I do not intend to produce an article per day... if only there were less awesome stuff to talk about !
Oops he did it again. Korea won day 7 again to conclude the clan war, Lyn bringing 3 more points beating Th000 (again), Life (again) and Infi (again again). Lyn arrived quite determined to the stage and was more than intimidating tbh.
Who wants to be next?
I wish there were some more suspense in these Euro qualifiers. Some are pointing Wan as a surprise eliminating Rudan, but Rudan does not play much anymore... or else not when I am watching.
I watched Arabrams play against Foggy and saw everyone being completely confused by his dual crypts + expo strategy on EI. Let me explain that to you because I do the same on Netease. I know my opponent is stronger hence some usual strategy will not work! He knows how to counter those and his micro is 10x better than mine. I myself do Dreadlord expo, or Tinker necrowagon : come Arabrams I will show you!
Anyway another full 2-0 group. At least there is no question about Foggy dominating group D. It will be very hard not to see WarchiefRich and Foggy being the last two men standing. I feel like Hawk, Sonik, Orcw0rker and Yaws will have a hard time catching up with them. They may fight for 3rd place (still 3,000$ to earn if bank transfers allow...). I hope they will prove me wrong!
For Cechi and Wan, it will be difficult to avoid 7th and 8th places. There is one more step between them and the ones above I think. Anyway, here is my prognostic :
You can discuss those in the comments. I may be over enthusiastic with Orcw0rker beating Yaws and Hawk but I see him playing often on Netease. When he does not over-commit, he is capable of beating many top Chinese players. And maybe his opponents will not train the Orc mu too much.
I feel like WarchiefRich can beat Foggy in the winner finals. And Foggy is capable of remembering why he lost and adapting (may I remind you about Lyn anyone?).
Good luck to all players!
I did not know much about Mo Cup before I met two of their admins at PGL Wuhan. The groups have been drawn and this is going to be awesome!

These are Ugri's prognostics. They are just my opinion : debatable articles are more interesting for me to write than factual ones..
