Chronology

Overview[edit]

After this sound defeat of sAviOr in the previous season, Bisu was one of the favorites to take this tournament. He pulled through, winning 2 MSLs back to back. The finals were a dramatic PvP series between Stork and Bisu that went to the final game. That very game constitutes a huge "what if" issue, since Stork failed to research Dragoon Range throughout the entire game. As history went, Bisu went on to be the next Protoss champion while Stork became notorious for gathering silver-medals.

A major upset happened in the Ro8: sAviOr, who had reached the five previous MSL finals (winning three), was defeated 3-2 by TvZ specialist Firebathero. When the final gg was called, FBH performed a condescending victory dance [1].
