The V – Week #21

BY Andrew Miesner / July 24, 2011

Post Game:

Game 1: Crossfire SE
Both players started off the game with relatively common builds; Perfect going with the economic 3 Gate expand into Robo while Pokebunny used the “Tasteless Build” (Banshee harass into Raven, Tank, Marine push). One he mustered enough Siege Tanks, Pokebunny moved out and contained Perfect at his Xel’Naga Watch Tower. Perfect, who was up a base, just focused on macroing and, once his army was big enough, easily crushed through the contain. After dancing around at Pokebunny’s Xel’Naga Tower, Perfect managed to break the Siege line and win the game.

Game 2: Tal’Darim Alter
Perfect started the game off with a 1 Gate fast expand. Unfortunately for him, Pokebunny 2 Rax bunker rushed. Realizing that he couldn’t hold his expansion, Perfect retreated to his main sacrificing his Nexus. From then on Pokebunny was in the driver seat. He got his expansions up faster. All the fights were in or near Perfect’s base. Once Pokebunny was maxed out, he made one big push. Perfect never stood a chance seeing how Pokebunny had twice his supply.

Game 3: Terminus RE
Again Perfect went with a fast expand and, again, Pokebunny Bunker rushed. Perfect somehow managed to hold off the rush while keeping his Nexus up. Just like in the previous game Pokebunny was in the driver seat. Every fight was near Perfect’s base and every drop did decent damage. While Perfect so focused on his base, Pokebunny was able to macro like a champ. After several pushes, Pokebunny managed to wear his opponent down and win the game.

Game 4: Metalopolis
This time is was Pokebunny who went with the fast expansion and Perfect who opened with aggression, in the form of a Stargate rush. After getting a Void Ray out and a few Gateway units, Perfect set up a nice contain, denying Pokebunny from landing his Orbital. From there Perfect had no problem picking apart Pokebunny’s army eventually winning the game.

Game 5: Typhon Peaks
For the second time in the series, at the start of the game there was heavy lag, making it unplayable. The lag was on Perfect’s end, and he was forced to restart SC2. Rather than doing another regame (they had the same issue on Metalopolis) Perfect forfeited the map.

Game 6: Xel’Naga Caverns
Both players started out with common openings, a 3 Gate expand from Perfect and 2 Rax pressure from Pokebunny. Pokebunny managed to get a little damage done, but was forced to retreat back to his natural. Unfortunately for him, Perfect started Chrono Boosting out units like a mad man and made a quick push. Pokebunny was caught bunkerless and was torn apart by the Stalker, Zealot, Sentry unit composition. Perfect took game 6 tying up the series.

Game 7: Shattered Temple
Both players decided to get lots of units early on, Pokebunny opting for 3 Rax and Perfect going with 3 Gate. As both armies moved out into the middle of the map, they somehow managed to get to the other base without being seen. A base race started, and things were looking good for Pokebunny. He managed to get almost all of his SCVs out while killing all but 2 of Perfect’s Probes. Somehow Perfect managed to fall back to his base and with some amazing Forcefields, tear through Pokebunny’s army netting him the game.

Remember that The V is off next week due to MLG Anaheim. Be sure to tune in the weekend of August 5th to see is Perfect can hang on to his crown for a third week.
