Each week 3 games will be cast live on Z33K.TV, while the rest will be cast from replays and put up on YouTube and twitch for viewing. Below is a summary of some notable games that have been cast:
Team coL vs Frost
Our first series between Team Complexity and Team Frost showed us that even a team that was widely considered to be the favorite can have some rough moments. With coLGoswser taking game 1 against Frost’s Terran player Misery, it seemed like game 2, against another Terran, Micromancer, shouldn’t have been a difficult win at all. Unfortunately for Goswser, the Reaper harassment and mass marine play of Micromancer proved to be too much as Frost tied the series.
The third game, between Sasquatch and Micromancer didn’t end well for Frost, with Micromancer’s Thor and bio army being overwhelmed by the ling/baneling army of Sasquatch. Frost chose Protoss player, KU, to go up against Sasquatch, and unfortunately the Complexity player succumbed to the well played forcefields and relentless aggression of the Protoss army. The series being tied up once again, Complexity sent out their Terran player Trimaster, who then proceeded to take three games in a row securing the series for Team Complexity, 5-2.
Team nuBreed vs LAG
One of the most incredible series came from the lesser known Team nuBreed. Their lead-off Zerg player beGreedy displayed phenominal play, completely shutting out Team LAG 5-0. A major highlight was game 3 against LAG’s Verve. Verve rolled a decent Helion/bio army into the natural of beGreedy. The Zerg responded by running a fair amount of lings into the natural of Verve, killing off 15 SCV’s and crippling Verves economy. After beGreedy fended off the push of Verve, he then utilized his ling/baneling/infestor army to push back Verve and secure the win.
Team oGaming vs Team RoH
Our last featured series was between Team oGaming and Team Renegades of Hell (RoH). While oGaming put up a valiant effort, Team RoH took the series 5-3. One of the most noteworthy games would be the second, where the Protoss player, Zor, of oGaming not only denied his Zerg opponents expansion with a pylon, but instead followed it up with 3 cannons. This forced an all-in counter by RoH’s Cuch which unfortunately was thwarted by the full wall-off at Zor’s natural. However, after a nice recovery by Cuch and with the help of some crafty Nydus play, the Zerg was able run a sizeable Roach army into his opponent’s main. Following up with a round of 30 lings, Cuch was able to take that game.
