The V – Week #9

BY Andrew Miesner / March 16, 2011


For the third week in a row CompLexity Gaming’s CrunCher has managed to hold onto his title as champion of The V. In a decisive 4-1 series versus Evil Geniuses’ LzGaMeR, CrunCher showed the audience his wide variety of builds utilizing tactics like gas stealing, quick Phoenix harassment, Warp Prism abuse, and fast Psy Storm.

Game one was held on Xel’naga Caverns. CrunCher opted to do a quick Phoenix build, where as LzGaMeR went with a Marine, Siege Tank, Hellion build. CrunCher’s air dominance allowed him to keep Lz’s worker count low, allowing for an easy win.

Game two was on Shattered Temple and saw CrunCher utilizing Warp Prisms to warp in High Templar into Lz’s worker lines. Lz focused on a Marine Marauder build, banking on mobility to net him the win. Much like game one, by keeping Lz’s worker count low, CrunCher handily took the win.

Game three was on Crossfire SE. CrunCher went with a standard four Warp Gate rush, planting the pylon just outside the destructible rocks. Lz went with a standard Marine Marauder build. As CrunCher started to bring down the destructible rock, Lz moved his army out seemingly oblivious to CrunCher’s aggression. Luckily for Lz, by moving out just then, he forced a base trade situation. Ultimately through some nice micro, Lz took the win.

Game four was on Metalopolis. CrunCher went with another quick air build, this time mixing in some Void Rays with the Phoenixes. Lz decided to stick with the Marine Marauder tactic that netted him game 3. Fortunately for CrunCher, Lz went light on the Marines meaning CrunCher had complete visibility of Lz’s base for most of the game. CrunCher was able to tech to Colussus and bring down Lz’s army for the win.

The last game was played on Typhon Peaks. CrunCher went with a Four Warp Gate rush against Lz’s Marine Marauder. Thanks to some clever force fields and some quick micro, CrunCher was able to catch Lz’s army out of position and bring the series home.

Both players showed a tremendous amount of skill and put on some great games. Congratulations to CrunCher for keeping his spot as champion of The V. Hopefully he can make it four weeks in a row.
