GSL Sc2 Finals: Recap Of All Matches
Join 1000's of Authors at StreetArticles Today!

In this article ill be writing about the recent GSL Finals that occured for the first time at the Anaheim convention center at Blizzcon 2011. The match up between the GSL Finals was between MLG finalst terran player SlayerS_MMA and ranked one terran player IM_MVP. This was a great honor for Blizzcon as GSL is the biggest eSports tournament in the world and is the first time ever that it has been broadcasted and held outside of Seoul Korea.

MMA or MVP?

Although MVP was known for being game geniue terran player because of his build orders and overall strategies as terran, most of the viewers were rooting for the underdog MMA. I think that MVP was going into the game overly confident as being the number 1 ranked one player and thought he would be given to win this. As with MMA, he went into this game thinking that he wasnt playing against MVP, the number one ranked player in the world. This mindset seems to be the key to MMA's victory.

MMA Leaves A 4-1 Devastating Upset Over MVP

This GSL by far was the most exciting to watch. With the army of marines and two siege tanks, MMA pushed forward and took over MVP base leading to MMA's first victory in the GSL finals. Once "GG" was said by MVP, the crowd in Blizzcon went nuts! Roars of people could be heard over the broadcast and im sure if you were there you felt the energy of the people like you never have felt it before ever at any previous Blizzcons. MMA did the untraditional opener of match one by building proxy barracks and factory as the camera concentrated over his player booth with MMA using the Razer Blackwidow.

The second match up was held on Dual Sight, which for many of you know that this is a common GSL map. MMA made sure that he would stay in the lead and came through in this second matchup. With the constant harrassments and drops in MVP's main base, MMA was able to expand and contain his opponent until his economy was exploding.

After losing the second match MVP finally managed to comeback from his loss streak and beat MMA over a base trade scenario. Which leads us to the final match of the GSL Finals.

The last match was so intense that the thousands of people watching in Blizzcon were dead quiet as the match was ending its final minutes. MMA decided that he wanted to win GSL Finals with a bang and decided to make nukes making the crowd go crazy in Blizzcon as this is a rare oppertunity to see a professional player use this in a tournament. Another Base trade scenario happened as MMA and MVP traded and nukes started raining down on the map but MMA was unable to get a successful hit on MVP's "death ball" army. MVP broke through MMA's defenses and was destroying his main base but with MVP only having a command center left and MMA having a few barracks and other buildings this game was becoming very close. MMA wins by landing his vikings on top of MVP's unseiged seige tanks and the crowd goes wild!

MMA went down in history in this years Blizzcon and GSL Finals.
