    I dunno, watching Flash 3-0 another B-tier player and take his gold medal was pretty boring. If this keeps happening I have no doubt Flash can make good on his promise to win 3 ASLs in a row. Apart from the finals though it was awesome.

    yesterday scan talked on his stream about how rigged asl is and how bisu/flash always get non-pro players in their groups just to get to play games together, not sure if he was so butthurt about not going out of his group or actually right... Cause well it makes sense for asl to do that --> flash/bisu/effort get to play --> more viewers --> more $$$...

    Because his gimmick is doing cheese and trying to throw off unimaginative players by going outside of the meta. As soon as you run into a player like Flash or Jaedong that can't be shaken by that kind of thing, you get 3-0'd. His obstacle in reaching the finals (Bisu) was also a player that is definitely far better than him and was looking in pretty damn good form, but has historically always choked against Shine (and only Shine) for whatever reason. He got way further than anybody thought he had any right to.

    So going by rule established earlier in this thread it is going to kill AoE franchise.

    LOL what "franchise" are you on about. AOE 3 came out 12 years ago. The first AOE is 20 years old. Its already as dead as you can get.

    There's a lot of 1-trick ponies these days, who all got inspired by the WC3:TFT championship where Sweet (playing UD - a race generally considered to have no early rush capability outside of a mirror match) sold his fucking goldmine and necropolis to build a 2nd crypt and lich-rush in the 3rd game of the best of 3 final.

    Now, if you're already one of the all-time greats, and you pull crazy shit like that in the deciding match of the grand final, you deserve some praise. But 99% of the time, if a lesser player attempts that, they'll get found out and easily crushed. It's a weakness of the competition that the remaining 1% still allows a B or C tier player to fluke a win against an A-leaguer, especially as many tournaments don't become 'best of 3' until the semis.

    True. But the semifinals were on point. Flash's face when he gets 4pooled is amazing.

    Shine was legit good vs. Bisu. You have to give him credit for trying an unorthodox strategy, failing, then doing it again and succeeding against the same guy. It's a shame that he seemed to have absolutely nothing to do vs. Flash though.

    I mean all he really did was shut down two consecutive attempts at corsair-reaver by making any number of spire units and then deflected a rush in game 4. He wasn't good, Bisu just played bad.

  15. That's giving too much of a horror game vibe instead of a rundown millitary installation. Ehhh

    Seriously? DoK doesn't even pull 100 concurrent players on a weekend, where is that competitive scene coming from and what game are they playing?
