GSL3 Round of 32 – Day 3

The third play day of the GSL Season 3 Round of 32 has been completed with the fourth day coming up tomorrow. As usual a bunch of games were played and a couple of big names have dropped out. This week we say goodbye to Sen, Genius and Ret. You can obviously find all those that made it through and the full results below, enjoy!

You can also read below about a few rumors that are going around which I, for the record, don’t believe. A fan thinks that GOMTV is supporting BoxeR by placing him, mostly at least, against terran players. Now, this fan thinks that, and may or may not be right, that BoxeR’s strongest matchup is in fact TvT. He points out that he is not hating or dissing, he just finds it a little funny.

One thing that is funny is that GOMtv has actually directly responded to this fans doubts and provided us all with an explanation, and some peace of mind. They say that they put top 4 players from last season in each bracket, then tried to split each race evenly into each bracket. And if they follow this method strictly all the brackets would look the same or be balanced at least. So right now apparently each bracket has 6~8 zergs, 5~7 terrans and 3 protoss. Interesting. You can read more about all this drama below, enjoy!

Naama Interview – Live On 3

With Dreamhack over, the Starcraft II tournament concluded and the players getting back to their normal routines it seems like there is one last bit of crazy to entertain us. The guys from over at Live on 3, who brought us the rather adult after show from MLG Dallas are at it again. They have a talk to Naama about his experience at Dreamhack, participating and winning the event. After that they have their ‘Pro-gaming without the fluff’  segment too. They touch on many, many subjects and well, as I said, it gets a bit ugly at times. Worth a watch, or listen rather, check it out below!

ZOTAC Cup #12 has come and gone with well known Protoss player ‘TheLittleOne’ taking the win. I have yet to watch the replays of the finals but with a 3-0 win I guess the games are not that great. I will update this post the second I watch them, though. It’s interesting that another Protoss won this week’s tourney, I am definitely starting to see a pattern form here… 

Cup #1:    RoX.KIS.DIMAGA 3-0 LLL.orly (Zerg)
Cup #2:   LLL.orly 3-2 MorroW (Terran)
Cup #3:   RoX.KIS.DIMAGA 3-1 MYM]DeMusliM (Terran)
Cup #4:   MYM]DeMusliM 3-1 RoX.KIS.DIMAGA (Zerg)
Cup #5:   HayprO 3-2 RogaloS (Protoss)
Cup #6:   GoOdy 3-0 Insolent (Terran)
Cup #7:   mouz.MaNa 3-2 Liquid’Nazgul (Protoss)
Cup #8:   ZpuX 3-0 Bischu (Protoss)
Cup #9:   mTw.Naniwa 3-2 MoMaN (Zerg)

Cup #12: Liquid.TheLittleOne 3-0 RoX.KIS.Brat_OK (Terran)
Cup #13: Coming next week.

The overall stats are now sitting on 5 Zerg, 6 Protoss and 1 Terran. That is just for the winners, if you count all the races that have made the finals you get  9 Zerg,  9 Protoss, 6 Terran, at least a few more Terran there than in the wins, that makes me feel a little bit better at least. Check out the SCII Beta – ZOTAC Cup for future updates.

The ZOTAC that passed this week was rather under the radar, a lot of the big names didn’t play because of all the patching and downtime issues on the servers. I have updated the ZOTAC page with the new winner. Terran has yet to make it’s comeback, definitely not enough blue on my list here. I have faith though, give the T’s some time. We’re sitting on 5 Zerg, 3 Protoss and 1 Terran.

Cup #1: RoX.KIS.DIMAGA 3-0 LLL.orly (Zerg)
Cup #2: LLL.orly 3-2 MorroW (Terran)
