MLG Off-Topic Rant

So, who watched MLG over the weekend? I didn't on account of lack of internet quota (I had to ration it out so I decided to use it on Doctor Who instead).

What I did do is download the replays of the last ~6 matches and watch them myself. I have to say I am disappointed in Losira and Idra. Idra literally threw the game away, when he was in the lead. And in the other match he played, he would have pulled out ahead if he invested in just one more spine crawler.

Losira, so pro at playing zerg that he looks like one


As for Losira.... In my opinion, if you are playing zerg macro style and you haven't gotten either broodlords or ultralisks by the 20 minute mark then you deserve to lose. Don't get me wrong, I am impressed he lasted as long as he did. Losira worked wonders with those banelings. But against a tank-marining terran, you need to bring out the big guns.





Incidentally MMA played like a terran through and through. He played aggressively but always managed to transition into marines and tanks in the mid/late game in the typical terran siege style. And when he lost his tanks, his opponent's army would be obliterated in the process, allowing him to aggressively counter and slaughter his foes.

Slayers_MMA. Apperently MMA stands for "Mixed Martial Arts


As a final note, I do find it absolutely hilarious the championship match was between two Koreans. Usually an American wins the MLG (or Canadian in the case if Idra) but thanks to the GSL/MLG player exchange, these two Koreans dominated the tournament.
