Not too many guys capable from Root to make it out anyways and probably none of them are expected to.
Well the brackets this time around tbh are really weak compared to other MLGs. I don't think there's enough Koreans signed up in the open bracket. There's JYP, Leenock, MKP, asd, TheStC, Heart, and Killer. Then there's weaker level koreans like Crank, HwangSin, Apocalypse, SeleCT (most don't even consider him Korean), and IceCream/Illusion.
That's 12, and theres 8 through the open bracket and 8 through the losers bracket. Meaning there will be at least 4 foreigners making it through. Plus, not all of these koreans are guaranteed to make it through. Remember last MLG when Zenio lost to like a plat league player and ROOTFitzy?
I do expect probably 2 ROOT players to make it out is I guess what I'm getting at. I'm also pointing this out to show that there will probably be some pretty weak brackets and some really strong brackets (as there always is).
Can't wait to find out what the brackets are today. I'll probably drop my predictions of who makes it out of all of them.
Ostojiy/Huk will probably be the best first round match up. I'm curious to see this MLG if HuK has adjusted his style a bit. I feel as though he's been having poor results because of all of his travel not being able to slow down and adapt a bit to the new patches/meta game. I feel as though due to his Top 3 Control he may begin executing more Stargate based builds that Genius likes or maybe Warp Prism based builds that Hero likes.
fitzyhere actually beat major, wow. i think illusion should probably beat fitzy though.
if idra beats maker then he's going to have to play a toss in the next round. would really like to watch that set, as he said on inside the game he's taken to a turtle-y long drawn out style of zvp that wins a lot.
wcs not going well for root. drewbie and tt1 already knocked out entirely.
nony got walked over both of his sets, don't know why.
MLG's production value is the second worst behind IPL's as of late. They just are not trying anything different and it's super pathetic. The "ceremony" or whatever you want to call it at the end is awkward and nothing more.
