Game 1 SparxX vs SwaggerJack - Cloud Kingdome - PvZ
So I (SparxX) went for Nexus first. A few days back a good friend of mine thaught me a better Sentry immortal allin. Before this id always go forge first. Anyhow, i went nexus first and did my normal stuff. He on the other hand did a 1 base baneling all in. The sentry i made popped up right in time to lay down 1 forcefield, but it wasnt enough. Alot of lings streamed in and i sac'd my main base and moved all my probes to my natural. From that point on i cleared the main, reexpanded there and tried a sentry immortal allin anyhow. Against all predictions i actually pulled it off and won the game. Turned out the zerg did not have really good mechanics. Lots of supply blocks, no injects etc etc.
Game 2 SparxX vs BlinKor - Daybreak - PvP
So this was a PvP, my worst matchup. I decided to the best working PvP tactic i use, wich is a 1base colossus allin. The build is actually not bad at all, i move out with 2 immortals, 1 colossus and a bunch of stalkers. Sad thing was that my opponent did the exact same thing, wich meant he had the defenders advantage. I lost my first push. I tried to get back in the game by expanding twice really fast, but it was too late. He pushed, and killed me.
Game 3 Chia vs BlinKor - Akilon Flats - ZvP
Chia was up next. BlinKor went for Nexus first. Chia had a probe on the way for a proxy hatch + he made 6 lings. These lings did get passed the wall that wasnt finished yet, and barely killed the 1 cannon that defended the wall. The proxy hatch got scouted, and failed. The game went on in a macro game. Chia got 3 bases, and went for Infestor Ling. BlinKor was still on 2 base and went for a Mass blink stalker allin. The allin was scouted a bit 2 late for Chia. He engaged with about 40lings, but all the stalkers were up against a wall + there were 2 forcefields. The lings died pretty much. Chia remade lings, but it wasnt enough. The stalkers were too overwelming.
Game 4 Darrey vs BlinKor - Ohana - PvP
This wasnt a very heated match actually. Neither player was agressive, and as time passed on Darrey outplayed his opponent on every front. He had a better economy, better tech etc etc. When BlinKor pushed Darrreys forces were too much, and BlinKor was defeated
Game 5 Darrey vs JustInSane - Cloud Kingdome - PvZ
Darrey went for Nexus first. From an observers point of view, it looked pretty tricky. There were 6 lings comming wich could make it past the wall into the main base. And thats exactly what happened. The lings kept the probes in the main busy. Then the nexus that was still building in the natural got canceled, followed by a "LOL" from Darrey. This mistake had cost him the game, as the zerg went 2 base and pushed with the first 10 roaches he had. Darrey did macro back up to full 2 base eco, but he didnt have the tech to support it.
Game 6 Siika vs JustInSane - Daybreak - PvZ
While the CW was underway, i contacted Siika if he wanted to help us, because we were out of players!(lol) Luckly, Siika wanted to play and Fight for Starcade. JustInSane went for a proxy hatch, and it was unscouted up untill the creep started to show. Everyone at Starcade was pooping their pants, thinking Siika would lose. But Siika played amazingly, and defended it very well. JustInSane didnt execute the best proxy hatch either, wich is worth noting. From this point on Siika outplayed JustInSane and it was over for JustInSane.
Game 7 Siika vs Slavin - Entombed Valley - PvT
Everyone was pretty exited to see this match. Siika went for an early expansion, while Slavin went for 3rax MM with slow. Siika had to sac his natural nexus, in order to buy time for more units. With a good forcefield he cutted the army on its way up the ramp in half, and did great damage. After that, the terran retreated and both players started to macro. Nothing happened really, they ended up both on 4 bases before the final battle. Siika tried to do damage with a double DT warpin, but a missile turret finished right in time to counter that. Siika had a huge gateway army, with 2 colossi and a few High templar. Slavin had a huge MMM ghost ball, with 5 vikings. When the battle started Slavin carpet bombed Siika's army with EMP's, and everything got obliterated.
Game 8 Rokhorn vs Slavin - Daybreak - ZvT
Rokhorn played a normal game, took an expansion and a little bit of a late 3rd. Slavin went for a 2 base Marine Thor allin. Rokhorn was aiming to go for Muta Ling Bling, but before he could get there the terran pushed out with 4 thors, some marines and scv's for repair. All rokhorn had was zerglings, and with scv's repairing the thors there was no chance he would have won that. The thors obliterated everything, and rokhorn was defeated.
The end score was a 5-3 Victory for Team Oxygen.
