[SC2] GSL Code S Finals July vs MC *SPOILERS*
So yesterday was the GSL Code S grand finals, and I think almost everyone predicted the outcome (MC won 4-1). July tried valiantly to defend the mass sentry forcefield abuse that MC threw at him, but he just couldn't hold on.
Forums all over are crying 'TOSS OP, FORCEFIELDS OP' but to be honest I wouldn't call them OP, maybe a bit better than they should be? A lot of people neglect to think that July was coming in as a big underdog, even the Korean forums favored MC (I say this because July is a Starcraft 1 player who has a big fanbase already, MC is considered more of a foreigner because he trains with TeamLiquid).
A lot of time July was caught with his pants down, being backed into a corner and then forcefielded to death. MC is just a beast, and kudos to him for winning, it pains me to see everyone trying to take this victory away from him, when he was clearly the better of the two.
I was routing for July, as I am a Zerg player, so I hope he can come back next season and perhaps the game will have changed by then, but until then, MC is the champion!
