Maru took a major stride on his quest for a third consecutive Code S title, sweeping GuMiho 3-0 and clinching a spot in the semifinals. Maru had avoided facing Terran opponents in the previous two Code S playoffs, and his one-sided victory over GuMiho largely dispelled any doubts his TvT prowess.
In the last quarterfinal, Zest narrowly defeated Stats 3-2 in a match between PvP masters. Zest's victory sets up a rematch of previous GSL Code S finals, where Maru needed barely 34 minutes of in-game to defeat Zest by 4-0 scoreline. Code S continues on September 5th with the first semifinal: Neeb vs TY.
Neeb vs TY: Wednesday, Sep 05 9:30am GMT (GMT+00:00)
Maru vs Zest: Saturday, Sep 08 4:00am GMT (GMT+00:00)
