PG2: GanZi vs. Dimaga – NASL Wildcard

BY Andrew Miesner / June 22, 2012

UPDATE: GanZi was able to defeat Dimaga 3-0, advancing to the NASL Season 3 Playoffs!

Tonight compLexity SC2’s GanZi will be taking on the Ukranian Zerg player Dimaga in Day 2 of the NASL Wildcard tournament. While we have complete faith in GanZi’s play, it’s going to be a tough match tonight, especially considering Dimaga just took second place at Dreamhack.

For those of you who may not understand the Wildcard process, here’s the breakdown. The Wildcard matches “will determine the 8 players who will advance to the Playoffs to face the top 8 finishers in NASL Season 3 whom have already qualified directly for the Playoffs. The winners of the WildCards will be ordered for Playoffs seeding based on their seed value going into the WildCards. They will then be assigned seeds in the Playoffs according to this order. WildCard Seed 1 becomes Playoffs seed 9, and so on.”

Tonight’s match will start out on Ohana and then move to loser’s pick. The Wildcard matches are best-of-3s with each player getting one map veto. The map pool consists of:

  • The Shattered Temple
  • Tal’Darim Altar
  • ESV Ohana
  • TPW Odyssey
  • Bel’Shir Beach Winter
  • Antiga Shipyard
  • Daybreak
  • Shakuras Plateau
  • Dual Sight

During the regular season of NASL GanZi went 5-3, losing only to Huk, Vibe and Strelok. Dimaga, on the other hand, went 4-3 losing to HerO, SjoW, and CrazyMoviNG.
