Classic, who had convincingly beaten Dark 2-0, gave him a better run for his money, almost breaking him on Cactus Valley with a powerful 2/2 timing attack that was only barely held. Classic struck back with the currently popular 7gate adept all-in to tie up the series, but INnoVation clinched his spot on Daybreak with a tank push.
soO, who looked outdone in his first series, came back impressively to take second place in the group. Once again he proved the better ZvZer in his series against Dark, with both games revolving around sharp roach timings. Classic again put up a strong fight, taking the first game with a big three base timing attack on Whirlwind. soO however strung together one important hold after another against Classic's very pressure-oriented playstyle and eventually managed to break through the Protoss defenses on Echo. Their deciding match on Cactus Valley was decided by soO's teching to lurkers and destroying Classic's economy, then holding on against a last ditch all-in.
