Liquibition #1 featured the French Terran ElkY, against the Canadian Protoss Liquid`Crystal, in a best of 5 match. Elky won the match 3-1.

Prize Pool[edit]

Maps[edit]

The map order was Gaema Gowon, Neo Bifrost, Neo Bifrost, Neo Bifrost, Gaema Gowon.

Results[edit]

Game 1[edit]

The game started on Gaema Gowon with Elky starting at 11 and Crystal at 8. Crystal went for a standard 2 Gate Observer build while Elky chose to Gundam Rush. Crystal was caught off guard by the rush and although he beat back the attack, lost several Dragoons in the process. As Elky continued to produce troops, Crystal was forced to play extremely defensively, but was soon run over by a large Terran force.

Game 2[edit]

Elky cheesed on Neo Bifrost by building a Barracks and a Bunker behind the mineral line. He won the game.

Game 3[edit]

Crystal started at 1 and ElkY started at 7 on Neo Bifrost again. Expecting the same strategy as the last game, Crystal went for a forge first. Elky did try the same strategy again, but this time it failed due to the cannons that Crystal could now build. ElkY tried to contain Crystal with Tanks and Mines, but Crystal soon broke the attack and had a big enough economy advantage to roll over ElkY.

Game 4[edit]

A standard macro game on Neo Bifrost again. ElkY pulled through due to his slightly superior mechanics and his abuse of the terrain.
