The first map was Cloud Kingdom, SortOf started in the top position while ThorZaIN got the bottom.
ThorZaIN opened with a reactored hellion expand, while SortOf went for a early 3rd queen and dropped down the roach warren.
SortOf dropped down a baneling nest, moved out, looses a queen, but continues his agression and his roaches and banelings moves in and hits ThorZaIN hard.
SortOf tried to continue pressureing, but has to stop because ThorZaIN’s defence is too good.
Around the 12minute mark, SortOf tried to go for a third while ThorZaIN put some pressure on and started building his third command center.
ThorZaIN going for heavy bio with medivacs while SortOf is going for a ling/bane/infestor.
ThorZaIN denied SortOf’s fourth and kept him at bay with a well spread out bio army and good pick up micro.
At the 19 minute mark, SortOf’s creep reached ThorZains fourth and with that, SortOf is trying to pressure the fourth a lot, while as thorzain moves out, scanned and cleared out creep. ThorZaIN adds a couple of tanks, and with 3/3 marauders he was able to kill off any ultras from SortOf. 1-0 to ThorZaIN!
Second map was Daybreak. ThorZaIN went for a expo, lot of hellions and some cloaked banshees while SortOf went for and early third. ThorZaIN put a lot of pressure and had a lot of map control while he went for the third. He worked hard to deny creep while SortOf starts going for a big roach ling army with some infestors vs the standard marine tank medivac composition. The banshees were still putting a lot of pressure, but a nice fungal caught them and one of them went down, second banshee continued to irritate. ThorZaIN tried to kill off the fourth, SortOf surronded but lost a couple of infestors. Banshee moved in to kill the fourth. ThorZaIN focusing on keeping SortOf on as few bases as possible (3) while the Zerg was going for broodlords. First broodlords were out, and SortOf was trying to push his Terran opponent back. ThorZaINs army was really strong, and SortOf took it on carefully but eventually he cleared it up. SortOf was going for ultra ling infestorm, while ThorZaIN was adding more marauders to his late game Terran army. SortOf was trying to make something happen by trying to flank ThorZaINs army but loses his army and it is 2-0 to ThorZain.
Third map was Metropolis. ThorZaIN opened with his reactored hellion expand once again while SortOf went for an early third as well as a macro hatch.
ThorZaIN took an early third as well even though he hadn’t scouted the Zerg. SortOf taking a forth where as ThorZaIN moved out with some hellions and marines. TorZaIN lost his units, but his economy let him macro hard, which had let him get ahead. Infestors out, drop in SortOfs fourth and got some free drones, where as the infestors met up with the surviving drones and cleaned it up. ThorZaIN got a lot of tanks, ultras and infestors moved in, SortOf lost some units but too few marauders in the mix from ThorZain made it hard to defend against SortOf. ThorZaIN tried to put pressure, but the lack of marauders made the engagements a lot harder. SortOf trying to go for nyduses to get the island bases while he went for broodlords. ThorZaIN sees the southern islannd nydus, and kills it off while as SortOfs maxed out ultra brood infestor army took the middle tower. SortOfs army is to strong, it crushes ThorZaINs and its GG. 1-2 SortOf – ThorZaIN.
The fourth map was Ohana. ThorZaIN went for his hellion expand one again, starting his command center on the low ground. SortOf was going for a roach warren, ThorZaIN moved in to the main of SortOf with his hellions, got some drones but lost his hellions. Roaches were moving out thowards the Terrans expo, forces the command center to lift off. Roaches goes back home, ThorZaIN got siege tanks while as SortOf went for his 3rd. Both players being passive, SortOf got his fourth and ThorZaIN playing safe off three bases. ThorZaIN moves out a bit, SortOf caught him off guard and its GG. 2-2
The fifth map is Antiga Shipyard (Forces Cross). ThorZaIN was going for the same opening as the last game while SortOf goes for expo first.
Hellions waited for some creep tumours, third from ThorZaIN very early and SortOf choose to go for his own third. SortOf got a good scout of the third command center. Both players went for 1/1 upgrades, stim was on the way for ThorZaIN. With infestors on the way, 2/2 started directly after 1/1 finished for SortOf. SortOf heading for hive, trying to hold middle while ThorZaIN was establishing an army. SortOf got some free tanks, food was even, three base Terran to five base Zerg. ThorZaIN started to drop, and tried to establish a fourth at the middle while as SortOfs creep spread was covering half the map. ThorZaIN were pushing hard, taking out two expos from SortOf while the Zerg gets some free tanks. ThorZaIN added up with a lot of marauders, as well keept the drop pressure up.
