Rough first day at DreamHack – only Ret remains23-11-2012
It was a tough first day for the Dutch StarCraft players at DreamHack. Of the 10 players to enter the Open Bracket, none have made it through to the group stage of the main tournament. DrzPatjuh, NEEK, Harstem, LLLPoYo, Weiman, DrzWonnaPlay, ATGiant, SnOrLichiz, SnOrMol and SnOrPimmeh – we mourn their loss! Harstem came within earshot: he was one best-of-five away from going through, but Belgian player Feast proved too strong – beating Harstem 0-3. ATGiant was eliminated by fearsome opponent TomikuS in the first round, but Giant won the second game in the match by handily playing into the meta-game. NEEK’s run was ended by veteran player Naugrim, but NEEK too was able to take a game using a very brutal 2-base all-in.
At the end of the day the only Dutch player still standing was Ret, who is struggling for his tournament life in the groups. With four of his five group matches played, Ret is 1-3 in matches, and not only has to win, but also needs ThorZaIN or NaNiwa to lose against NightEnD, who fought his way into group D through the Open Bracket. Ret’s game against NightEnD is at 17:00h, make sure to watch! And follow our Twitter for frequent updates and live reports of matches!
