I don't see why this is a pimpest play.. :/
it's just a really really really close game, that's not 'pimp' at all
anyone could've mined those 8 minerals and won the game
when a game is 'pimp' it has to involve a great move which won someone the game
I dont know about you but this is the first time I see this.
The point is I'm not sure the people who demand that PP nominations require a new move unseen as yet and which won the game have actually seen the PP feature. It has a showcase of unusual strats, well placed tactics, and good GAMES overall. Starcraft is not changing in what its units can do at a rate that allows 10 new uses of units for PP and every single PP year has games which do not fit Twisted's definition.
Grrr...'s maelstrom game was pimp because it was an innovative tactic at that level of play and it took considerable skill to execute. A pimp play doesn't have to be centered around new strategies or unique moves, it can be old existing strategies that are used in situations where it should really be impossible to succed, but they win anyway with skill and because they have the balls to do it. (The hallu/arbiter game would be a good example, who the fuck pulls that shit off in a proleauge anyway?)
Or it could just be absolutly incredible micro used to win a figth which should be impossible. (Firebat rep)
