The 6th of April, Gumiho played vs. the GSL Season 1 Champ, Stats in the Ro16. They faced off where our Terran player was the clear underdog. Stats was hot off his win, where Gumiho couldn’t even get past the Ro32. Even before that, he finished second in the incredibly stacked IEM Gyeonggi where Gumiho wasn’t even able to qualify. Despite the odds stacked against him, the GumiGod played his own way and it worked. Here’s how he did it.
Some of you may remember our previous announcement about the 5th iteration of our tournament, it was going to be our biggest and most impressive event yet. Fusing KJ’s love for StarCraft and cars, sponsorship by Dell and Alienware, topped off with an amazing venue, it was set to be an amazing event.
A couple moments ago, GuMiho was able to advance to Round 2 of the StarCraft II StarLeague Season 1: Qualifier aka the SSL. He started by beating a Protoss named 젤리젤리 2-0, then Forte (or SalvatioN) 2-0, but lost against Stats 0-2 in the finals. Knocked down to the losers round, he faced Rogue who he was able to beat in a close 2-1 victory.
On the second day of the group stage, all of our members were set to play. TRUE and PiLiPiLi played in Group C, the so-called easiest group, while the towel-terran Gumiho played in Group D, the group of Death.
Cheer on our players at Intel Extreme Masters World Championship in Katowice, Poland! We are tied with TeamLiquid with the most players getting into the round of 24, with PiLiPiLi, Gumiho and TRUE.
Earlier today, the final qualifier for IEM Season XI – World Championship took place. Among many other players, our very own TRUE fought for a chance for a seed in the group stage.
