PSISTORM At Dreamhack Montreal – Day 3 : Defeat

IMG_5416

On the last day of Dreamhack, TRUE was to face off against the ever so frightening Neeb.

The first game gave us some hope, with a hydra/bane 3 base timing push, TRUE almost made Neeb crack under the pressure, but he was able to gold the attack by the skin of his teeth. Having held the attack and still having a worker advantage, despite some runbys and some multi-pronged attacks, TRUE was unable to even out the game. The protoss was able to take more bases safely, build up that protoss late game mothership, archon, high templar and everything else to simply walk through TRUE’s defences.

PSISTORM At Dreamhack Montreal – Day 2 : Triumph

IMG_5365

On Day 2 of Dreamhack Montreal, we had TRUE play his Ro16 match and potentially a Ro8 match.

In the Ro16, TRUE faced off against the french Protoss DnS. In a simple Bo5, our defending Dreamhack Montreal Champion was able to win in without dropping a match on Odyssey, Abyssal Reef and Interloper. Despite it being on a B stream, the relatively short series was casted by a few of the community streamers and was still entertaining. In game 2, TRUE did an odd 3 base 8 queen +1 melee timing attack. With standard 3 bases, TRUE continually made queens while saturating his third, all while getting +1 and overlord speed. Once he hit 8 queens, he flew to Dns’s base with a massive ling army and was able to force the french player out of the map.

A year ago, TRUE’s first WCS tournament was his only chance to get to BlizzCon. And the chance was slim, he had to win the whole thing. Previously he had not looked great in HomeStoryCup losing 0-3 to HeroMarine and just looked outclassed. His chances was so slim that he was ranked 13th in a TeamLiquid power ranking article leading up to the event. 13th for a Code S Korean competing in a WCS Circuit of mostly foreigners (the other 3 Koreans were Polt, Violet and Hydra) is a far cry from favorite.
