Im still flabbergasted about Jaedongs absence here. Unbelievable. Part of it was due to roflcopter-failage in a rush and part of it was due to Baby playing fantastic.
Also, no Bisu. go.go made sure of that. Feels weird, but Bisu hasnt really been elite as of late it feels like. To bad, he still has it, but, it doesnt work so great for him at the moment.
Anyway, the groups are as follows with my favorites to move on in bold, or, not so much favorites as people I'll be rooting for:
Group A: Flash, hyvaa, Kwanro, Kal
Group B: Movie, Hwasin, Stork, BaBy
Group C: Calm, Pure, ZerO, fantasy
Group D: Shine, go.go, EffOrt, fOrGG
And it feels fucking crappy having Shine, go.go and fOrGG in a group, 3 players I really dont give a crap about. Damn Bisu, losing to go.go, no Bork-power. :(
But at least we have Stork, hell yeah! And he has Kal and Pure with him to defend the Protoss honor. Movie was in the finale last year and he was playing good, but, I dont feel anything special about his play. So I prefer Baby to move on actually.
I really like Pures play though, he makes alot of mistakes but is still playing so good. I think he can take another step or two.
Flash is the best player at the moment, he just is. It would be a shame if he didnt move on.
Effort is the only Zerg I wanna see moving on, abit weird, I like Zerg, but, no Jaedong, no Zerg. Effort is aggresive and entertaining.
Oh, and Shine, but, not really, its just that I wanna see fOrGG and go.go move on less.
Im getting excited, looking forward to watching this unfold.
I would hope for a Stork vs. Flash finals but I guess they're gonna end up fighting in the semis. And Stork is probably my favorite player, so, I hope Stork takes it all.
