Due to no work today I was able to watch almost the entirety of MLG Columbus. And damn was it awesome.
We saw some major trash talking between Idra and MC, culminating in a show down in front of the stage to the cheers of the crowd after seeing MC hit back on form. MC managed to defeat Thorzain, continuing a rivalry that started after Thorzain knocked out the 2-time GSL Champion out of the Team Liquid Star League. Contrarily, Thorzain defeated Idra quiet handily 2-0 in a very decisive set. Slayers_MMA continued to steam roll every single game, showing impressive macro and micro over a long sustained set of matches. JulyZerg emerged from the open bracket and stomped almost his entire group, falling just short at MMA. Naniwa also continued to show us why he is the reigning champion showing incredible consistency and only dropping one series.
The stage is set tomorrow for the final conclusion as to who will emerge from the first true global LAN for Starcraft 2.In the Winners Bracket: Naniwa is set to square up against Incredible Miracle's Losira and Idra will take on the Emperor's apprentice Slayers_MMA. Down in the Losers Bracket: Can oGs MC emerge and extract his revenge on Idra, will July and Thorzain manage to come through the long slog of the Losers bracket to be the the 2nd player to rise up through the open brackets and emerge victorious once and for all.
