This week was pretty unique. There have been 15 games played in three playoff days and out of those, exactly five were super recommended. And what's even more amazing is that it was impossible for me to rank them. So I'm just gonna list them in order in which they were played, but you should watch them all because every one of them was an amazing viewing experience.
First up we have Horang2 going up against the God himself. Being down 0-2 already in this series it was crucial game for Horang2 to win for his team. Does God bleed, or is Horang2's head just another trophy for him to hang up on his wall. Find out by watching this awesome game!
Next game up on the recommended block is from the same series on second playoff day. Stats and Leta played a game which showed us how exactly Brood War can be cruel and unforgiving. What seemed like it would be a regular game, quickly changed in a split second. I shall not spoil you what happened exactly, but I'll just quote a comment from youtube: "7:53 is not the start time".
To attempt to mimic the game, I'll leave this description short and sweet. Wookie, who goes by the unpronounceable name of P7GAB, and Hydra, played a game that you don't see very often. Without much spoiling, let's just say that at one point you could count number of workers of each player on one hand (and not at the beginning of a game where they both start with four workers).
The first three games were from the second playoff day and last two are from the third and final playoff day between KT Rolster and CJ Entus (interestingly enough, there wasn't a single recommended game from first day). The final match opened with some uneventful ZvZ, which was quickly remedied by an exciting game between HoeJJa and Leta. Leta opened the game with his trademark wraiths, while HoeJJa tried to remain calm and collected while he fended off the Terran's harass. The game spiraled from there into mayhem involving lots of plague, swarm, irradiate and all other goodies that TvZ matchup brings. Don't miss it!
Our last recommended game from this week is a rematch between Horang2 and Flash. Even the map was the same, only this time Flash decided to play not so standard. It was obvious that Flash prepared a special tactic for this game since he was expecting the same opponent. It's hard talking about this game without spoiling the first one, so I'll just leave you to watch the VOD. Also, if you just skipped to the first place in ranking, make sure to watch previous game between these two players. It makes this game much more exciting!
