March 15-17, will be the first MLG event for the year, to feature an all-HotS program of matches and $75,000 total prize pool.
Spoiler free VODs from the first week can be found just below and we'll make sure that our database is up to date whenever a new match is finished.
Contrast to week one, the days spanning between February 11-14 will have nothing but foreigners, Stephano, Mana, Thorzain, Sase and Snute among them.
Sase vs Snute
Nerchio vs BabyKnight
