second rant: commentators using the phrase 'ace match' to denote the final set of every series.
pretext: the term/concept of an 'ace match' was introduced by kespa in 2005 as part of the new proleague broadcasted by both ogn and mbcgame. in order to make the best of 5 more interesting, for the fifth game (if needed to be played), teams were allowed to re-use any player on their game day roster to play in the now called ace match. unsurprisingly, this would see top players of each team be used, resulting in most of the time, a high-level match to end the day.
edit: ace match was also referred to as the 'closer', although i would have no personal qualms if a commentator used 'closer' in its stead.
my gripe here is this, why the fuck are commentators suddenly using the term to denote the final set of an individual league's series as an ace match when it has nothing to do with the original concept at all? it grossly frustrates me how over-used this term is becoming out of the wrong context.
just like the term 'bonjwa', keep it where it is supposed to belong, and don't misuse it.
in team leagues where the final set is determined by a blind picking of a player from the two opposing teams (so yes, the last set of the all-kill format is NOT an ace match) on a pre-determined map to see who will win the match for the day.
