Despite to many complains that in Starcraft 2: HotS
Protoss race is weakest one - representative of this race became the champion of Dreamhack Summer SC2
. In the final Stardust
won over Jaedong [3:2]
after a gruelling duel, in which both players made agressive plays, all-in's and base trades.
Group stage at Dreamhack Summer CS Starcraft 2
is finished. Only seven players still stand tall in front of the first place, Jaedong
is the first to make it to the Ro4
, he awaits to see the result of TLO vs. Taeja.
Bracket is below
UPDATE: First Group Stage is over, the favourites had no problems in taking the slot for the second Group stage. Even if there are some upsets, as in the Koreans not taking the first place in theGroup, eventually they all made it out. Group Stage 2 will be played today.
The groups for the upcoming Starcraft 2 tournament at DreamHack Eizo Summer 2013 have been announced, out of the total 32 groups, only few catch an eye at the first glimpse.
For example we have Group 14 with Najzmajs, Sting and PoYo , then there is Group 15 with TargA, SortOf and MaddeLisk, apart from these two the rest have two pro players and two unknown players, but it's not hard to see some upsets.
The sad part is that a bunch of the Korean players such as viOLet, Polt, Symbol, DongRaeGu, SuperNova and monchi, Naama, SaSe, XlorD canceled their participation. To replace them, the organizers have brought in some local players and Life.
The action will start tomorrow, with the first group stage.
