Down 0-2 in a best of 5, TRUE comes back winning the final 3 games against CJ Entus Terran player Bunny in the Code A match this morning.
TRUE stuck to his ling/bane style unlike many Zergs in KESPA even after the first 2 losses would’ve force others to re-evaluate the game plan.
In game 1 at Frozen Temple, his ling/baneling bust failed to do enough damage that the hellbat timing counter sealed his fate.
In game 2 at Dusk Towers, the 2 base spire was scouted by the hellions and he was forced to transition out to roaches against a superior economy of the Terran.
He turned things around in game 3 at Frost, a map returning to the ladder pool. Bunny mishandled his hellbat rush, not doing any drone damage, and was finished off by massive zerglings / banelings counter attack by TRUE.
In game 4, King Sejong was another resurrected map. Here it was again lings and banelings. A massive group was ready to go at the Terran natural, while he defended Bunny’s drop. Bunny was forced to go back but TRUE did enough damage that Bunny was forced to gg.
In game 5 at Lerilak Crest, the Nydus network was used as the aggressive tactic with zerglings and queens.. While it did not do enough damage the first time, the 2nd nydus with banelings evened things out and allowed TRUE to get his 3 base economy at a significantly higher lead over the Terran. A couple of overlords dropping banelings put his SCV count at 7, so Bunny could never really recover. After scanning 2 saturated bases, Bunny gg’d out and the comeback was complete.
Talking with Freeedom, TRUE simply said “so funny games today”.
In attendance was teammate NoRegreT and Scarlett supporting from the audience.
