Chronology

Overview[edit]

The 2004 HanaFOS CENGAME MSL was a sizable Starcraft tournament which ran from January through April of 2004, concluding with the grand finals on the 18th of April of that year.

The lead-in to the 2004 MSL was marked by increasing Terran dominance. One year earlier  Nal_rA defeated  Zeus in a PvP grand finals, but this year Nal_rA was the only Protoss to even qualify. In the 2003 TriGem MSL six months earlier,  iloveoov broke  YellOw with a lopsided 3-0, and YellOw was the only non-Terran in the Round of 8. As a result, this year featured a Terran-heavy lineup with some incredible killers:  Nada ,  iloveoov ,  TheMarine , and  Goodfriend led the charge. Zerg came in swinging with players like  YellOw and  ChoJJa , but the odds were good that we would see a TvT finals.

The tournament is not well remembered today due partly to the endless parades of TvT, and a lack of outstanding and enduring games. However, it featured a substantial prize pool due to its sponsors.[1][2]
